I wanted to do this old vehicle for a while so I set up there and did it. It had to be painted on location, and you had to post a photo of your easel, etc. This old international is in Plains, TX.
I started out trying to use oils but I don't paint enough with oil to know what to do, so I ended up using a sketchbook, and drawing it with my fountain pen and ink, then painted with watercolor and a little gouache.

I had 10 signed up and due to illness, etc. 3 dropped out. So we had 7 really great fun artists all painting their own style using my drawing. I never did get photos of theirs.
The first picture I did before workshop then I painted one along with them.
There were 2 from Arizona, and 1 from San Antonio area, and 4 from Lubbock.

I did this sketch of this saddle and horse and I liked it so I decided to try it in watercolor.
It was accepted in the NMWS show In Albuquerque NM and I found out it won an award! Am excited just to be in the show but an award is fun too!!
I used brown tobacco ink and love it. I wondered if I could use it on a painting...and think it worked!
