How cool can you get?? This has to be one of my favorites of yours. Its almost paying homage to the now disabled workhorses.

LOVE the pic Dan.

One Q ... aren't you worried that the untouched areas of paper will fade? I have found very few coloured papers to be lightfast.

Hi
thanks all for kind replies,
DS: the first pastel from Qualicum sold w/out a final pic
and the 2nd went into a gallery w/out a final pic,
here is a newspapers front page though

as to paper showing I will have to be more carefull about
covering the paper with a similar toned pastel.
these automotive works usually stay in the drawer as I paint them
for myself and have no commercial outlets for them.

Dan

I am so impressed with your drawing skill!!...all it takes is being a little off & the car will look like it is melting or something...yours are always right on!!
Yes of course I love this painting!... :D
Have you considered using Wallis paper & toning it the color you want as your ground? :confused: Much more archival & lightfast... :)
