"Flaming Yellow Moon"

This hot rod was a challenge because of the large yellow area, yellow being particularly sensitive to contamination by other colors and creating different shades is more difficult than most other colors. Getting ovals to look right is also a challenge. Using templates or projecting a photo makes it a lot easier but besides taking a little life out of the image I feel like I'm not interpreting the information as much as reproducing a picture so I just eyeball everything. 28" by 32" acrylic on canvas.
