Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.188

Hello again painting fans.

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 on a 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.

Once again, I've concentrated my efforts on two areas for this week's installment. First, I've added the door handles. Note that some of the shadows seen in the original have been left off. When I attempted to include all the shadows, the handles looked odd and unrealistic. I've made them far simpler and cleaner. At least they don't call attention to themselves.

The other change is the addition of the the reflection to the rear side windowe. The vertical lines are actually a reflection of the steel building standing to the immediate right of the car. I may have to make them less distinct. I'll wait until the middle window is done and decide then. Finally, I've started the rear window.

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.
