It's a dundeal...the Lobentruck acrylic painting
This "Lobentruck" painting is like the Energizer Bunny...it keeps going and going and going. Ever visit Mike Bailey's blog? A fab. and passionate painter indeed. Last Friday, he traveled up to my neck of the woods (Davis/Sacramento) from Santa Cruz, where he lives, to do a demo painting of said truck for my City College water color class (who, of course, are also painting the Lobentruck as one of their last assignments for the winter semester!) We painted on the vertical and side by side. I did not complete my vertical version as I wanted to watch Mike perform his magic. Mike composed his painting so as to have the truck in a backyard-like corner with a garage or barn behind and a fence on the side. He slyly stuck a post in the ground to cast a marvelously contoured shadow across the hood of the Lobentruck! I also have posted one of my small Lobentruck h2o studies and at last, my completed acrylic painting.
