An exercise in texture

This was a great photo for practising texture in a painting.
The old rusty truck abandoned in the autumnal woods gave great scope for trying out many different techniques.

Dry brush, cling film, wet on wet, wet on dry, candle wax and masking were all used here.

Successful or not?
You can decide - I only know I thoroughly enjoyed myself painting it !


  1. I find it wonderfully successful!!

  2. I usually like your blues and greens but now I like the brown you used for the ground and what I think is rust on the truck.

  3. Thanks, Marie.
    Glad you're liking the browns too - and yes, that is meant to be rust on the truck :)
