While I was painting a mural on a trailer located on a ranch near upper Ojai, California, I found this incredible historic Antique Tractor located in an Avocado Orchard in the Sespe foothills between Santa Paula and Ojai California. 

“The morning started out much like most days at my campsite on the ranch at the edge of the Los Padres National Forest, a deep cloud of fog settling into the valley below as the sun rose in the sky. So magical. The horses stood in a line like soldiers in the fog and a quiet hush came over the pasture. It was like a dream summer, camping and painting a mural on a trailer at the foothills of Santa Paula Peak and the Topa Topas.

I took break and took a walk down the road past the pasture eventually winding my towards his avocado orchard. When I came around the edge of the backside of the orchard there she was this gorgeous tractor, retired in all her rust-colored glory.  

I created a Painting in process time-lapse video watch and posted on my YouTube channel “Jules Smith Paints”  


Materials: 

PAPER: Printed and hand cut in-house on archival quality, fade resistant smooth Epson paper with a 51lb. / 192 gsm basis weight and 10.3 mil thickness.

PIGMENT: We use Epson DURABrite Ultra pigment ink which has a permanence resistance rating up to 105 years as rated by Wilhelm Imagine Research a leading authority of print permanence. For make print life display prints under glass or UV filter. Pigment inks such as DURABrite Ultra consist of pigment particles suspended in the ink. Once applied to the paper, they will not dissolve and will not stain if they become wet. 

Epson’s DURABrite Ultra pigment ink uses an exclusive Microencapsulation technology where each pigment particle is encased in a resin. A unique polymer pulls the particles apart, so they are suspended in the solution and never coagulate. The ink base then helps the DURABrite Ultra pigment particles penetrate the paper. DURABrite Ultra ink uses a specific technology to control the penetration level of the ink and keep the colorant near the surface and a special formula that creates more Vibrant & bright colored prints.  Conventional dye-based ink particles are absorbed into the fibers of plain paper and are soluble in water. Pigment inks come at a higher cost than dye inks but you can feel confident in your investment that will last for generations.
