“1956 Oldsmobile 88″ – 2’x4′, mixed media on 3/4” canvas. 2015. Unframed.

You can see that I delighted in the chaotic chrome reflections in this piece. I painted this by turning it round throughout the entire creation. Painting upside-down helped me to not be distracted by the complexity of the reflections, and simply concentrate on shape and direction. This one was a lot of fun.

Colors used: Dioxazine Purple, Lilac, Lime Green, Ultramarine/Cobalt/Cerulean Blue, Hookers Green, Burnt and Raw Sienna, Burnt Umber, Naples Yellow, Paynes Grey, Titanium/Unbleached White.
