The Z11, WIP.

Hello, I am new to this section, I've posted on WC in the drawing & sketching section. This is an oil painting I've just started, 24"x20". I'm referencing a photo I took of a rare American musclecar. It's one of 3 ever made, a 1962 Chevy Biscayne Z11. It's my Brother-in-law's car. It has a "mystery motor" 409ci making over 530 Horsepower. It's had a full frame-off restoration by Boyd Coddington, finished in honduras maroon.
This is my layout, I use a grid to help with proportions.

This is my pallet, mainly red, blue, yellow, and some brown, white, and impasto.

This is after a few hours of painting. I haven't painted in 6 months, so I'm still knocking some rust off...

Lookin' good. I'm doing a similar painting, a '53 (I think) Buick 8, from a very similar perspective, so I'm interested to see your progression.

Re: The Z11, WIP.

Foam plates work much better then paper plates as palettes .....

Re: The Z11, WIP.

Thanks Judy, Alan, painter4life, freesail, Eveline. I use the heavy duty paper plates, they have a laminate and nice white background for color comparison.

A little more detail done. I wish I had more time to spend.
