Blue Truck in Flagler Beach

 I recently blogged about a monochromatic "Vintage Truck," from a tutorial by Sarah Cray for "Let's Make Art. This painting is of that same truck, now blue. It's parked next to a Mexican Restaurant in Flagler Beach, Florida.

Sometime ago my husband Sandy Brooke took a number of photos of that area, not far from our home. I used one of those shots to design the background in this watercolor painting. 

 I used several techniques I learned in Paul Clark's tutorials to give my work a realistic look. I used Winsor Newton Cotman watercolor tubes on Canson 140 lb. cold pressed paper. I enhanced the truck with Artists Loft metallic silver watercolor tube paint.
