Hello again painting fans.

This week we’ll be continuing with the painting of the 1952 Hudson.  The photo that I’m using is seen directly below.

I’ll be using my usual acrylics on a  9×12.

Seen in a period advertisement directly below is a similar Hudson.

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’ve now completed the car windows.  First up was that challenging center side window.  Full of vertical reflections, it tested my patience just a bit.  Eventually, I was able to get things right, working in the same shades of gray as the rearmost side window.  It now seems to have a kind of movement if viewed for a moment or two.  (Or maybe I just need to have my middle-aged eyes examined.)

Next, I moved on the the front side window.  This one was relatively simple being devoid of much detail.  It was the backlight, or rear windshield, that was next.  Having blocked out the main areas previously, I was able to paint in the grays and brownish area.  By the way, that brownish or ochre area is the headliner starting to come down from the car’s ceiling.  It’s an interesting bit of automotive decay, but not unexpected in a car of nearly 60 years of age.

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.
