It's great to see the original sketch Rich. I don't know how you managed to "channel" my recollection of that old truck, the illustration is spot-on. It gives me great pleasure to be able to see your work on these boards. I think you may very well be the Peter Helck of our generation !

I see we have jumped to page 2. I will repeat the illustration here for continuity sake.

The description in your story was complete and intriguing. Finding some old pictures brought it together. Also, our minds have run down the same crooked little path for many years.
Thanks for the kind words.

I do enjoy your paintings and admire your talent. I have a soft spot in my heart for Coupes since I have a '22

Just thought I should add a piece to the "color" discussion.
Because part of the work I did for so many years involved color television, I was made aware of this significant difference. Mixing colors in the common sense, like mixing paint or yellow light through a blue lens is called "color additive" mixing. The reason a color tv uses a different mix is that the phosphors used on the screen that are "excited" by the cathode ray to display for a fraction of a second a tiny piece of the picture that collectively becomes the television picture, do not mix the way two paints or a light and a lens do. What they do is called "color subtractive" mixing.
Frankly, I do not understand it well enough myself to explain it. It was just something I needed to be aware of with my work. I know it exists, and I know what it was called.
I suspect that the yellow light through a blue lens may not be a true "color additive" mix, But I don't know about that. Color subtractive works similar for some colors, different for others. Again, I don't know enough about it. I sometimes wonder how the early engineers working to develop color television felt back in their day trying to make the thing work.

There's something very appealing about that '09 under six inches of new snow that makes me want to experience getting her started, and plowing through drifted roads, something I've never done. A couple of years ago when we had heavy snows in the valley, my Lizzie was laid up, undergoing an operation to correct the ravages of the "grey death" (aka babbit thrust washers). Snow drifted deep enough I couldn't have gotten out of the shop anyway ! We're pretty much ready for anything now. Oh boy ! Winter !! My favorite thing !! :lol:

I did get my '09 out for photos a year or two ago but the light wasn't really right. This is one of the photos.

Rich B. bite your tounge! Its 85 here today. About 10 degrees above average which is too hot for me but I remember earlier this year -22. A nice sunny 65 would be great.

Bench test was inspired by the delightful colors and shapes these items have. My Daughter confiscated the painting so can see it when I visit her.

Another study of Model T era items is this one. I posted this in Feb 2018 on the old forum but thought I would include it here also.

Another great painting. I enjoy this one very much. Like your daughter I will confiscate this one and you can come see it when you visit me.

Thanks Dennis. You are nothing like my daughter but I would come visit you if you lived as close. :lol:
I'm glad you like these.

Years ago there were dozens of these old bodies hiding in the vegetation of Idaho. Not having room to put them or an interest in all years we didn't attempt to retrieve many. Now most are gone and houses have sprung up where the old stuff was. Many were used for target practice or a source of sheet metal. This one survived on a friends ranch long enough for me to get a photo and paint from it.

I love this one !

We were mighty picky in the 60’s, and at the time, I, for one, somehow thought the hulks would always be there, along with the Hoover wagons that provided a wealth of frames, wheels, running gear parts, and not infrequently, usable tires. Returning to the hunt for rust in the mid-70s I was shocked to find the wooden spokes had rotted out and horizontal-lying sheet metal was mostly all rusted through :o

Thanks Rich. Those were great days tromping through the sage brush and junkyards. "Memories!"

5 years ago I did this painting.
TTbyRaill.jpg
It brought some nice comments including a suggestion that the "trucks" (wheel carriages) were not correct for that era from David Dewey. David and I became great Forum friends and he helped me correct the painting. Discussions like that have kept it interesting in continuing to paint these old images.

I see now that that is not a current version of the painting. Poor memory and disc failures make keeping track of a hundred or more painting files a bit much for this old soul.

It has been a while since I posted a Model T painting. I have been working on this one for the last week or two. It is nice when we can keep doing the things that we enjoy while the world around us struggles with the problems at hand. I hope most of you can find some normalcy these days.
StrawHattt.jpg
I posted a photo of this guy called "Proud of the old Fliver" on May 5th. Mom could tell me a great story about him if she were still here. The broken rear windows and the mud splatter tell me the car is just transportation and a few years old. I believe the license plate is Montana 1925. I had to improvise the right hand 20% to fit the image of the canvas. Fortunately there are lots of photos of Model Ts around.
I may fine tune some more detail or not. It is always hard to tell when they are done.
Best wishes to all and stay healthy.
Rich
