Sometimes, something just hits me and I think to myself:yeah, I have to paint that!Such was the case with Mellow Yellow. I saw this great looking classic hot rod parked in a parking lot. It was beautiful and so yellow. So I snapped a bunch of reference photos on my phone to work from. Perhaps one day I will revisit the idea of painting the entire vehicle, in an urban setting, with a few other vehicles or maybe a Thruxton or two. Just an idea.
Mellow Yellow is an original acrylic painting on 10 x 10 inch triple-primed, 11oz pre-stretched canvas, back-wrapped on 1-1/2 inch deep stretcher bars.
The subject matter is diverse for each of my paintings – basically, whatever strikes my fancy – yet they all have a familiar, whimsical, illustrative quality to them. My paintings have found new homes across Canada, in the United States, Germany and England.
With the 1-1/2 inch depth, the painting can hang without frames and appear to have some weight to it. Edges are painted.
