Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.308

Hello again painting fans.

This week I'll be continuing with the painting of the Ferrari F430. I will be using the photo seen directly below.

I'm using my usual acrylic paints on a 5x7 canvas.

When last seen, the painting appeared as it does in the photo directly below.

Since that time, I have continued to work on the painting.

This week it's all about the details. Front and center is my rendition of the NYS license plate seen in the photo. I toyed with the idea of putting my initials there, something I did in a painting many years ago. In the end I decided to stay true to the photo. Above the plate is the famous prancing stallion. To the left, the wheels/rims have been completed. These are a fashionable split 5 spoke design. Below, the rear tire now has some tread for gripping the road. To the upper left, the side view mirror sprouts from the fender. Also revised is the lower panel running between the wheels.

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.

I only now noticed, in the photo, that the taillights protrude from the rear of the car. It looks like you've captured that detail too.

Good work on the plate, although I still think you should have used BORAN2. You might want to work on the stallion a little more though — it looks more like… well, a lamb at this point. :-D

What else do you have left to work on?

Thanks, Far! I've also attempted to capture the shadow at the bottom of each taillight nacelle. Hopefully that comes through.

I actually did put my last name in a another car painting some years ago. I considered doing it here but went for authenticity instead.

As to the stallion, he is so tiny that I don't think much more can be done for him. ;-)
