WDE 24/5/15 Old Truck

Thanks to our host, KreativK, for the interesting images and challenge.
Here's my sketchbook version, using an Elegant Writer calligraphy pen and watercolours. 30cm by 25cm. Thanks, Michael.

Good work Michael, I like the bold lines of the truck in contrast to the softness of the fence and background.

This is GREAT!! I love the muted b/g to give the old truck the support it needs to be the star of your painting.

Nice truck Michael. I like the way the black lines bleed into the paint of the truck...it gives that feeling of age.
