Ford in Brown and Gold is a 20" by 30" prismacolor pencil drawing, 1995.
I liked the limited palette occurring naturally in this scene and I exaggerated how the bright sunlight was washing out the scene in the background. To me, this created more of a contrast between the foreground reflections and figures against the abstraction of the arches in the back.
Streetrod is a 24" by 36" prismacolor pencil drawing.
I liked this young couple enjoying the classic car show at Reid Park. I found the reflection of the grass on the side of the car was similar to the flames pattern often painted onto cars and trucks.
