Honestly, I think I was more afraid to start this commission than I have ever been when starting a portrait. The owner of this tractor loves it. He is more than proud of it. And so my conundrum (I love that word). Painting nature is a bit more forgiving and less precise than rendering something that has been manufactured. Tractors are specific, they have gears & grills, shiny parts and mucky parts along with very specific angles, perspective and proportions.
