Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.205

Hello again painting fans.

This week we'll be continuing with our 2 new paintings.

The photos that I will be using are seen directly below. The first photo shows the Monument Rocks in Kansas. Seen below that photo is one depicting a decrepit 1950 Hudson.

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

For this week's installment, I've concentrated my efforts on the old Hudson.

When last seen, the painting appeared as it does in the photo directly below.

Since that time I've continued to work on the painting.

I've continued to add layers of paint to better define the distinctive shape and create the rusty surface that is seen in the photo. First I added a thin layer of blue, then red and finally ochre. I will be making a few changes to it but the current state has a pleasing patina of age.

I've also reshaped the windows and lightened them to provide some visual aid for the additions to come. At this point, the overall shape of the car and windows is nearly how I'd like it to appear.

Finally, the shadow under the car makes it first appearance. However, this is only the first layer of more to come.

The current state of the painting is seen 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.
