Cadillac Longchamps B (Lalique Hood Ornament)
You don't see many hood ornaments like this phenomenal Lalique Longchamps B. I spotted her on the hood of a lovely classic Cadillac, and knew I had to paint it in the near future.
As the pandemic had paused all car shows, I was looking through my image reference library and found this Longchamps B. It was a delightful blend of photorealism and abstract background. The background was painted almost solely with my fingers and palms (my favorite way to paint backgrounds). A messy process, but one I dearly enjoy.
