Wednesday Works - Los Alamitos Sign

Here is a painting that I did about a year ago. It was my first attempt of a painting on the large canvas. The canvas is 24" x 36". It was something that I had wanted to do for a while.....a bold colorful painting. Of course the subject matter was easy for me......something old and rusty. I looked up old signs online and found a couple of images of this Los Alamitos Motel sign. I had to make some changes and cropped most of the pole out. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I used a technique called under painting on this one to get the worn and peeling paint effect. I surprisingly knocked this one out in just a few hours of work. Since then, I have finished another large painting of a motel sign. Scroll down.....Lido Motel More large scale paintings are on the horizon. Aaron Brothers is in the middle of their buy a canvas and get one for a penny sale. I'm gonna try and stock up on some. I've also got some gift certificates from Christmas to burn through at select art supply stores. Contact me for more information or click below if you would like to purchase this original painting. Price $600.00
