Mazda Montage

Finally completed the Mazda Montage... The chocolate side panel was quite tricky in the end.. had to get some special pencils and then I applied a wash of acrylic paint to darken it and then after that dried, some more pencil on the top. Quite the mixed Media image in the end.

ps: the pic is a photo and the lights caught some parts at a funny angle! The scan should be way better.

Nearly there

Finally attacked the red/brown sides. walked for ages this lunchtime to the art shop to get a pencil.. caput mortuum violet! Best match I can see but its still to reddish and light. have to darken it somehow... Might be time for some water colour paint!

I KNEW that was going to be a tricksy colour!!

screen time

Hard at the RX7 to try and complete this by the weekend.
Unusual pastel colours quite hard to match but looking OK so far I think.

on the 7th day

I got into the RX7! Tricky tricky wheels but perseverance has paid off I think and they look OK.
I must admit they were acting as a bit of an artist's block for a few days but its onwards and (literally) upwards now into the bodywork colour!

mazda progress

slow for sure..  but steadily getting the smaller car done!

Very complex wheel on that RX7!!! I think it will be more of an impression of the shapes.

Mazda Commission

I was then contacted by a young lady wanting another picture of her partners mazdas. I had done one for her ages ago and she tracked me down to complete the set (as it were).
Very happy to oblige especially with these rad cars. They look super mean and are great to get stuck into.

Not much as yet (due to afore mentioned health issues occupying my mind) but the pressures on for a deadline so having at it from now on...

The Familia has started and the RX7 is below outlined.

This was the original pair!

Capri Completed

Finished this one a couple of weeks ago.
Decided to finally attempt a second Cologne Capri, but this time Paul Fahey's NZ version.
Turned out OK in the end after an intense couple of weeks.

Then I discovered a bit of a health issie with rocketing blood pressure and suddenly it was all on to bring that down with a change of diet and lots more exercise. Plus pills!! Yes Im on the meds finally and its coming under control. But it did stop drawing for a couple of weeks.

and yes I finally DID finish the SR-71 jet!
