This is the rough in for my painting. Normally I do not paint a black and white base for my paintings but I understand I can get darker darks and lighter light.
I think it worked as this has some really great darks and lights.
This is the one of my watercolors I painted years ago. Painting chrome is like painting water it is all in the reflections. I have seen a lot of car paintings and you don’t have to be a car enthusiast to want to paint them. I don’t even know what kind of car this is on as I took the picture at a car show.
I am one of those artists that can’t decide what I want to be when I mature. Once at an art fair I noticed the judge just walked in front of my booth, looked shortly then moved on. I was a bit upset as I was also demonstrating and there was an award for that. The judge dismissed me for "not having any continuity in my work". I love it all and don’t want to miss any of it. I am afraid I will not live long enough to create everything I want to. I have painted watercolor, pastel, acrylic and now oil. A range of subject matter from people to rocks and there is still something I "need" to paint.
It all started out with painting horses which is still my favorite and I so enjoy it. I then realized that my landscape was awful as the horses showed a more mature developed artist but the landscape was that of an amateur. When I started working the landscape I realized that working with colors and design and capturing the feel of a warm summer day was also enjoyable.
You might call me a jack of all trades but master of none; but like I said I am having too much fun trying to do it all.
I just checked the internet and found out that the first hood ornament is from a 1936 Ford and the second one is from a 1951 Chevrolet Impala.?
