Ta much Bev, I think this (pen & ink) is really going to lend itself nicely to w/c washes. First however.... I need to play about with the ink on some less expensive papers to see how the ink works with the w/c paper. The rougher textures will also present a bit more of a challenge with the dip pen. I had to be very careful that the sharp nib didn't catch on the smooth cartridge paper....sure makes a fine spray when it does!  :2funny:

Zach. Old trucks have been a love of mine most of my life. My first pickup was a 1949 GMC 1/2 ton, then I graduated to a newer vehicle..... a 1951 Dodge 1/2 ton!  ;D

I saw this old truck and just had to draw it. Still want to do a proper painting...... it's in the wings.....  somewhere....  ;D
