1973 Dodge Coronet station wagon for today.  Slightly modified and seemingly so obscure a vehicle even I keep forgetting what it is when asked.  This one is for sale too, if you fancy it.

That looks like the bastard child of a Zodiac and a Dodge Challenger, and it's wonderful.

The Coronet is a funny looking thing, that one is probably the least popular of the lot too.  This, however, is a very popular little thing and my first pre-war car in the new portfolio.  When I first took the photograph I used as reference for this back at the Waddington show over a year ago I knew I wanted to make a picture from it some day, and here it is.  This is one of those pictures I'm happy to keep hold of and don't mind if it never sells.

Have you got a website Mr V? I reckon a url in the corner of your portfolio pictures would bring in potential punters better than an email address.

Should you be interested in commissioning a website to showcase your work, and would like to barter for artwork instead of paying for it, let me know.

@Mr Livered:  I do not have a website.  The last one I tried to maintain I really struggled to keep up properly as I'm not fantastically good with tech.  Setting up the FTP client I found particularly challenging and needed help with.  Bartering could be done if you're able to help me set something simple up, I could pay with hope, pixie dust or artwork at the moment.  Though my supplies of hope and pixie dust are almost expired.

 

@PhilA: Derwent watercolour pencils almost exclusively.  I'm hoping to give markers a try, but for the quality and range of colours I need it's pretty expensive.  Ã‚£2-3 per marker isn't so bad until you realise you need 50-70 for a full compliment of colours, took me ages to build up the full 72 colour set in pencils because of this.

That Austin Seven is good, as is the Allegro. Although (and this is intended as constructive comment) shouldn't there be more detail of the front suspension axles etc?. I know then would be shadows but not at that view of the car.
Good stuff though - I used to draw cars as a kid but not to this standard!

Point of contention is the lack of detail on the Seven picture.  The photograph shows nothing because the car is sort of back lit which means you see nothing but a blackness where you'd expect detailing.  Couldn't find another suitable reference image so I preferred to leave it blank than guess at stuff and draw it in wrong.  Personally, I quite like that it's just a void of nothingness there.

 

In other news, I've started work on a commission of a Vauxhall Ventora, gotta love a coke bottle saloon.

With all the recent activity rescuing Princess panels my working hours and energy had been knocked back a little bit but last night I did finish off this commission of a Vauxhall Ventora.

 

Original reference was a slightly fuzzy photograph taken on proper film and the colour is one of the most difficult I've had to replicate so far being not quite one thing or another.  Believe it or not, there's about 8 colours to get the bodycolour right on this car including various reds and browns, a bit of orange, some pink and even purple.

Inspiration was simply that the car was nicknamed Vennie, makes sense given it's a Ventora.  Proposed the idea to the customer and he liked it so we ran with it.

Nice! I had in mind the all conquering Ventora or something like that. Car ads would certainly be quite classy with artwork like that and latin slogans, but would be lost on a fair number of prospective customers

I have to say, whilst I generally find you work too cartoonish, the Escort looks brilliant!

Pretty much all the pictures start out looking like that Escort one.  I can work without the ink but they always end up a bit soft-focus to look at and I'm not keen on that as an approach.  I guess I'm still a bit tied to the cartoony stuff I've been doing for the past few years, it's a tough habit to break.

If it works for you.

 

My preferences are toward the realistic end of the scale. I've got Iain Faulkner prints, a Cuban street scene and my own photos on the walls here.

I have a great deal of respect for makers of Fine Art, but it's something I'm not particularly good at as much as I'd like to be.  Faulkner's work is very appealing.

Your talent exceeds mine and I spend a good chunk of my working day drawing.

 

I also have hankerings for a Barry McGlashen painting but I've missed the boat on that one.

I'm having a go at a not-inked colour piece, it's not something I do often but we'll see what happens.  Lack of confidence, more than anything really, but looking at McGlashan's work (an artist I didn't know) I feel like I should have another stab at it and see what people think.

So, this is an attempt at ink-free colouring and I have to say I hate every inch of it.  This is as far as I want to go with it, I may try and rescue it later but at the moment I'm seriously disappointed with this.

Dad really rated it too, and he's usually one of my most honest critics (much as that sometimes annoys me when he's right about a flaw).  I've put it away for now to come back to later.  One of the major irritations is the amount of dead space the scanner put into it, something I don't get so much with inked colouring, it makes it very difficult to then rescue the scan and make it look anything like the original artwork.

Nice. It also ties in because if it's not a Ventora, it's a Victor.

 

People would always ask with mine, despite it having (the wrong) "Victor" badges on the flanks behind the front wheels.

 

--Phil

 

 

Edit:  Oh, and the Saab? That image is full of win. Finish it please, even if you despise it, then file it away for a while and come back to look at it later on. There's a few bits of dark where there shouldn't be, that's all.

Plus, scanners are the most evil thing there is when it comes to artwork. Ignore its' output.
