I had one day left to paint and it was typical nasty weather outside, so I set the Steve McQueen Desert Racer; (Light and Dark contrast). up inside the garage. I set up a single light sourse, set low, giving the Rig a classic, moody, look in Chiaroscuro.
I feel Vermeer and Rembrant would approve of the approach to painting this beast, and maybe would have wanted to take it for a ride.
