Abandoned

abandoned carThis is a story book illustration kind of painting I did sometime back from a photo. The colour of the car was a shade of blue. I changed it to brown for 2 reasons. First a brown color would give it a better rusted feel. Second the warm color will stand out when placed against mostly cool greens.

The best part for me in the painting was the wheel, which I did quiet spontaneously with minimal brushwork. My dream is to be able to do an entire painting in a similar manner. Minimal brush strokes and spontaneity.

Workhard, Your comments for all my paintings till now are highly appreciated. I have used water colours for this painting. Camlin artist quality set. And answer to your previous question about whether I have taken any professional course, is negative.
