Classic Corvette - Small Vintage Auto Painting SOLD

Classic Corvette
6x6 inches
acrylic on board

Another in my vintage auto series. Beautiful blue Corvette Stingray - probably 1970 or 71. It's got the egg-crate vents on the side - maybe the focus of another painting? Anyways all the chrome and reflections are proving continuously challenging. There was a whole landscape in the bumper of the Hudson! Now the question is how to decide which vehicle to paint next.......

On another note - I'm attempting some sourdough bread today. A knitting friend gave me a starter so I know I need to at least give it a try. It's been years since I've baked any bread - I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it comes out good!

Very beautiful corvette indeed! Sourdough bread, my favorite! Mail me some ;o) LOL!

There's no shortage of inspiration with classic cars. Every viewpoint is a winner! I really love cars just aren't as unique or interesting.

I love your design on all these cars. You give them a real punch while showing a recognizable detail. Really well done.

Debbie Shirley said...

Thanks, Stacy!
And the bread actually came out well! I'll have to send you some ;-)

Debbie Shirley said...

Thank you Christine!
I totally agree - both about the abundance of inspiration, and the lack of uniqueness of new cars. The newer ones really seem to lack the same lines and wonderful curves - not to mention the all awesome chrome of the older cars!

Debbie Shirley said...

Thank you Julie!
This has been a really fun series for me to do - maybe in part because my past graphic designer self really appreciates the design of the details on these vintage cars ;-)
