Painting #2 – Bus 2282

Well, three weeks have passed and I finally have finished my second painting in the Brill series. I procrastinated quite a bit, but today I buckled down and worked on it all day. I like the juxtaposition of the weedy branches with the sharper edges of the bus; that was the main reason I chose to paint this image.

48 x 36 inches
Acrylic on wood

In this posting I would like to make public my appreciation to a retired BC Transit driver named Rick, who kindly supplied me with more bus photographs than I could possibly paint in the next decade. Some of them are of these same trolley buses, but at an older date when they were in a little bit (but not much) better shape. It will make the series much stronger having such a wide range of images to choose from, so thank you Rick.
