2011 Transformations Project: Day 3 & 4

Day 3

Day 4

Day 4
Two more rather hot mornings working on the box  brought progression. I'm re-defining the big shapes, added trees, rocks and tweaked colors.  The brush gets a little smaller as I get down to details.

2011 Transformations Project: Day 1 & 2

Primed Transformer Box
1987 VW Vana-studio

Day 1-underpainting

Day 2: Shade!

East Side, Day 2
 I started painting my transformer box this week.  The theme is Fort Namaqua based on the 1800's Western Fort built by Mariano Medina.  I will be painting this 45" x 75" box over the next 3 weeks with acrylic paint. It's a challenge with hot summer weather, a busy street and 5 large sides to cover.  How else can you grow without a challenge?
