Lil' Red Fire Truck

Lil' Red Fire Truck
5x7 Oil on Hardboard
There is something about this little truck.  ::sigh::  I have been struggling for months to do a painting, a dirt race car for a family member.  It will just not sing off of the brush!  Dozen or so attempts and its never quite right!  This little one took all of 45 mins.. and was enjoyable to paint.  Perhaps its the character the truck seems to possess.  Where I am searching for the right look and empathy for the car..  Well that must be it.. lol... could not be me could it?  ;-)

Oops.. Almost forgot!  The Ref. photo was from the Wet Canvas Weekend Drawing Event.. Thanks for hosting Kay!!
