Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.194

Hello again painting fans.

This week we'll be continuing with the painting of the 1949 Hudson. The photo that I'm using is seen directly below.

I'll be using my usual acrylics on an 8x10 canvas.

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.

I've continued to add layers of paint to the painting. The shadowed area of the car is now far darker. The lit area to the front has been painted with an ochre that will provide the basis for rusty areas. (I used the same method to "build" rust in the prior piece.) The shadowed areas between the grill bars are now darker, as are all the background elements.

Finally, the windshield has been reshaped to appear as it does in the photo. Work will continue in the coming weeks.

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.
