The Final, Final "Lobentruck"
I wasn't quite satisfied with this acrylic so I added some more yellow hues into the truck, barn, pipes, and tree, added blue violet hues into the shadows, some more texture and lighter values into the barn, added white to the sky, lightened the top of the seed spreader, and lightened and simplified the ground a tad. Now I'm done...time to move on! Terry Miura's (click on his "studio notes") oil painting here is a done deal as well. He is a fabulous painter and is very good at writing about the process of building a painting. I strongly urge you to check out his blog and read about his "Lobentruck". I have also posted Mike Bailey's wonderful watercolor "Lobentruck" iteration that he painted for my water color class. Enjoy. And finally... the reference photo that we all painted from.
