Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.177

Welcome back.






This week we'll be continuing with the painting of the grille of a 1949 Packard automobile. The photo that I'm using is seen in the photo directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylics on an 8x10 canvas.





Seen in a vintage illustration directly below is the entire vehicle showing the grille in context.





When last seen, the painting appeared as it does in the photo directly below.





Since that time I have continued to work on the painting.



I got a little lazy with the holidays but did manage to work on the headlight. It has enough visual weight now to stand with the central grill and provide balance. Painted in grays, blues and whites, I have left the lower portion in white. I may yet change it.



The current state of the painting is seen in the photo directly below.





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.
