Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the the painting of the vintage Hudson photograph.  I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on an 8x10 gallery wrapped canvas.  The photo appears directly below.

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

Since that time I have continued to work on the painting.


I have concentrated my efforts directly on the Hudson.  I spent some time addressing the front tire/wheel.  It has been thoroughly revised.  The tire, now fairly round and with reasonable proportions, houses a highlighted and shadowed wheelcover.  While the band of the whitewall resides a bit too close to the wheelcover, it was well enough painted that I did not want to reverse course to correct the spacing.  It will just have to remain a bit less than perfect.

The chrome molding along the doors and the base has been highlighted and shadowed. It gives the car a nice sweep of length.  (The figure provides an interesting and contrasting vertical.)  Notice that the figure casts her shadow on the black paint and chrome.  Underneath the Hudson, the car now casts a shadow that continues within the front wheelwell.  Looking within the Hudson's windows, the far side of the interior is seen in blue.  Finally, the figure has received some flesh-colored paint.


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.

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.
