Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.411

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting of the Porsche 928. The photo that I am using is seen directly below. I will be using my usual acrylics on an 11x14 gallery-wrapped canvas.

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

Since that time, I have continued working on the painting.

Essentially, I have gone over the entire painting. The car now appears more solid with its edges and contours defined by black lines. These shall disappear with further applications of paint. I hope to have the highlights and shadows define the contours as things progress. Moving below, the pavement and shadow have both received another layer of paint. To the rear, I have painted in the main elements comprising the building and the far horizon, such as it is. I'm not completely happy with the leading edge of the car. Both that and the car's surface/reflections will be the subjects for next week.

The current state of the painting is seen directly below.

I'll have more progress to show you next week. See you then.

Earlier paintings in this series can be seen here.

Life loves to get in the way of stuff, you know? This new one is coming along pretty well, now. Me, any time I try to fix a drawing, I end up making things worse. :-P

I like the subject. The bug-eye headlights are distinctive, and a Porsche is always a crowd-pleaser. Too bad it's parked in front of a dealership! You could always paint a scenic overlook behind it…

Heh. I could do paint it in front of the Grand Canyon. ;-)
