Lawn Ornament II

Lawn Ornament II 9x12 oil on board
I took a photo of this pickup truck on a lawn after I painted it on a Wednesday plein air get-together. The truck owner assured me that it would be there for a few months because he couldn't afford to fix it. A couple of weeks later, it was gone. I was glad I took a photo.
This was painted with a limited palette so I would focus on the values. I simplified the background. I tried not to get too detailed with the truck. I can see a slight perspective issue with the headlights. I will fix that later. 
Anyway, here is my 9x12 painting of Lawn Ornament II.

Thank you, Randy. I re-read your information sheet you handed out a few weeks ago and found it helped me organize my thoughts. Wonderful information.
