I really do like this and was expecting to see insects crawling, LOL! All I would do is to darken values a bit on the cars.

I was thinking the same! Definately darken the values on the cars, make them stand out a bit more, they look a bit ghostly.:thumbsup:

We call them 'VW Beetles' in the UK!

Oh how lovely, my mind was in an insect set so I expected to see three bugs and laughed out loud to be surprised by these three 'bugs'.

Definitely going to darken the values of the cars - I'll post a new pic when I get them finished. Thanks so much! :angel:

Yep, if nothing else, I got the element of surprise working for me! :lol: Glad I made you laugh! :wave:

Love these little "bugs". Whenever we have the granddaughters in the car they punch their Grandpa when they see a VW bug and say "Slug bug" and it's become a laughing joke...helps pass the time while traveling. If you darken them a bit, keeping in mind where your light is coming from I think this will be a WONDERFUL painting!
