Like “All Mixed Up”, this painting began as a photo taken at the local farm show.
Since I intended to use this painting as a demo, I worked it in 3 stages to use as a “prop”. I began, as usual, by wetting the paper all over and dropping in color. I used simple red (quin. rose), yellow (hansa yellow) and blue (French ultramarine and cobalt).
When that had dried, I began adding more colors to the left and center, gradually building up some definition in layers.

Carol - yep, it's busy, but don't know about "wonderfully busy"!!! Stand by for plenty more of this one!
Diana - thank you so much for your compliment. Anything old and rusty, or old and shiny in this case, is always fun to paint.
