Vista Point, Carquinez Straits

I was looking for some piece of grungy stuff to paint on a very cold Saturday, and found this bit of rusty car. Against a grey day the spring grass was electric green. Again, I was practicing dropping pigment onto wet paper, creating a watercolory background. Then using an opaque dry brush method, I painted foreground car and grass.

  1. I like the richness of the color in the grass area and the junk. There is a good contrast of use of color in the piece.

  2. Just love how the graffitti turned out on the junky car. I saw it and knew you would paint it.
