A Car Story
Sir Ernie Hamilton Boyette.
I like cars but I have never done car art. So here is some below. I want to try different stuff. I like all cars and trucks and fire engines and locomotives and ships and boats, did I mention that I am still a little boy at heart? I am.
If you would like a very nice painting or rendering of your favorite auto or semi. Think about hiring me to paint you something.
If your auto is something really special I will use your funds to publish a print of your artwork. You will receive 100 prints of the artwork as well as the original painting. The prints are for you to sell or give away to family, friends or clients. I use a pencil, paint brush and work on stretched canvas. It takes me about three to ten hours of research before I start the artwork. It then takes me twenty plus hours to complete the work. I do not do it on the computer in thirty minutes.
I will redo this. This shows a color pencil approach based on a photograph of the auto. I will redo this and not go with the background reflected in the car but just paint the car Cherry Red and high-light and shade as needed. But this was a great idea. Sometimes you have to scribble before you have a Mona Lisa. Right?
I would like to comfortably add that I am a well know artist yet I do keep my prices in a range that everyone can afford.
This is a dabble painting. I am actually an illustrator. I try desperately to paint or render my subjects art realistic as possible. I must admit I am far more the financial calculator business type than an artist. I do not have that ""artsy" flare. I must add that I am not gay either but neither am I saying that all artist are gay, no, but I don't act like an artist. Personally I am at best described as an ex-union president, ex-Conan the Warrior and ex-drill sergeant. A whole lot of people like me, yet a few do not.
I like this and I don't. If you hire me to paint something for you and you do not like the finished product, I will not make you buy the work. Mind you your deposit is nonrefundable as you can well imagine.
Basic black and white sketch. This is Ok, I guess. I do not yet know what all my future clients will request.
I think this is HOT but I did it on the computer in about thirty seconds. If you really like something like this, we can do something for you and the cost is far less because I do not have so much time involved.
Just as the above, this was done on the computer but I think I really could go by this image and actually reproduce it or paint this image on canvas. I would like to try but this would take more than twenty hours to do in a two foot by four foot canvas size.
If you are interested in artwork of your car, please let me know.
