Saturday Painting Palooza Vol. 55

Welcome back!

This week, I'll be continuing our new project, the 1950 Hudson Hornet seen in the photo directly below.

When last we were together, the painting was a pencil sketch, seen below. The sketch provided a guide for things to come, setting the proportions and major elements of the vehicle.

By the way, the Hudson Hornets were advanced vehicles with unit bodies, powerful 6 cylinder engines when equipped with the twin carb setup and good aerodynamics. They were NASCAR winners for several consecutive years in the early 50s until the Hornets succumbed to the V-8 madness embraced by other manufacturers. But I digress.

Since the last installment, I've highlighted all major elements of the painting in ochre. I often use ochre for this purpose. It provides a clear outline and is easily overpainted. It appears in its current form directly below.

For next week I'll be adding some colors to the major elements. See you then.
