    This weekend I did a project that has been on my to do list for quite some time. It is a GMC safari. I painted this car matt black last year. In doing so, I explained to the owner my idea of how good an airbrush would look on the rear doors. Two weeks ago he came to me and asked when I could do the airbrush and how it should look like. I made two designs for him and he chose the Statue of Liberty skyline in New York.
    I had the designs printed in a print shop. From this I cut the skyline stencils and masks. I sprayed the rest of the picture freehand. I only worked with black and white color and used my new Iwata Eclipse and my old evolution. Pure working time was 10 hours. The painting was painted matt again.

    Very good composition for the car brand and execution of the art work itself! Cool Michael!:thumbsup:
    I think this kind of works appear in the magazines.

    Thank you for your kind words! It's something special to paint on a car, but in this case is the overall impression the most important thing.
    He is a fan of American cars. One should not lose oneself in too many details. He is very satisfied and so are I, because everything worked as planned. The only unfamiliar thing for me was painting with white on a black car.:D

    Outstanding job Micha, its nice to see you painting on a vehicle, it doesn't look like it gave you to many problems.

    Great work @Micha der Wolf it looks excellent. Doesn't look like you were unfamiliar painting the white on black. Your client should be well pleased.

    Thank you girls and boys! This was my biggest project so far and that on a car. So a big premiere! But I'm happy about the result. Definitely a lot of experience!
