The "Chrome Monster" in progress.

I just thought I'd share a picture of my latest piece in-progress.  I'm jokingly calling it the "Chrome Monster" because it is so absolutely loaded with shiny, reflective chrome, which is a challenge for me to paint realistically.  I think the real name of the piece will be "When Cars Were Cool" or something like that.

Anyway, all I've done so far is outline everything, paint some lines to indicate main value areas, and start blocking in some of the darkest value areas.  I went a little furter than that with the hub cap though, and blocked in all of the main value areas except for the brightest highlights, which I will save for last.

Thank you for reading! I welcome your suggestions on how to make this blog more interesting to you! Photography Prints

  5. Hi Vicki, This looks like a good strong start to the Chrome Monster. I always find that if I get a good beginning to a painting, it all works swimmingly after that.

  6. Your artwork is beautiful! Thank you also for stopping by my site. I hope you have a lovely day.
