10x8" oil on canvas panel
This was done with one brush, a Utrecht #6 filbert of some sort.
I'll start by saying hydrants are difficult to draw. This is my second attempt, I couldn't live with the drawing on the first one. What's the point of painting a hydrant? Good question. I'm not sure. I will say that the hydrant, perhaps overlooked and unappreciated by all except dogs, would surely be seen as a thing of great beauty if one's house were on fire.
As a painter I think I was attracted to the pattern of light, the colors and the challenge of drawing an oddly shaped structure.
