Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.173
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've concentrated most of my efforts on the wide chrome area just below the central grill. Seen for the first time is a reflection to the left side of the bumper that is apparently the roof of the yellowish house reflected in several other surfaces. Also depicted is the rather deep blue sky. The remainder of the upper bumper has been painted in blue and white areas as seen in the photo.
The edge of the bumper has been painted in lines of blue, white and gray. I am not completely satisfied and will revise this slightly.
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.
