Pickup Truck - Still Blocking In


This morning I decided to continue blocking in with a brush using diluted paint, loosely correcting shapes, angles and proportions.  Can you see how the angles and proportions have changed from the sketch photo previously posted?   

So far I've used French Ultramarine Blue, Pthalo Blue, Pyrrole Orange, Cadmium Red Medium, Quinacridone Red, Cadmium Yellow Medium, Burnt Sienna.  Again, the reds are showing more of an orange-red where areas like the top of the hood are more of a bluish red. 

Again, the reference photo used for the sketch is by SteveMac from the Wet Canvas RIL. This photo was selected for use as the October choice for the YOP at paintingfriends.com, which was due October 20th.  As you can see, I've gotten a late start.
