The Yellow Car  – 6″ x 8″ Watercolor


I painted this from a photo by Crispur (Christine) at WetCanvas.  Christine lives in Australia, so that is why you might not recognize the store brands.   Wind is a cellular provider, but I have no idea what Camper is.    In the reference photo, the awnings were plain old black.  Bah humbug.  🙂


About Groucho Marx


Julius Henry “Groucho” Marx was the wisecracking central figure of the Marx Brothers comedy team, waggling his eyebrows in movies like Duck Soup and A Night at the Opera. He was born in New York in 1890. His mother organized the family into a vaudeville act, which didn’t become successful until Groucho began ad-libbing jokes and insults. In the forties and fifties, he hosted the wildly successful radio and TV quiz show You Bet Your Life. He died in 1977.
