Anyway, this was a lot of fun because of the red truck and the glass and the reflections. I hadn't had any experience with such things, so I learned a lot from it. Hope you like it. Unlike most of my paintings, it's in acrylics as usual, but it's on a heavy watercolor paper, which I wasn't crazy about painting on, to be honest about it. First of all, it ate my poor hand up; it's really scratchy, which surprised me. Also, not being a watercolorist, I didn't realize how much watercolor paper soaks up any moisture. I like rich, saturated color, so I really had to lay the paint on - over and over and over! I'm finally happy with it, though. But I won't use watercolor paper again with anything but watercolors, if I should ever decide to give them a try.
