Truck Series

This is the second image from my new truck series.  It’s the same truck as the in the last post but I redrew it to correct some proportion issues.  I also did the painting on watercolour paper.  I’m happy with it and I think it’s ready to go.

One small point about this drawing that I’m very happy with is that I drew the front tires angled toward the viewer.  In the photo they were angled the other way.  It’s a much more inviting composition done that way.  It’s similar to the way that watches are usually photographed with the hands at 10 and 2.

I also want to mention that for both these drawings I first drew a box that touched the outside edges, on each side,  of the truck.  I need the security of being able to accurately work out the proportion and using boxes really helps me.
