View Full Version : WIP 1971 Watkins Glen 6 Hour

This is a new WIP in Artrage based on photos that I took at the 1971 6 Hours endurance race at Watkins Glen, NY. I'm trying to deal with this as if working in gouache.

Nice work! I think you succeeded with the matte look of gouache.
Nice. I can feel the movement of the cars.

Thanks LavenderFrost, laika, arl, Lucy-Foote, b'anna and jow104! Hopefully I'll give real gouache a go again someday, but for now, it's a lot more convenient to paint digitally. I have to rely on a bit of trickery in the background to give a feeling of motion in the painting. In reality, these cars were accelerating through 120-130 mph at this point on the course.
I've got most of the work done on the cars and have laid in the Armco barriers. Now it's time to add some spectators.
