GENERAL INFORMATION:
Title: Porsche Illustration
Year Created: 1989
Medium: Gouache
Surface: Watercolor Paper
Dimension: Imperial
Allow digital alterations?: Yes!

MY COMMENTS:
A blatant copy of a photograph to be presented as an illustration. Michael English and some of the Japanese guys were my heros. Not being able to afford a compressor, I used a round sable brush, accurately laying down water, then graduating the wash. I gave up painting for the computer for about 13 years after this. I think my whole approach was too tight, wanting to be accurate, but then illustration is far different to fine art.


MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
I am tempted to return to something like this, but with more creativity. Coming to think of it, the ride could be a bit lumpy on those wheels.

All crits welcome.

Many thanks.

I'm thinking about doing a Honda Shadow bike. Again I would still find the wheels the difficult bit, although my eye might be more trained nowdays.
