Fading paintwork at the scrapyard.


I rather like the cartoon touch Dixie, and the signature is fun!

Brilliant Paul, you must really have some patience to paint this 👏👏👏

Very interesting shapes.

Very good Paul, am impressed !

Thank you all for your very kind comments they are much appreciated. I was not going to put this on the gallery as I thought it a bit messy, however I am pleased that I did.

Always enjoy your cars

Very good cars Paul. .

Really good Paul, love the rust!

I do admire your patience Paul. I like this jumble of auto’s, there are some great negative shapes and the look of rust and faded paint work is really well done.

Nice to see something a little different.. Love it Paul 👌👌👌

Recognised this one straight away. I notice an old Citroen made top of the pile & that looks a lot like my Austin A35 at the bottom. You & I know where old cars go Paul, to that rust heaven in the sky, hope you explained it to your granddaughter.

I like this Dixie - really well done.

Thank you for all for your king comments, it’s always so nice to have feedback and comments. Yes Brian I did tell her about the heavenly scrapyard, mind you she’s 4 going on 40, just gave me a strange look and said yes grandad whatever her elder sisters usual comment when she is not sure if you are serious.

Great subject and super shapes and design. Love it Paul.

These vehicles make such an interesting composition. I really like the design.

Ah, my favourite subject! Love the way you’ve handled this Paul, the way you tackle rust always produces beautiful results.

Thank you for taking time to comment, Carole, Diana and Anthony, I appreciate them very much.

I really like this Paul. Great watercolour

Love your old car paintings, Paul, they are different and always interesting.

Thank you all for you kind comments they are always appreciated.

Lovely set of shapes, restorers dream I would say.

Well done Dixie. I like the effect and subject

Hang on Studio Wall

A4 watercolour, a fun painting of old car at the scrapyard. It was done as a bit of fun following a question fro my 4 year old granddaughter, “ what happens to rusty old cars”. It a bit cartoonishly done , but was fun to do.

About the Artist
Paul (Dixie) Dean

I developed an interest in watercolour painting whilst recovering from a spinal injury . Started painting whilst laid flat on my back using a mirror, did it stop the OT pestering me, but it backfired. When I sat up had to start all over again as I was use to painting through a mirror. Stop painting…
