Grandpa's Pride and Joy!
I have started another painting of antique/vintage cars. I finished drawing this today and then applied some masking fluid over the areas of chrome and light that I wanted to preserve. Now I can paint freely and without fear of losing my lightest areas. I am going to apply my paint wet-into-wet loosely and pray (like I always do) that it works out! I just want my blog followers to know that I am still working (since I haven't posted in 10 days) - that I haven't fallen into the great abyss of old, tired artists! (Just almost!!!)
This painting is 8" x 18" and is drawn on 140 lb. Acquerello cold-pressed watercolor paper. It is from a photograph taken by my dear friend, and professional photographer, Pamela Baker (www.bakercreekdesigns.com). Thanks, Pam!
