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 8×10 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 have now completed the reflection on the bumper guard, the vertical chrome piece in the lower left grille.  It is now complete with the reflected image of the figure of the picture taker.  His shadow curves away from his feet and a curved tree arcs overhead.  With this addition and a few tweaks, the entire lower grille is now complete.

Also new are the reflections of the yellowish house on the upper left hood area.  There is still much to be done with these.  On the right upper grille are the sky and reflected bushes also seen in the central grille.  Finally, the headlight has received some need attention.  It will be completed in the next week or two.

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.
