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!
