Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.301

Hello again painting fans.

This week I'll be starting an entirely new painting. I will be using the photo seen directly below.

No doubt that regular readers will be a bit surprised by my subject matter. I've actually been carrying around this photo of a Ferrari F430 for some time. I like this shot both as a fan of fine cars and as a painter. It presents the vehicle in an interesting way and provides challenging forms and reflections. I'm looking forward to painting the blue highlights onto the black body color. And I needed to get away from all those Cape May houses for just a bit. (But not for good, of course!)

This one will be painted on a smallish 5x7 canvas using my usual acrylic paints

I began by painting a rough outline of the Ferrari in blue. Once again, placement on the canvas is crucial. This is actually my second attempt, the first one having been done on an inadequate square canvas.

The current state of the painting is seen in the photo directly below.

That's about it for now. Next week I'll have more progress to show you. See you then. As always, feel free to add photos of your own work in the comments section below.

Earlier paintings in this series can be seen here.

That your car? Must be nice. :-P

Just kidding!

I enjoyed your early car painting sequences. Looking forward to seeing how this one turns out.

Thanks Far! No, not my car. My Ferrari is red. ;-)
