Many thanks Fiona and Heather for you kind comments.

It’s got real character

I agree with Fiona, you make it look easy to achieve something lovely out of a rusty old tractor, and I’m sure it’s not easy but you definitely have the skill in observing and painting this kind of subject Dixie. Good work!

Another wonderful painting Paul.

Elaine, Tessa and Karen thank you so much for your very kind comments.

Really like this Paul. Well done.

Thank you Christine I really appreciate that you have taken the time to look and comment.

There's humour in your capture of this old machine, Paul and it looks good too.

Willie thank you for taking time to look and comment I do appreciate it .

Excellent work. Thanks a lot for liking my latest .

Thank you for your comment Dermot , I enjoy your artwork.

Very unusual subject and interesting frame.

Thank you Lea for taking the time to comment, there are a few similar ones in my gallery I do enjoy painting old rusted machines, ships etc.

A real belter Paul. I love your tones and contrasts, they give a great depth. Love the old crank handle detail.

Hang on Studio Wall

A23x36 cm watercolour and pen painting of a rusty old tractor out the back of old workshops. It’s been very difficult to paint as the watercolour just dried up almost instantly and blending was difficult. Still despite that in quite pleased with the outcome, gave up trying too hard and just finished it off. I love hoe the difference bits of old machinery rusty in slightly different ways showing many different layers and colours.
