Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.185

Hello all.

This week we'll be continuing with the painting of the 1952 Hudson. The photo that I'm using is seen directly below.

I'll be using my usual acrylics ona 9x12.

Seen in a period advertisement directly below is a similar Hudson.

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.

The big change for this week is the rust. The car is now seen in with all-over surface rust as it does in the photo. This effect was made easy by the former ochre body color. I painted over the ochre with some thin watery brown paint. The result was instant rust, some 60 years of wear and tear instantly.

The same brown was painted around the window frames, which have now been cleaned up a bit. The windows are now white in anticipation of the changes to come, and for a bit of clarity.

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.
