Motts: 1st Completed Commission Piece


Motts
oil on canvas
30'' x 30"

I felt that I could have continued to work on this, but Karen assured me that it was a finished painting. It is often difficult to know when a painting is truly complete. There were areas that I felt I could refine a bit more, but when I really thought about it, I came to the realization that no one would see the extra work except me. So, here's number one. I'll send an email off tomorrow to the liaison working this project, and with fingers crossed, hope for a positive response. Then it's on to number two. Although, I may squeeze an ebay painting in first. I've got another 55 Chevy I'm anxious to do, and would prefer not to have to wait until this project is complete. I'll decide tomorrow.

It looks great, you're really good at capturing reflections and color. I would love to know your working process, do you use a grid to transfer your drawings to the surface?

Hi Neil, Stunning painting. The reflections are superb as is the texture of the applesauce.
