Street Cars

Finally finished this commission piece after starting it sometime in November, (feels like June...ha). The reference photo taken by the soon to be recipient, was shot during the afternoon on a cloudy day. I cropped the photo, and then found the low light somewhat uninspiring, so in the interest of driving myself crazy, the lighting was changed to evening. Not the easiest task to invent light and shadows, at least for me, but what the heck, whatever it takes to try and create something pleasing to the eye. It was mucho frustrating and then a lot of fun at the same time. I am happy with the result, and I truly hope that Mrs. E. is as well.
