Just Blue


Today was one of those days.  I had computer work to catch up with in the morning and I also had a  Zorolla online class featuring Logan Hagege in the afternoon.  I love Logan's work and I was filled with pure joy and anticipation as I watched the hours tick away.  I have a few paintings in process in the studio right now and they all needed a bit more time to dry before the next round of paint so I started a painting totally different from my usual western and animal portraits.  The old truck is called, "Just Blue" due to its look of having better days.  Actually I really love old trucks especially if they still run.  Thinking made for, "A Painting Day".

I love this old blue truck! The painting is very luminous and I like the way you integrated the background color into the truck.

Beautiful old truck! You did a great job in taking the blues and making it all look old.

I pulled up Logan Hagege's web site and although I have seen some of his work in magazines I had forgotten about him. Thanks for the reminder! His paintings are awesome. Even his small 4x4s are fantastic. Also, did not know about Zorolla and their online classes. I would have loved to have seen Hagege's demo.

This has a nice nostalgic look to it. Wonderful!

Nice tint, tones and shades of blue and bits of yellow. Your line work gives it a graphic feel.

Cool composition of the truck. I always adore your animals and apparently now I will like your change of pace! Thanks for sharing about the Zorolla class.

Hi Ruth, I love this subject, and I really like your colors in this ... the way some orange and gold shows through the blue-green of the truck. Interesting cropping, too ... beautiful!
