Above is the photo I took of the logging truck while visiting a local motorcycle repair shop. The owner had several old antique logging vehicles on his property. I thought they were worthy of a painting.
Below is a gallery of shots depicting the process or steps I am using to achieve the final paining. The painting is ongoing so come back often to check out my progress. So far, so good.
Here are the colors used: Titanium White, Cadmium Yellow Light, Indian Yellow, Cadmium Red Deep, Alizarin Crimson, Raw Umber, Burnt Umber, Raw Umber, Hooker’s Green Light, Hooker’s Green Deep, Phthalo blue, Ultramarine Blue, Payne’s Grey.
I’m back onto my painting horse. Close to my home there is a motorcycle shop called, Smokers-N-Strokers. They are a bunch of great guys that repair, build, and refurbish motorcycles, Harley Davidsons in particular.
On the property there are several old antique logging machines resting and rusting gently in the vegetation. Below is my latest work of one of the machines, painted from a photograph I took. Sorry for the watermark. Enjoy!
Here’s the process of how the project was completed.
This site features the watercolors and oil paintings of artist David J. Massey, a recently retired high school teacher. During his long career Mr. Massey taught computer technology and visual art. He plans on bringing instructional material in the form of how-to videos, as well as “blow by blow” visual descriptions of particular paintings.
All original paintings can be purchased if not already sold. Prints of all paintings are available. Use the email form on the “Contact the Artist” page for pricing and availability.
