OK, to be honest, this ain't it! It's just the kind she had way back there. I was always somehow attracted to the front bumper - especially those torpedo projections with the dark rubber tips! Anyway, this is something I haven't done in a long time - just a detail of a car. I have a wonderfully talented friend in Amsterdam that does these paintings for a living, and I wanted to see how close I could get using AR. This is one layer - NOT Photo Manip. (I did trace the outlines, just like laying it out in the real world). This is also free hand - no stencils (One edge used on hood closing) The Sunset is my invention. The photo I took the image from was a classic car sales lot - no atmosphere.

Have I ever mentioned that I'm good at reading between the lines. "Nudge, nudge. Wink, wink. Know what I mean? Know what I mean?"

A painting with contrasts and shades that accentuate the sense of depth. Beautiful Skylar.
