It looks like I am going to finish up this bell today at the Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery I’m here from 2:00 to 9:00 today. The bell is getting better. The tree is in. The painting is based off my photos of Dead Horse state park UT.
It’s a bell I weather tested the oil primer and oil paints painted on the oil primer. They hung for 6 months outside so they went from 2 inches of snow to 115 degrees and with no problems.
Added the lights and darks
I put “Oil can on truck rim” back up on the easel for shadows and highlights. It made it have more depth. It’s a 8″ x 10″ oil painting done here at Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery at the Galleria Mall.
Old truck needed highlights and shadows. It looked flat it needed another layer of oil paint to push the house back. I’m at the gallery until 9 today. Then back next Tuesday 1:00 to 9:00
