I did this one in oils a while back. But today wanted to do it in pastels as something looser and faster. (The 1930s Caddy I'm working on - I needed a break from working so tight.)

So this is 8 x 8 on Wallis. Not a great photo, tho. It' a bit soft.

Hi, Johnnie,

Love the painting - I bet it has much more impact in person.

Lovely Johnnie! I can just feel the cold of the metal bowl.

Terry - thanks.
Paula - good chrome bowl - it's a dog bowl! heh
Gary - it's loose for me. I don't do loose easily. Weird, huh?
Sandy and DF - thanks!

This one is tight... LOL

It looks really good except for the wood grain. It seems to curve on the right side while it's straight on the other side. It might be the camera.

I like them both and really feel more of the shine of the bowl in the 2nd one. It's always challenging to work looser isn't it?

I'd be proud to have painted either or both. After seeing all the detail in your cars... I can appreciate the need to do something different.

Keep em coming.

Tammy - yeah I see that grain and that ain't no camera issue. Thanks - I can fix that.

Barb - oh, the 2nd one is much better and show how much weaker the first one is. But it took 20% of the time :). I'm not sure that it doesn't need some help, still.

I think I prefer the cherries in the first one and the bowl/background of the second... Why not cut one out and do a little decoupage... :) I am TOTALLY jealous of your skills with chrome and the realism you paint....

Melodie - thanks!
Adiecane - well that idea won't work. One is oil, one is pastel and the oil painting has sold. :)

Both are quite good! The one in oil could have been a reference photo for all I could tell.

I like the design of the second one. Skillful rendering in both!
