Underpainting stage; much more to do!  No reference photo except for the car.  How tough will this project be?!  ???

 :thankyou: DENNIS & NOLAN for your words of wisdom.  I placed the car in a clearing of a wooded area where abandoned cars are often dumped off.  There’s not much more I want to do with this composition which arose from my head.  There were too many trees in the background, looked boring so I covered some of them up and put in the distant mountain. Well, let me know if you see something I could improve on.  Thanks again. ~Liz

Nothing wrong with the background. It has that faraway abandoned feeling.  O0

Don't let the background take over from the subject, a real loose rendering of the trees will work best. You might consider filling the page with the car too?
Good start

 :thankyou: PATRICIA, DENNIS, & BRIAN for your comments!


HI, BRIAN!  :)
I was thinking about you and your beautiful work with cycles and all models of cars!  I thought of my old wheels that you drew for me- the army jeep and my Jag.  I hate to think of them ending their lives in a junk heap, salvaged for parts and scrap metal, or finding a forest resting place for their graveyard. . .

Nice rusty effect. I also like that the trees look old with the moss growing on them :clap: :clap: :clap:

 :( It is sad thinking about those old mechanical friends ending up ??????   Then all I do is remember having to push that old ´49 half ton up the hill and I really don´t worry over it!   :2funny:
Cheers, Val
