I am critical of this in many ways, but thought I’d post it for entertainment’s sake. Obviously I’m not a realist artist. I’ve self-taught myself over the years and go through phases where I can’t paint enough. I first learned to tole paint from instruction books in my 20’s. That evolved over the years to different styles. I went through a rock painting phase, then I went through a phase where I painted things I found in thrift stores to fix them up. Then I tried my hand at trading card paintings. Those I painted with the preference of bold colors and whimsy and used the skills I learned from tole painting. Now I’m addicted to impressionism and doing my best to learn it. It seems so simple, but it’s difficult when I’ve been painting a certain way all my life.
Anyway, here is the painting. I sort of like it but sort of don’t. My dad had so many muscle cars when I was growing up and I LOVE them. I think that’s why I don’t care for this painting – because it doesn’t do the 68 Charger justice. But it’s different and resembles a 68 Charger, lol. It looks more like a cartoon, which I was not trying to do, hahahahaha. I kept trying to fix it and after numerous hours I gave up to this result.
