Of anything you have done lately, this is by far my fave. Absolutely fantastic .. darks are dark without being dark dark with the play of green and red working to max.

And Paul, if you are finished with my car please return it. :D

This is fantastic Paul. I love what you have been doing! These remind me a bit of an old type of photo, I can't remember the process but they had this really unique soft look. Very pleasing. Of course your paintings are better than any photo. They really create a nice mood.

Very exciting Saab!! :cool: Great greens...as for the red, perhaps a tad in that distant bush at the house's edge? Does look like an old photo.

the curves of the car fit nicely next to the curves in the building. Vintage excellence.

Agree.. Very nice feeling to the painting and nostalgic too. I dont think it needs more colour at all I think the palette works very well

this is beautiful. the lighting effect is great..i could keep looking at this. there's nothing dull about it. its like a foggy dream or a memory of far away travels (the whole scene makes me think of india, or vietnam..) see what you've done with an image of a car??

My thoughts when the image loaded! :) I really love the palette here and would not change a thing!

The colours are beautifully subtle, with the orange providing a striking contrast.

Certainly one of my favourites of yours too. Perfect foliage and their shadows ! If you repeat the red of the turning light it would make it less interesting I think and certainly no red geranium :p (you'd have to sell it cheaper ... )

great powder painting
no clue how you do that
the Saab.... well something to save up for
In the Czech republic where we were posted before Belgium, I fell in love with the Tatra, model comparable to this Saab, only way bigger, in the olden days the communist bobo's were driving that car. Only sensible to buy an old one like that if there is some technical expertise in you........so, helas

To be honest, folks, I took the photo of this with the ptg on the floor, unframed, so I was a little shakey. It looks a bit softer than it is; I should wait till framed before photographing.
Wayne, you dont really have a car like this, do you?
Melanie, are you wanting to look at details blown up? By the way, I like "Lazy Porch."
I was a little inspired by Randall Sexton, CA painter known for scenes like these.
Thanks, everyone, for comments.
