ACEO - Massey Ferguson 1

The continuing hot weather 85F (29.4C) seems to keep people away from the show and in the coolness of their homes, but fortunately for us there was a nice breeze blowing which kept things from becoming feeling the humidity 100F (37.8C).

I thought I would work on this painting that I had started a number of years ago (see posts on 02 July 2012 and 09 July 2015).

Using various greys made from mixtures of French ultramarine blue, Antwerp blue and burnt sienna I finished painting in the engine.

Then I finished the small areas of red on the tractor with a mixture of cadmium red and alizarin crimson.

Lastly, I put in a rail fence behind the tractor, with some of the grey mixtures I used on the engine.

If you would like more information about ACEO please go to my post on 11 March 2010.
