Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.178

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 have concentrated most of my efforts on the area between the central grille and the headlight. The area between the house reflections now has some of the highlights seen in the photo.

There is now a continuum of images as seen in the original source photo. Of course, there are still details to add and transitions to smooth.

I've also added the highlighted areas seen above the headlight. Finally, the area to the left of the car, seen in the triangle of the upper left, has been prepared for final painting. The fender line has been shaped in the process.

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.
