This week we’ll be continuing with our painting of the used car lot, featuring a 1959 Volvo. The photo which I am using is seen directly below. (The painting is 9×12.)
When last seen here, the painting appeared as it does directly below.
Since that time I have continued working on the painting. I’ve painted the 2 ancillary vehicles to the left and rear of the Volvo. Although the photo has more vehicles, I’ve kept it to a total of 3 to avoid too much visual clutter.
I’ve kept these 2 vehicles to various shades of blue, providing contrast to the red of the Volvo. However the blue grille, wheels and interior of the Volvo tie into the colors of the other 2 cars. The windows of the new vehicles have been painted in an opaque fashion, further minimizing the visual clutter.
This particular car lot had vehicles of various vintages. The car to the left of the Volvo is from the mid 70s, behind is a late model.
The current state of the painting is seen in the photo directly below.
That’s about it for now, see you next week.
