A True Classic

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 on images.

Design Team: Polka Dot Orchard-

The Project:

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.

Another great country rural living card that is fantastic! Terrific coloring! I'm sure it was a hit with your father-in-law.
