Although it appears there are no eyes on this bugger, it looks like the light coming in from the upper left give him (her?) a contemplative glow.

At first glance, this guy looked a bit scary, but now that I see that "heavenly" touch he's receiving from above, it's quite uplifting!

Grimm, he's got time to think.

Liz,I tried to be a little "grittier".

I like the colors kind of patching the whole car together. The missing headlights are nice. Plus, I just like the style of this car.

You staged this one well.. lighting is very dramatic and I'm wondering if you sprayed off the paint and mopped with a paper towel.. or are those the magician's secrets? Grass is rendered realistically and the car has been given special care with the color and drawing. I believe this is a first viewing.

The light makes it look like he's center stage, which he is. I like this a lot.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks N.N., These "fat-fendered" characters are fun to paint.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks W.K., it is new. After I painted the background, for the fun of it I blotted with a roll of toilet paper- fold the small roll in half and lift with the edge. Of course it bled back in but I figured the ragged edge was fun so I left it.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Joan, I thought it was a fun little sketch. Grittier then usual.

Very moody. Nice!

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Michelle, I thought I would just let'er rip.

Oh, I do like this one!! Lots of colors to dazzle!

Early model Dodges were often overlooked for the Chevys and Fords. But they have a beauty all their own. Very nicely done.

Thanks B.J., I agree 100%
