View Full Version : Out to Pasture - Watercolor & pen/ink

10-18-2007, 06:58 PM
I was looking for a new pen/ink project, but when I saw this image in the reference library (thanks, She-She), I had to get out the watercolors because nothing does rust quite like watercolors! I love how the pen & ink brings out the details. It's 8x10 on Arches 140 lb. cold-pressed. As always, C&C welcome and appreciated. Now, back to looking for that new pen/ink project...

Susan, I too thought of doing this piece. I love old trucks and cars, especially ones that have been abandoned. She She always has some great images. You really do need to tell her about this.
