Old Caddie


Love these old cars and you always paint them so well

I agree with Heather. It's great that you find these wonderful old cars and paint them for us the enjoy.

Great painting Paul and the little detail on the sign makes it fun.

Like that a lot, Paul!

Great old beast Paul… you are so good at these rusting wrecks!

Heather, Lew, Denise, David and Alan thank you for your lovely comments they are really appreciated. I do think that we have a tendency to paint subjects we like in a more relaxed manner , they also seem to come together easier.

It’s been a while since you did an old car, Paul. Love the faded colours on the paintwork.

On its way to Dixie’s yard… like this a lot.

Great old car Paul and cute little sign.

Lovely painting Paul. Great colours for your rusty car. 🙂

Well painted Paul, interesting to think where that old car has been and what it's done in it's past life.

Thank you Marjorie, Sylvia, Christine, Russell ,Faye and George for your kind comments. I often look at these old vehicles and ships and wonder where they have been etc , part of the attraction I think George.

Great colours on the rusty old car Paul. The "Yard" must be getting full now. Another Goodie Paul.

Thanks Richard , I’ve just extended the yard by a couple or more acres should get a few more in there now.

Lots of character well done

This is a great painting Paul. Love the way you’ve been able to show the cars age and dereliction. Do like your little personal touches as well.

Love the paint work colours Paul, especially the near side wing. It might need more than a lick of paint to pass the MOT. Excellent painting!

Thank Fiona for taking the time to comment.

Excellent, Paul - love the colours on the car and your notice!

Thank you Anne for your kind comment.

Love how you have achieved the age of the paint on the car. It’ full of nostalgia for a car that was once someone’s pride and joy Paul.

Thank you Carole , you have seen clearly how I feel about these old vehicles and ships etc . Strange how we get a bit sentimental about old things like this , maybe it because in a old thing ad well, haven’t found any rust yet , but certainly lot of fair wear and tear.

Great subject, and love the colours, Paul.

Love the colours in this Paul.

Jenny and Diane thank you for taking the time to look and comment , I appreciate it a lot.

Hang on Studio Wall

A4 watercolour on mixed media paper. One of those paintings you do when you can’t think of anything else. Fun to follow but I could not take it seriously, it just seemed to develop. I don’t think it will pass it’s MOT , well not without a lick of paint.

I have sketched most of my life on and off I became interested in watercolour following a spinal injury whilst in hospital but did not follow it up. My eldest daughter bought me a beautiful wooden box set of half pans about twenty five years ago I dabbled on and off until retirement twelve years…
