old Bedford truck

Vintage Bedford Truck, watercolour painting

Gone to pasture at the Wanaka Cemetery, this old truck has been my muse before. Last time I sketched it from the front, with it's wonderful grill, rusty bonnet and broken front bumper. But this time I couldn't resist the lovely hand painted sign writing on the side. Hellyer!

The photo above shows the painting after I finished on location on Monday morning. Back home, I decided to tidy the white writing a little with some white watercolour paint and to add a dark shadow underneath. The finished painting is below.
