I love where this one went. I knew gouache could be used to duplicate the look of oils without the fumes, danger and technical mumbo-jumbo. And, that's sort of where I've been heading. But, this one blows me away. It just fell into place.
This is from a reference photo I took a couple Saturdays back in Asheboro NC. This one is on the small side because I painted it over the course of a few lunch hours at work. It looks a little empty to me now that it's finished. I left out some clutter behind the seated man because it was -- well -- clutter. I might try this one again in a larger size and leave in some of the clutter. I'm pretty happy with it otherwise. It's definitely a step in the direction I want to take. Prints, of course, are available here.
Here's another view of the trucks I painted previously here. I think the composition works even with the closest truck dead center because the red truck puts more weight on the left to make it asymmetrical.
