I just completed the watercolor of the dead tractor from the Garden of the Woods.  The tractor has seen better days as you can see from the tube hanging out of the tire rim.  This is the first watercolor painting in about a year.  However it is more of an illustration, but I like the style.   Based on a photograph I took, I used light pencil and then my pen to make the sketch on 140 CP Arches Watercolor paper.   I will be doing more of this style in the future.
