Filled in quite a bit of the background today and that is looking pretty good – still some tidying up to do and a bit more to add in the windscreen area of the car.
Still need to fix the twisted radiator – I’ll need to sit down and have a good look at my reference and work out why it is looking so curved and not sitting quite right. (Didn’t feel like doing that today – wanted to get some more colour on the paper). Maybe getting the tones right on the headlamps will make a difference too. It’s amazing how just using the right colours/tones can make something sit right in a painting – that it is not the shape of a subject but the colours you place on them that make them three dimensional.
I’m enjoying painting this old car, even if the measuring was a chore. And I’m not going to let that radiator beat me!
