Painting #1 - Bus 2182

48" x 36"

I have finally completed the first painting in my series of Brill Trolley buses. This painting took much longer than I was expecting because of all the reflections and peeling paint. It was a challenge to capture the decay of the buses in paint.

My starting goal was to complete a painting in the series every two weeks, and although I went over by two days on this one, I still want to aim for two paintings a month. The thing that excited me most about the image from which I painted this was the way the tops of the buses almost disappear into the grey sky. I am going to get going on the second painting soon, and may post some process pictures for that one.

  1. Thanks for taking the time to discuss that, I feel strongly about this and so really like getting to know more on this kind of field. Do you mind updating your blog post with additional insight? It should be really useful for all of us.
