    Rainy Day Special

    Calling this one done, although that's subject to change as usual. In explanation of the title, Alfa Romeo produced special bodied versions of the Giulietta (1300cc) and Giulia (1600cc) designed by Bertone and called Sprint Speciale. These beautiful cars were built from 1959 - 1966 and are pretty rare. This particular one was spotted at Lime Rock Park race track on a misty, showery spring morning and I've been intending to do a painting of it for several years.



    Lime Rock is in a valley in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains surrounded by hills and ridges that get up to as much as 2,000 feet asl and you see some nice fog and cloud effects in the morning. There's a short video here that gives an idea of the background. http://youtu.be/lGFDcWQ5VSs

    Very cool. I look at this and wonder about the tire tread if it will hold the road in this rain. Haha. Must be a realistic painting to get me off on that road safety tangent.

    Nice textures work. Good comparison of the shiny surfaces broken up by the water drops.

    Fantastic painting !!!
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Un maravilloso enfoque del automóvil.
    Tú has logrado texturas extraordinarias en los metales y las gotas de lluvia...

    A wonderful approach to the car.
    You have achieved extraordinary textures in metals and raindrops...

    This is absolutely amazing!

    The details, the reflections…those incredible rain drops!

    I’d be very interested in watching the script playback. There’s so much here from a technique standpoint to learn from (and envy).

    I’m in complete awe.

    yes that thump is my jaw hitting the floor.. it is not often we see such hyper realism out of digital media... outside of Bert Monroy ..you are certainly up there in talent and creativity.. and the car is too cool...

    I have been watching your painting emerge step by step and boy what a great painting the final product is.

    Wow this is fantastic, the detail in the body work and the amazing chrome.
    You paint better than I photograph.
