Very nice so far Gemini. Your tones are rich and deep. Looking forward to seeing more.

Wow!. What a beauty. Makes me want to restore it to it's original shine. Nice nuances of color! Please post a finish when you are done.

Good to see you back gem :) this is looking terrific -now don't leave it abandoned will you -want to see the finish. Beautiful colours coming out here and your drawing is spot on , I liked the look of this one but the thought of drawing it seemed too much for my hopeless perspective skills

Gem - love the rich deep colours - looking forward to seeing it finished.

Lovely!!! I like the textures building up here, hope you finish this one.

Wow, this one looks like a winner already. Your loose application of paint has captured the age and character of that old car perfectly.

The car's got a lovely old abandoned rusty feel to it already. Your rich colours are great.

Such good color and the drawings is excellent. Do you use colored pencils or watercolor pencils?

I really like what you are doing with your version of this car....will be watching for the end result.

I liked this old car, too(saved it for later)

Guess I'm the wierd one- I LOVE the artistic feel at the stage it's at now, and would be happy even if it were to be stopped at this point. The colours are so beautiful, and the lines tell the rest of the story. :clap: :clap:

Great job on the car! The rust looks really well done & the car looks like IT is looking of in the distance. Maybe waiting for it's lost owner? :clap: ~Nicole

Well done - love the rust effects - really have captured the car - poor old thing - gone but evidently not forgotten.


06-15-2004, 03:44 AM
Pat , thank you very much for your comments :)
hopefully some nice person will paint him up for real someday :D

Nicole, Thanks, Yeah it does look abit in the distance wasnt sure if I wanted to but i could put some more detail inthe back and fix the sky, thank you very much for your comments :)

ps. I wasn't sure how to go about posting a picture after , when you start one and then add it later after you have finnished it., How is it done as to not be confusing ?I dont think i did this the right way. Any help on this greatly appreciated, thanks gem :)

That is one solid gorgeous rusting car. Very well done. :clap: Feels like I could run my hands over it.

As far as posting your final, most people do it in the original thread because many people continue to check the updates throughout the week. Some start a seperate thread but then anyone new misses the process. Be patient. You will get more responses. It's a great piece.

Love the way you've painted the rusty wreck!
I also like the ground re-claiming it's metal - Nature will win! :D

I love the old rusty! He is so lush with color.
I would like to not see that tiny building in the background. It seriously takes away from the forground of the car and shadows. My two cents.
