Second Day of Poured 1950 Chevy, May 12, 2010

1950 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery, Hillsboro, Texas

I got to make a second pass at this large watercolor (24 x 18″).  Since I’ve done very little to the ground cover, focusing on the car, I cropped the photo to show the car details a little better.  I like the way it’s developing.  I need to solve the green problem now–not too sure what colors to introduce to make the green field & forest look better.  Tomorrow (Thursday) will be my last chance to work on this for awhile.  I’m packing to go to Granbury, Texas for a Friday-Saturday plein air event sponsored by the Outdoor Painters Society.  If I cannot return to this car tomorrow, then it will probably be Monday before I can do so.  Again, the same sad story–too much school crap to do and almost no time for outside activity.  Only fifteen days to go, though, and I can’t get it done quickly enough.

Thanks for reading.

Wildflowers among the wreckage

School has been keeping me buried in work, but I did manage to escape late Sunday afternoon, driving an hour south of where I live to capture this quick scene of a panel truck abandoned in a field of wildflowers.  The sun, shadows, and temperature of the day was gorgeous beyond description, and I could have stayed for hours.  But alas, there is still schoolwork to do and I’ll be up late again.
