This is a really nice painting. I like the details you added of the metal flake paint and the reflections of the checker board floor on the car. I don't have the patience for an undertaking with frisket like this.

Welcome to WC! I hope you post more of your work.

Hi Kevin and welcome to both Wet Canvas and our forum!

I love the Studebaker! My Dad owned one up until I was in Jr high! I miss that old car!

I love the reflection of the floor, was this taken from a reference photo?
Like penny, I don't have the patience for frisk anymore! I admire the work of those of you that do!

Great Job!

Kevin,

Welcome to the airbrush forum. It's nice to have a neighbor from Lewiston, Id.

You did a nice job on the details in the painting. As Penny already mentioned, the checker-board floor reflection it awesome. I checked out your website; I really like the kids room.

I look forward in seeing more of your work.

Hi AlpineAirbrush!


Welcome to WC! Nice car and great reflections. The murals were cool and if I had a room like the kids' room when I was a kid I'd have never gone outside!!!! Good thing mine was boring. hehehe I got plenty of exercise. heheheheh


Great stuff!

Well, Thank you all very much for the kind words! Penny, the metal look is due to using createx auto-air for the transparent purple. Yes Sam, I did use a reference photo on this, as well as my trusty Buhl opaque projector to get the perspectives right.The resturant murals were my 1st real pay'in job, boy,leaned a lot on that one. Donna, Always good to hear a kind welcome from a neighbor, Coeur D Alene is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been, so relaxing whenever we're up there. Well Professor, it's no wonder if my boys act a little "spacey" living in a room like that eh?? Right now I'm working on the girl's room. It's a little more down to earth ( a log cabin theme with two opposing 4'x6' Trompe L'Oeil windows ) I'll show you when it's done.

Hi Kevin :)
Welcome to WetCanvas and the Airbrush forum!
I love your purple studebaker, the reflection is spectacular.
Your web site is awesome.
The parrot in the mural looks like it's flying out of the painting.
I think we should all have a 'field trip' to that restaurant :D
