Tia's Tips: If you are anything like me-I don't know cars! And when trying to make a masculine 'car' card-I want it to look like the real thing! So, just like fine art artists-use real life images as your point of reference! Go to Google, type in what you are coloring and instead of search...click on images.

My Father-In-Law's birthday is coming up and my Mother-In-Law asked me if I had any 'Truck' images to make him a card. I was thrilled to find this gorgeous "classic" truck in the shop at Polka Dot Orchard! Knowing that I am not a car person and wanted to make it look authentic, I turned to Google Images to help me out!
I typed in 'classic pickup trucks' into my search bar and then instead of searching-I selected images! and had a slew of classic truck images to help me in my coloring.
I selected this beauty to give me some perspective on light and shadow, what should be metallic and what should be the color of my truck! I really liked the red and decided to copy that too.
I recently purchased a set of Prismacolor colored pencils and they helped me to add additional lines of depth and light to my image.
