Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.211

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 continued with 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.

This week's installment includes both good and bad elements. (Or at least good and bad as I see it.) I've painted the pavement, adding a somewhat translucent layer of gray with some blue. The underlying brown/ochre color still peeks through, adding both warmth and color consistency with the rust of the car. I think that it works fairly well.

The bad comes in the form of unintended green color on the bit of car body seen in the extreme left foreground. Being partly color blind does have its drawbacks. I suspected that the ochre color had changed and this was confirmed to me by madame boran. It will be repainted for the next installment.

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.
