First complete project for 2019. 8x10 Canvas depicting a 1967 Camaro SS at the 2018 Oshawa Auto Fest at Lakeview Park.
Added more detailing to the engine, grille and some reflection work.
Blocked in the car, it looks like it will develop nicely once I add details, highlights, clean it up a bit and add some subtleties to the overall tone to create some atmosphere and depth. ALso will need to soften edges, masking can create the hard effect at first which can be softened later.
Finished this one today!
Painted up a few ornaments with acrylics. I hope these will be appreciated by whoever receives one.
The exhibition is open from Friday November 23 until Sunday December 16, 2018 at the Visual Arts Centre in Bowmanville.
Blocked in a bit of the background trees. This is the rough stage for blocking in value and tone. Hopefully it will come together eventually.
Another scene from Autofest last August. This one will depict a 1969 Chevy Camaro SS with an El Camino in the background.
I am fortunate to have had Doug sign my painting and a few prints at the Toronto Sports Expo on September 22, 2018. Everything comes with a certificate of authenticity and a seal.
First of a series that I would like to do based on images from my Samsung taken at the Autofest in 2018
Chipping away at it. The details will hopefully bring it to life.
Almost have the background complete. On a piece this size, less is more.
Just began another small acrylic. We'll see how it turns out and if I like it I'd like to do a series of these based on my own shots. I took the picture at Autofest this year that this painting will be based on.
Not the happiest with it but every piece is a learning opportunity.
Fleshing it out further, trying to soften it up in places and unify the overall effect somewhat.
Not much to add here, just fleshing out the treed areas.
Another signed piece, a gouache painting (30x20) created in 2003 to commemorate Paul Tracy's Champ Car championship that year in his Players-Forsythe Lola B2/00.
An old piece that I created back when Paul Tracy was still relevant. A colored pencil rendering of him and his Penske PC-22 in which he won the 1993 Toronto Molson Indy, created in 1996. The second piece is a gouache painting (30x20) created in 2003 to commemorate his Indycar championship that year in his Players-Forsythe Lola B2/00.
Further progress. Trying to get the right balance of hard and soft edges to create a convincing portrayal. May need to get further along before passing judgement. Trying to create convincing earthy tones without looking too saturated as well.
