Old Dodge Truck in Abstract colors of watercolor

Prussian Blue over Cerelean with some Payne's Gray thrown in here and there. rusty colors are Quin Gold under Quin Burnt Orange. I have always loved the combination of those compliments. I think I used Burnt Sienna too. Diaz Purple and some hints of Opera. The greens are mixed with the blues and yellow. I tried to keep the darker values surrounding the headlight area so that the eye would focus there.. 

 I have added a light wash of dark across the bottom of the grill, bumper and lower fender to enhance my focal point and provide even more drama to this piece. It worked. I am not a real methodical painter. This only took about six to eight hours for me to do. Thanks for taking an interest in my process….   I think I like it.  

Half Sheet done on 300# Arches with mostly Daniel Smith paints.

About Kay Lodahl

Started painting about one and a half years ago.  Didn't have any clue I could do it and I have loved watercolor art all my life.  There is so much to know about this wonderful art media.... I am just overwhelmed at times.  Seems like I don't have enough time to learn it all so I have become obsessed with learning all I can.  I believe the biggest plus to my learning curve is to just paint.  There is a lot of value in experience alone.  

I hope you enjoy my "attempts".  I love comments and compliments and critique.  Thank you very much.
