I painted this toy truck a while back with much better results. The subject is a neat old cast metal toy that is really lacking in detail. This painting just never really came together. Oh well, I will just paint over it tonight. I mixed up a new bottle of medium last night, slightly different from before, I wonder if that had anything to do with this? / Painted over

Still trying to catch up from vacation. Love this truck, it is really fun to paint, and who doesn’t love orange?

Gloria left this old metal toy tow truck on the table for me to paint. The yellow band at the top was a last minute addition.

Another item off the shelves. A lovely old toy cement mixer. At about 8:30 I was ready to pack it in and grumbled to Gloria, “I don’t really want to paint tonight’” but off I went and I have to say, I think it turned out nice. This time I pre-mixed my colors, also back on my gessoboard panels. I misplaced the tape dispenser (in a fit of packing up ebay items), so I will try painting that again soon.
