For some reason these old vehicles call out to be painted. This one was no exception. I played up the blue and orange dynamic, and was interested in the dormant line of trees behind the truck. I tend to like landscape subjects that offer good, level horizontals, as does this. I often exaggerate that as well, feeling that the horizontal is important in tying the subject to the ground.
Out to Pasture is an oil, 18×18.
