Painting for the WetCanvas Drawing Event

Today I have been painting a reference in the WetCanvas Drawing Event (WDE). This reference picture really spoke to me, but I found it hard to get started. The original plan was to paint it with regular watercolors, maybe use some salt to get the old rusty look. I know when I find it too challenging I kind of block. So I switched over to deli paper. I drew the truck first with my Pitt pens and then added color with my aquamarkers.

The black and white pen drawing is after about 1 hour, the colored version after another hour.
