I always am excited to do paintings of buses for enthusiasts, so commissions are most welcome.
I usually paint in all the dark areas first. I almost always start with a bright orange underpainting, and draw on top of that to begin the painting.
This is at the "almost done" stage. I usually paint the second most dominant colour (in this case a creamy white) as the second step. For this painting, however, I painted the background first so I could see how the other colours were interacting.
This is the final painting: 48 x 36 inches acrylic on wood. Thanks to Rick for the opportunity to paint his lovely bus.
