Unleaded - stages 1 & 2

Stage 1
Getting towards the end of these small paintings trying things out. Once I have fixed in my mind how I'm going to use what I've learned from the past couple of months I will get back to larger paintings again, indeed I have a $4000 commission to start very soon! I've hopefully been able to tweak how I go about doing things to produce work for the IX Imaginative Realism market as well as the so-called "Fine Art" market as I need to be selling in both in order to make a living.
This one is of an old abandoned petrol station somewhere in the Midwest. The first stage was "drawn" up with a small bristle brush using a mix of Burnt Sienna and Winsor Violet thinned with Liquin. 
The second stage was painted in the afternoon session just to block in some tone and used the same paint mix with a 1/2" flat brush.
