It Mostly Looks the Same

Day 2 of the final for the auto painting commission. At first glance the image looks more or less like the finish of yesterday but there is a solid 7 to 8 hours of painting since the previous posted image. These paintings are initially fast to paint but slow down as you close in on detail and nuance. Cars are nearly all complex curves and can be real brain teasers in the rules of perspective. The Porsche on the left needed some shape corrections that I just couldn't see until I looked at it again today. I only have photo reference of the Corvette on the right at other angles, so I have to adapt the drawing to the needed perspective in the painting. Not so easy if you want things to look realistic.

I'm getting close but I know it will take at least another full day to complete.
