It is spring here in Maryland and as we drive around our rural county, we see the fields being prepared for planting. We see tractors like this one pulling a cultivating attachment and followed by a small cloud of dust.
This tractor is owned by our marina landlord and has been sitting here for a couple of weeks, begging me to paint it. I drew the sketch yesterday, but before I could get to painting, the sky clouded over and I got cold. Today was sunny and warmer, so I got the painting part done.
“It takes 120 bad paintings to know something about painting.” – Larry Seiler as quoted by Jeff Mahorney in his blog
Each painting is small in format and should be completed in about an hour or less.
My goals are to improve my technique, to paint faster, and to gain experience with a variety of subjects.
