Ford 9 Inch Part 2

As you can see, I really liked this car part. For a year or so I was interested in oil pastels, and this drawing was done in that medium. I had to stop because it made my wrist hurt, even when lightly pressing on the surface.

Ford 9 Inch

This is an old painting that I did during my "car parts" phase. I loved looking at all the car parts that my husband would have lying around, so I decided to try to paint a few of them. This was painted from life. I really love the intricacy and wild compositions that I could get with the parts, but the colors are decidedly dull , almost uniformly dull metal color and/or rust color, so I found myself really having to punch up the color to keep it from looking too monochromatic.
