Vintage car paintings...

Hello!

I had a career as car designer (stylist) from the 1950's through the 1970's. When we had time to do finished renderings to try to sell management on our designs, we often used guash on illustration board, with some airbrushing. Here are a few of my paintings; guash except the "skiing" one, which was acrylic. Also included are a couple of classic car paintings, in guash...Sammy

Re: Vintage car paintings...

Wonderful work John, From my observation some of your concepts certainly came to life in the 60s. Thanks for sharing them and welcome to this forum.

Mike

Re: Vintage car paintings...

Sammy, you did beautiful work 'in the day'. . .as my son would say! So glad that you took the time to introduce us to your work. Imagine these were done without the computer, too! What sizes are these beauties?

When you post in the future, please put only Watercolor paintings in this Forum. We have an Acrylic Forum that would love to see the skiing painting, I am sure.

Re: Vintage car paintings...

Thanks, all of you! Thought you might like to see professional work from the "good old days" before the digital age. I do see some of my designs in classic car shows now; like on the two seat Thunderbird, and on many Chrysler Corp. cars, including the Barracudas, which I named. This 2002 T-Bird sketch is watercolor.
