Old water bowser


Great job Paul, love it!

Incredibly complex subject beautifully painted Paul. Love all those different pastel shades, especially on the roof.

Great color choices, Dixie. What a grand old truck. Love it.

Nice work Paul full of rusting metal.

Lovely painting Paul and love your colours.

Full of interest and colour.

Brilliant roof and colours.

Fabulous Paul

Thank you all for your kind comments, they are very encouraging and much appreciated.

Good job - particularly like your treatment of the corrugated iron.

Many thanks Dennis, Fiona and Linda for you comments.

Like this Paul, great colours. Your mind must be a wealth of ideas.
