This painting of an old, worn adjustable wrench was fairly straight forward. It was one of the faster paintings to get completed in my series of old, tool portraits. The only part that presented a challenge was the threads on the wrench’s adjustment feature. But even those were not too bad. There are only 4 threads visible and they are not extremely small, like some of the other tools I have painted.
One of my favorite parts of this painting is the hollow space in between the shadow. The circular part of the wrench that enables it to be hung created a cool looking negative space in the center of the corresponding cast shadow.
