I love antique cars and trucks. They just have so much personality. This old farm truck really caught my eye and I wanted to paint it, immediately. Robert Reid from Paint My Photo generously provided the reference photo. It is oil on 6×6 museum quality Gessoboard. I should probably have painted it a little larger, as some of the details were pretty small at this size. I had to buy a couple of smaller brushes. 🙂 I really enjoyed finding the variety of reds, purples, oranges and pinks in the old red paint.

I had another new painting I planned to show for Paint Party Friday, but I noticed something I’d like to change when I was about to photograph it. That one will have to wait for next week.
