Edward S. Martinez  Lifelong artist residing in Soledad California, I paint with Urethane Enamel, Pencil Colors, Acrylic, Oil Paint, and root of all evil the No. 2 pencil

More progress on this piece, thru struggles and loss, thru personal triumph and short blissful moments I find the time needed to return to that which I love, to be in a one track minded focus, concentrating on color, on brush and trigger control, to share with you those quick bursts of creativity that fuel me throughout the work week, that I may return again to that place where I left off. Happy Mothers day to all.

Some progress on this piece this weekend before the week begins once again. One bit at a time, just like being on a walking trail that is treacherous, but full of small triumphs, opening new trains of thought.

Getting some progress done on a Sunday morning

Development of foundation; fighting for the time, fighting to keep breathing, one thing I am no longer fighting, is the flow of my work and getting it down to share with the world.....

Making some cuts before bedtime, gotta keep going up that hill.....

Different angle provides some color shift and background grind activation.

'One of a Kind Merc' is now complete, size is 36"x48" inches all done in House of Kolor Kandy and striping and lettering enamel on 6061 T6 Aluminum panel. Grinds were created with various diameter abrasives and scribes as well as hand sanded areas utilizing 600 grit sand paper. The painting is only as good as the foundation it's built on, this substrate helps the painting speak in bright light as well as low light conditions, ever-changing according your point of view, this kind of painting never stays put, never gets old, and goes on revealing. The paint was thrown down with Kafka, Windsor and Newton, and Daniel Smith Brushes. Spraying duties were handled by Anest Iwata Airbrushes Custom Micron, Hi Performance SB and Kustom TH, RG-2, W100, old guns but still the best. Already working on the next batch of cars this time on paper, stay tuned, and stay strong! #edwardmartinezart #hotrodart #hotrod #kustomkulture #kustom #houseofkolorpaint #houseofkolor #groundmetalart #artonmetal #airbrushart #airbrushartist #airbrushing #slammed #artwork #autoart #customcarart #details #mercury #instaartist #redcar #redcars #anestiwata

Much of the detail is lost by this camera on the hood intricacies, but after its clearcoated I will be showing it in a little video and hopefully in direct sunlight to reveal the pink, magenta, and purple that the paint job is hiding.
