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.

David, I admire the design of your Lobentruck painting. The complementary yellow/purples, and the repeated circle shapes really bring it all together. wow! Holly
Thanks Holly. Love your profile painting!
This whole thing with a class and three artists painting the same thing is very revealing, Dave. You should be proud of a terrific means of showing how different people paint. Applause!
I'd love to live near you and take your class! Looks like fun and like I'd learn a lot!
These threads are in danger of outliving the truck! Looks like fun, next time give some notice for us partycrashers.
Thanks, Mike. Check out the latest on Terry's site.
Hey, Marian...looks like your work is in the same museum as mine! :)
Nick: Are you suggesting that maybe we do a similar thing with a few of us watercolorists? That would be a gas!
Also the treat with other two.
Tell me when you will be ready for the next duel..
I'm ready to start out 2009 with a duel, Milind! Your photo choice.
You David Lobenberg are the Lobentruck master. The painting has
so much juice I almost believe that if the truck could see it could get out of that mud and drive away on pride alone.
You are gooood!!!
Very cool paintings!
Thank you, Barbara. I worked hard on this one. Terry Miura suggested that the pipes are a little too dominate, and I agree, but the rest of the painting,I like.
Thank you NYC documentarian!
Great paintings, David.
Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays or Happy Winter Season - which ever does'nt piss everyone off.
Nice truck and bright colours!
Thank you Helene.
Onpainting: Howbout "Happy Festivas!"
All three are stunning for different reasons...I love the highlights in yours and the sense of weight and mass!!
It was a fun project, Theresa. Would you ever want to get involved in one of these?
David heck yeah I would!....it would sure be some serious work next to you fellows though...make me work hard!!
You're on, Theresa. I'm trying to get an Aussie artist involved as well. I'll get back to you sometime in Feb. Meantime, welcome!
