Cobra in Blue

Left Ferrari for a week or so (yes, i know... the world kept spinning and the space-time continuum didnt implode) in order to tackle 2 or 3 Cobra paintings. One major piece (see above) and 2 smaller watercolours. I have been approached to supply some artwork for the Canadian International Auto Show - part of a presentation for Carrol Shelby. Hence... the Cobra paintings.
This one is a 36x36 oil on canvas in a very painterly style, the car done mostly with a pallet knife. Similar to a P4 painting i did a couple years ago. Exciting style to do, as it forces you to concentrate on the major forms of the subject... distilling it down to its most recognizable features and shapes.
