Re: "End Of The Line" by Hollan Holmes

Everyone,
Thanks very much for your kind words and warm comments. I'm honored to hear it.

KiwiKate: I'm always looking for the unique and intriguing composition. So glad you like it!

pa-paw: Thank you. The rust, as with the rest of the painting, is built up layer by layer, with each pass a variation in color from the one before. I work light to dark with watercolor, building the layers carefully to achieve the right value, color and texture. Most of the really detailed stuff is done with a Rosemary & Co. Golden synthetic #2 round. I love painting rust. Something about the colors and textures of aging metal just lights me up.

Thank you again, everyone, very honored.

-hhh

Awesome! This looks excellent. Love the colors and use of shadows. Great use of contrast with the lighting. Great job on the rust too...looks real. Perfect! Bravo!
