10. Color your pickup truck. Vehicles can come in a rainbow of colors, so be creative. Why not expand your drawing to include an entire scene? Put some clouds in the sky and grass beneath the wheels. Perhaps this truck is about to be crushed by a monster truck. Or, maybe it is hard at work on the farm, tending cows, horses, and pigs. It is your drawing, so the choice is yours.
