    A commission of my friends Sons car, never painted a car before!
    So far all paints straight from the bottle, used black and blue violet for most of what you can see, except for the sky which was blue and orange with some violet 141E8C9B-815B-4AF3-AB73-C24501BC6441.jpeg

    Taking on commissions is great - not because of the money, but because they often push us into fields we wouldn’t normally do.

    Agreed, I now have some powerful software to make average references look almost perfect!

    Great start MacD not your usual type of pic but as we know, the same rules apply to painting it. Time limits are my nemesis. I don't cope well when on a time limit. Been painting my mate on his race bike for 5 years.. got to finish it very soon.

    I’m looking forward to seeing a different kind of subject from you Mac. You’ll no doubt do an amazing job, and it’ll be cool to see it come together. Please take lots of photos Dude.

    mixed up some buffered paint so I can use the opaque smoothness qualities to my advantage, this also allows for my guns not working well and my lack of skill when it comes micro lines!
    Black with blue and blue violet and a few drops of white, toward the end I just added white to the mix in my cup for the soft shadow areas F8926F28-791A-4793-9FBA-78901114AA4A.jpeg

    Bit more done tonight, got a few extra days now so I can build it up further! Used the opaque illustration colours for the city scape, some erasing too, used a blue/orange for the tiny over the car, made a start on the wheels, using original mix. I must say the opaques are excellent at being vibrant! BF200960-066E-4F1C-886C-EB445E5FD1E8.jpeg

    Very nice work on this one and it is nice to see you break away from portraits :D Love the look of the wheels.
