Vernal Old Truck Cab

This was an experiment with a light plein air kit for sketches. My wife had a 2 day conference in Vernal, Utah. This was an abandoned truck cab and storage tank in the field across from the hotel. C&C Welcome. Gary

Nice light in this one Gary. I particularly like the way the sky works to help heighten the light in the trees.

Thanks Alan. I am hoping this is a start to more wc/gouache sketches plein air. It is an easy kit to take with me. Gary

I have avoided such subjects - they make fantastic paintings but I am afraid of the complex angles and curves ... the perspective. You handled it beautifully.

Re: Vernal Old Truck Cab

Thanks Thomas. I am trying to see how far I can go with watercolor/gouache with these types of subjects. Gary
