Wasteland Buick - watercolor

watercolor, 2019
available, 11"x15"

      Just an old Buick left to its own devices on the prairie. I used a little thinned gesso to knock back some of the color intensity in the bottom corners. I like the look of the gesso rather than just lifting with a wet brush. There's also a considerable amount of dry-brush to get the lightest grasses.


  1. I admire your detail work and realism.

  2. I love this painting. Where I live in Coastal BC there are old vehicles abandoned throughout the surrounding forests, especially old logging equipment. They all would make great painting and drawing subjects. - Margy

    1. Thanks! I wish I had greater access to stuff like that to shoot my own reference photos.

  3. How extraordinary you are! I LOVE this. You are an amazing artist--this just fills my eyes.
