Ford Mercury at Noon

8×10 Watercolour – There’s something about a lovingly restored, old Ford Mercury heading across the Grand PrĂ© dykes on a summer’s day.  This was a good opportunity to play with linear perspective and rule of thirds in my composition. The main shadow was under the truck, so it was pretty close to noon when I took the reference photo last summer. Is there a feel of magic realism to the scene? Can you hear the summer sound of grasshopper wings?
