Hello again painting fans.
This week I will be continuing with the painting of the 1949 Packard. I'm using my usual acrylic paints on a large 20x20 inch gallery-wrapped canvas. The photo that I am using is seen directly below.
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.
There are many changes this week. First, I've completed the headlight to the rear. You can get a sense of how things will look when the remaining light is done. To the bottom, I've added a shadow below the car. Previously, the Packard looked like it was floating in space. Now it is well grounded, so to speak. I've lightened the color of the bumper face to bring it in line with the other chrome elements. Finally, the highlights of the car now appear in blue instead of the prior white. I think that it brings a unity and/or consistency to the various elements.
The current state of the painting is seen in the photo directly below.
I'll have more progress to show you next week. See you then.
