On the Easel - Vintage Camera 3

Oil on linen mounted on panel, 6" x 6" - Still drying

This is the third camera from the vintage cameras I inherited from my grandfather. I really loved working on this camera even more than the others because the front art deco panel is pretty scratched up and the edges of the camera fairly worn. I wasn't sure how I was going to convincingly paint these aspects of the camera until I got up to that point, but I've been very surprised to learn how much I like painting worn, vintage objects.
