    My Pop's PickUp

    I thought as long as I was painting my cars, I couldn't leave out my '64 Chevy PU. So here it is. Pop always just called it truck, so that's its name "Truck" Still the orig paint job, a little banged up, but still essentially original. This is all AirBrush, One Layer. Not photo-manip.

    Jibes, Ev - Thank you both! This was easier than the Hudson - Maybe because of just doing it.

    More than the pickup, I'm sorta envious of you with a pop who would own something like this. Very telling choice of subject. Man who uses his hands?

    Very cool picture. Glass reflections especially are neat.

    It's a great pickup for sure. Great composition and I like the worn paint as well. Great job on this Skylar. Glad you mentioned it was total airbrush because it does indeed come close to photographic quality.

    DAkey - Thanks for the comments. My Pop was a hard working guy his whole (long) life. One of the things he impressed upon me was the value of things and people. "If it ain't broke, Don't fix it, and If it still works, keep using it" He was proud that everything he owned was paid for.

    Gz - I'm surprised. I didn't think this was as tight as the Hudson. If you blow it up, you'll see lots of little places where I dropped the ball. I did the piece with extreme magnification at 300 PPI. Also, I tinted the canvas a light green (Windshield is just bkg showing thru, with branches painted on.

    this is nicely done. If it had no "mistakes", or "drop the balls", it would be a photograph and would not have the interest that this has.

    Beautiful work with the airbrush. That is a great tool in the hands of the right person. I also am glad you said it was not a photo reproduction because that was my first thought when I saw it.

    Great job
    Carl
