This is a painting of my son, DJ’s Chevy Blazer. I painted this for his grandmother who wanted to give it to him for Christmas. His aunt took the photo, which is great. I really enjoyed this painting. See how I created this painting in the Adventure to Art article Creating DJ’s Truck.
With my new acrylic paints and new brushes I set out to give them a try. Two unwanted kitchen chairs in front of the ’65 Ford was my subject. I sketched it out and got the basic composition down. After about one an hour and a half I took a photo with my phone and brought everything into the studio. Bringing the image up on the computer, I proceeded to add detail, focusing on the head light and the left chair. I think I like my new acrylics.

This is an oil painting done with a pallet knife which allows for some pretty gnarly effects.
