This is the first one Norm - a friend owns both cars and wanted them against a local backdrop that was important to him. I took three separate images and comp’d them together, think it’s working ok so far.
I do like your work wheelsoncanvas. I know you have mentioned materials earlier in the thread but do you use acrylic? My wife has bought a load and is currently experimenting landscapes with them.
I have been doing some more sign writing. The mechanic I use has a lovely moggy van that has been professionally sign written. Our car went in for new suspension legs and while looking at the moggy I mentioned the ford model A box that I had given a makeover and showed him a pic. He then commissioned me to copy the van writing on a board to hang on his gate. I've nearly finished, just about to frame it with architrave and pinstripe detail around the perimeter of the board and it's done. My first kind of proper attempt at sign writing, and put next to the van I'm sure it will look 2nd rate, but in isolation I'm happy with it.
well, I've not done much car artwork lately but I did a few of these drawings on brown envelopes, basically because I had a bunch of envelopes I didn't really need and rather than just recycle them I thought I may as well draw something.

1968 Plymouth Fury I'm working on and I'm stumped on wheel choice. Colouring is just to give me a rough idea of what's where, and the inking is at the very basic tidying stage at the moment. I want a nice clean resto-mod look so I know I want to avoid bare steels and very showy alloys, I want something that's probably period appropriate and close to the stock steel size. Haven't seen any wheel trims I like either, though that would be an option.
I'd welcome your suggestions on what wheels I should go with.
