Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.169

Welcome back.

This week we'll be starting an entirely new painting. Sometimes you just need to shake things up. For this cycle I'll be leaving temporarily the realm of landscape paintings for something a little different. The photo that I'll be using is seen directly below. It is part of the grille of a 1949 Packard automobile.

Seen in a vintage illustration directly below is the entire vehicle showing the grille in context. This particular design is interesting because it combines the narrow central Packard grille of earlier models with a wide lower grille typical of the late 40s. Separated by painted bodywork are the headlights, also a design throwback.

I have begun with those all-important first brushstrokes. Seen directly below is the current state of the painting.

That's about it for now. Next week I'll have more progress to show you. See you then. As always, feel free to add photos of your own work in the comments section below.

Earlier paintings in this series can be seen here.
