Again, I'm not sure what the appeal is of an old, abandoned truck decaying into the landscape but I find myself attracted to the motif time and time again. These scenes dot the western desert landscape, it's always like finding a little treasure when you see one. In this case I had to help the scene, the reference photo came from my exploration of a salvage yard outside of a small, rural Utah town. The 1950 Chevrolet flatbed truck was green, I changed it to yellow to play off the bright blue sky. I started this one with a palette knife underpainting, every now and then I kind I just have to play with thick paint and heavy texture. Painting these old trucks sure is fun.
