The Alfa Man…

19 Jun

Just to update a recent commissioned painting… a portrait of a man with his brand new hot car.

Actually, this is going to be the birthday ‘gift’ to the man from his good friends. How thoughtful, huh?

So… how about if I let you take a peek to the painting’s process?

This painting is sized 20″ x 15″, done with Watercolor on Acid Free watercolor paper.

Well, I’m glad that’s out of my way now. I’m glad I could alter the background mess without much disaster. And to be honest, I love how the car turned out. It looks quite solid and bright. I hope my client will be happy with the result too :).

    Wow this painting is marvellous. Would never had known it was watercolours as it looks like acrylic. Brilliant work and am sure your client will be over the moon with joy. Happy PPF, Annette
