Return to Latest Blog



Good Morning! It is Monday and just got home from the gym so feeling good and energized. Wanted to share this on my blog this week since I finished it after about 50 hrs of work start to finish.

 Basis for this car was the weekly car rally at Burger King in Lakeland. I had done a a watercolor of this car originally but I wanted to do it in black and white also. Ridge Art is having a show for only black and white and I thought this would be a great candidate, 

 I started out with a black sheet of 100%cotton  paper and the dimensions of 24x30 but it is a bit smaller. I then transferred the photo to paper and use my Prismacolor pencils, in cool and warm gray's and whites and blacks. I did use some Indian Ink but only for the rain drops on the hood and fenders. Overall I think this is a great piece and worthy of the show in Winter Haven next month, 

 While we are speaking of shows The Lakeland Art Guild is currently running a juried Show at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland Florida. This show will run from October to Early January 2018. If you have a opportiunity stop by. I have two paintings on display and one was fortunate to receive 2nd place for this show. 

 Bout it for this blog but now I have to figure what to paint next. That can be hard at times. Enjopy your week and have a blessed day. See ya!
