Day on the salt by JThomastheartist13 Day on the salt by JThomastheartist13
I love this painting very much
I created the weathered and aged affect on the car with the flaking and fading paint the rust on the edges of panels. The long endless shadow
It represents the early days of Hot Rods and Speed Shops, circa 1940-1950 or with the revival of Traditional rods this could represent the present day
11x14 oil on canvas panel
Signed
Limited Edition Prints of 275 signed and numbered will be printed on Giclee prints

This is way cool! I like the composition with the car being center right and the shadow going off to the left. This does look like it could be one of those old salt racers. I like the rhythm of the value changes in this. And once again, a whole lot of painting at only 8X10! It's a very good piece of work! :clap:

You're welcome! Did not notice the size there. I know that i do not know enough about giclee prints. I have had some done from one place, and they did not do a good job on the last one. The scan they took of it wiped out a lot of the lighter value changes...especially the ones on the hood [link] . If you look at this link you will see a fairly good painting turned a lot worse by lack of value changes in the body and a loss of lighter ones in the asphalt pavement. So i sure do suggest shopping around and finding one that you can count on. Sorry...can't be more helpful than that. :wave:
