Farmall F20

Handwritten letters, you don't get them nowadays anymore. But I recieved one this week from Delft, which has nothing to do with this drawing, except that the request in that letter reminded me of an unfinished drawing from our USA trip. 
This sketch was not in one of my sketchbooks, but on a loose sheet of watercolour paper (Schut 300gr/m2), that's why I had forgotten about it. The paper has a vivid grained texture, I don't always like that. But the paper behaves well with the colours. You can see the unfinished version below. I finished the sketch yesterday evening.
It's an old rusty tractor of the brand Farmall, dating from about 1930. Type F20 (you can find anything on Google these days).
It stood next to some other carwrecks and old farmstuff at Ruby's Inn, where we stayed after our visit to Bryce Canyon, Utah.
That evening I took the opportunity to make some sketches, see also

Nou, in eerste instantie had ik niet het gevoel dat een leuke tekening werd. Zo zie je maar weer.
