I love old classic cars!  This (I believe) is a 1957 Pontiac Laurentian and I’m guessing because I go to lots of car shows and take hundreds of pictures but I don’t necessarily make note of the specific make and year.  The beauty of these oldies is that they never really go out of style, they just become rare but always loved.  I started this about a month ago and have been working on it off and on.  Surprisingly, while it looks like it’s composed of only a few colors, in fact I have a desk top full with everything from Moss Green to almost all of the warm and cool grays.  Most of the reds and oranges are warm tones with some cool added to tone things down a bit in some areas.  The moss green served as well for this purpose as it is the complement of red so in areas where the orange or red was too vibrant I just dotted in some of the green to counterbalance that.  Hope you like it so far.  I hope to get it finished soon and into the gallery unless of course it sells before it even gets framed like my last car piece.
