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
