Welcome back.



This week we'll be continuing with the painting of the grille of a 1949 Packard automobile.  The photo that I'm using is seen in the photo directly below.  I'll be using my usual acrylics on an 8x10 canvas.



Seen in a vintage illustration directly below is the entire vehicle showing the grille in

context.



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 started by adding some dark areas to the grille openings.  With this change I am anticipating the the contrast that will be needed in that portion of the piece later on.


I've also painted in another layer of the green body color.  Finally, I added a layer of blue and white to the various sections of the bumper and shadowig to the headlight.  All of these changes are seen in the photo directly below.



I continued by further refining the grille bars.  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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
