This is fantastic! So full of color but more than that...it's balanced color (if that makes sense)

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Cara. I'm posting things that the newer commenters may not have seen.

Good to see these again, it will be great to have them front and centre for anyone checking your blog from the show.

W. K. Moore said...

This one is fun amigo! Want to wish you best of luck on the outdoor show. Persistence!

These are all good ones Ron. Good luck for the weekend, the forecast keeps changing but it's looking better. Hope you sell a bunch.

Michelle Smith said...

Another great one. How did the cars get stacked up like that? Looks like they're all being pulled into a vortex which is the shack.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Clive. Yes it will be a help.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, W.K., Persistence and persevrence made a bishop of his revrence. Somebody told me that one time.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Dorothy. Stewart Marshall, the painter paddler guy who's book I have, will be there.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Michelle. In real life there were two cars stacked one on top of the other. And from there I added more cars and created the scene.

Holly LL said...

Like this one, Ron. And I especially like the rust on the forward car!

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Holly.

Is Marshall showing his work? Don't think I'll be there, the feet aren't great yet.

Ron Morrison said...

Apparently he's a featured artist.

dorothymanserwaterart said...

Take note if he's close to the front and I might stop by.

the rust is nice. This one makes me think of old sleeping dogs ;p (seriously though it does)

Wow, I'm having a hard time keeping up here! Let's see, third one down has a great Rockwellian feel to it for me (don't know you'r opinion on Rockwell but it's meant as a compliment). Second one down, highlights from the sunlight actually look realistic and very cool. Also love the angle of the car.
On the top one here, my eye immediately jumped to the barn. Funny how the cars are stacked but holding up under pressure despite their age, but the barn is having trouble holding itself up. We've still got quite a few leaning and slowly falling barns aound here.

I just wanted to say that I love your cars - the colours and compositions just look very aestetically pleasing to me.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, N.N., I was worried no one would catch the sleeping dog thing.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Grimm, remember I make these things up so goofiness is bound to occur.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Trine.

Love this greeen, greeeeeen

Ron Morrison said...

Hi, Michele, I'm feeling a little green around the grills.

Jared Shear said...

Beautiful watercolors!! I love all of these old cars and the colors and textures on these last couple of paintings are really great.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Jared.

I just read your comments in the comments. Your recomposing is thoroughly convincing. You have a natural sense of placement.

The colors here remind me of the Painted Ladies in San Francisco. For someone who might not know, these are Victorian homes that have been painted in a colorful way, not actual ladies.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Tom. For me the fun is in the evolving composition and the myriad possibilities for colours and textures.
