My Dream Car...

No, really, this is what I dream of owning one day - you can keep your brand new gadget-filled cars, I would love an old battered American pick-up truck.

This is a watercolour painting I did using a photo of a truck we saw at a car show earlier this year and then putting it in an imaginary meadow. It's the first time I have successfully painted any kind of motor vehicle - it even passed muster with my other half who restores classic cars for a living. I think it's the closest I'll ever get to my dream..
