Model A Pick-Up Truck - Krista #16

Painting #16 of 100 Paintings in a Year
Graphite, 9x9” Aquabee Deluxe sketchbook

This is obviously not a painting, but part of my focus in the 100 Paintings Challenge is to hone my skill regarding values.  Although there were some underlying graphite washes, I don’t particularly like watercolor pencils because all the water does is push the color or graphite around.

This is definitely going to be a full watercolor painting later in the year.

I like the cropped view. Wonderful pencil work and tones. I sometimes love pencil work more than color.

Such a beautiful car this one! I am just wondering how much time one has to spend just to make the spokes on the wheel look so beautiful :) it's mind-blowing!
