"Five Window Chevy"

"Red 5-window Chevy" Watercolor, 7"x10", Price $245.00

I was out for a country drive with my wife the other day. We had to deliver my broken table saw motor to a shop in Troy Idaho. I am always on the look out for things to paint. we came across this old 5 window chevy truck, and I stopped to snap a few quick shots. One of them I decided to paint. I painted it today while I sat in m booth at an art show in Lewiston Idaho. They have the dogwood festival this time of April every Year. If you are in the area, stop by. There is some pretty neat art there. See the photo below that I worked from. The original truck photo was kind of a funky orange color. I thought a more red color would work better in the painting contrasting better with the grass and green trees. for purchasing info of the original painting, click here to visit my daily paintworks gallery. to buy a print of this image, click to visit my etsy store.
