Re: Truck stop WIP

Love the subject, the setting and the colors in the truck...just so unexpected to see pinks, reds, and blues

Re: Truck stop WIP

Hi Deirdre....hope it was a good weekend away..... From the peanut gallery here...or is that the popcorn gallery here....That front wheel is beginning to look a little small there. I realize that you have only sketched it in and may not be doing much more but a bit more width would make it more substantial...or a narrowing of the hub in the center (making it a taller an narrower oval) would have the same results being that it seems to be on a bit of an outward turn.

Cheers, Dianna

Re: Truck stop WIP

What an odd old character this guy is!

I love this, especially the little sprig making it's nest under the hood!

Wonderful WIP, thanks for sharing.
