Short Series of a 1969 Corvette L88

Finished up a short series of paintings for a client/owner of a 1969 Corvette L88. The first and only one of 3 imported to Canada. Two watercolours on Yupo and an oil on canvas.
"L88 Vette 1"
23.5 x17.5 inches
Watercolour and Ink
Decided to go larger than planned and highlite the badging in the composition. Went thru a bit of a metamorphisis at the planning stage and altered the background colouring along the way, but am really pleased with the outcome.

L88 Vette #2
Ink and Watercolour
16 x 12 inches
One of favourite shots from my photoshoot of the L88. Kept the same flavour and colouring as the larger sister-painting.

"L88 Vette Yellow on Yellow"
36 x 36 inches
Oil on Canvas
Again as with the Blue Cobra, the pallet knife was used alot, moreso this time with large brushes to get the myriad of yellow tones on the surface of the fibreglass... didnt want to niggle with details here... not the intent with my paintings like this... Big and Bold was the methodology here!
