I see the thread is still up so I'll post a WIP I just started tonight.
This is a small "study" in acrylic, trying to work on my style. I'm about an hour into this one, probably a couple hours to go. I'm trying to learn to use thick paint yet still control it and be a little more "free" with color for an impressionist result. I love impressionist style paintings, my motto is "A painting should look like a painting." The subject is one of my favorite local hot rods. If this thread stays up for an extra day or two like it has the past couple weekends hopefully I'll be able to post it finished, if not........until next Friday.
Thanks for posting all your awesome work everybody!
Another awesome book, congratulations Dan!
I like the work everyone has sent in Good Job to all. Thanks for letting me show off my idea what I think is cool.. Beth
Roses red and black 37 from Queensland as inspiration?
One word -STUNNING!
Thank you for the kind comments ......much appreciated.
Sorry for te impending photo BBQ <- auto correct to funny haha, meant bomb, but I'm super stoked on theses!
Had the art opening last night showing these 15 paintings and it went very well.
They are all 12x24 acrylic and then I have 10x20 prints of them all on archive grade paper that feels great in hand.
I'll be spammy for a minute and say the remaining unsold paintings are $300 and the prints are $50 for one and $80 for two.
Ok enough already let's see hotrods!
And the rest!
Sorry for multiples the mobile app and fat thumbs :S
Gary C - your creativity never ceases to amaze me.
Bob - the bad ass on the bike is super well done.
Cruisin' - all home runs!
Beebing - that purple Dodge gasser really jumps off the screen.
kenmo - great shots from the Atlantic Nationals. I especially like that top in motion shot of the 1951 Chevy.
31hotrodsedan man - I love both of those Caddy pictures.
LowCab - awesome painting of that flathead.
Great hood ornament shots David.
Mark (jigger) the Oldsillac 88 Rocket rocks!
Steve (spoggie) I love the black light look style.
Last but not least - super cool paintings Tim! Everyone - I saw Tim's prints and originals in the suffocating heat of last week's KKOA Leadsled Spectacular and they were truly sensational.
Thanks a lot for your positive comments on my new book Bob, Cory (Hookedtrout) and Phillippe (frogz)
Thank you Dan ......I appreciate it.
Cheers Dan! The F.A.S is a great platform to see such amazing art and also helps me in particular try and improve. Art has no boundaries!
Thanks Dan, congrats on the book! We really need to talk… soon… Cheers all!
All you guys dipping brushes in the wet media and dabbling it on paper and canvas and all you shutter-bugs
have made this week very special… Thanks!
Thanks for the comments dan! Was great seeing you in the sauna that was Salina. That beer was a life saver haha.
Great show this week so far, really digging that blown flathead painting and as always jiggers stuff gets me going.
Working on some new stuff already and can't wait to see where they all
Go and to show you all.
Love these! Very Nice!
Thanks Tim… You guys have no idea how close I was to heading down to Salina… Next year, Lord willing, it is a MUST! As it is, I may be at some show in K.C. at the end of Agust. May set up my art with a fabricator I'm working with from Hastings, NE. "Cusom Rides" is the company and I will be helping him with conceptial art… These loose Bettle sketches are early examples...
