Antique Tractor

Painted this early 1900's tractor
from a photo I took at Cottonwood Canyon State Park.
It was once a sprawling ranch acquired by the state
in north central Oregon along the Deschutes River. 
The park still has the old barn and windmill,
as well as several ancient farm implements.
I didn't want this painting to be a landscape with tractor,
so I used a sketch approach to highlight this wonderful old rusty tractor.
I really like this look.
6" x 8" oil on canvas panel
available on DPW auction
starting bid $30.

  1. I really like this approach too, giving this classic old tractor centre stage is a lovely touch!!
