My 84 year old neighbor has a 1950 something truck and '50's cadillac' that has been sitting in her yard since her husband died in the early seventies. 'They are where he left them' she tells me.
I'm going to see if I can't get some good photos for you.

This painting is wonderful! I love old trucks - and old trucks in a beautiful landscape are especially great!

silvina said...

Fantastic, Robin! It looks like you put as much effort into the grasses as to the truck, but the truck stays the focal point.

Did you know that Mike B. and David Lobenberg also posted truck paintings? Is it a coincidence?

Mike said...

Hi Vikki! I have enjoyed hearing about your neighbor...I hope all is well with her....and yes! I would very much like to see your photos!

Robin Weiss said...

Thank you Chris! Your avacados are great!

Robin Weiss said...

Hi Silvina! I do have a bit more time into this painting....The light coming through the grasses was very attractive to me...but as you say, the truck as the focal point needed more power.....I achieved this in part by drawing from a workshop by Gamblin on the difference between modern and classic colors, using the more modern Thalo (which I never use) to draw out the glow of the blue shadow of the truck.....=]

Robin Weiss said...

Thanks Mike!...I'm going right now to check out your truck!

Welcome Milind! Glad you stopped by!

Robin Weiss said...

Silvi, I find the thalo works well in moderation mixed thinly with other blues...

Robin Weiss said...
