painting a Thunderbird

Please forgive my backside.( And I look heavy in this.) I was mostly concerned that I'd have plumbers butt I didn't!
I was painting these on a regular basis,back in the early 80's and other styles too. Her I am one more time a few years ago.



Bill, I really enjoyed watching this video! Where is the painting today? I'm sure it sold. Did you use acrylic paint and what size is it? . . . . . Nora

Hi Nora! Thanks! I painted it for a photagrphy
studio in Eagen Mn. It is 6'x8'
I use acrylic house paint and a brush that most folks would throw away.
(We used to call the brush stroke the Polish airbrush, you need to spin the brush like a prop on an air plane.)
I have painted this as large as 10'x20' and they are all over the country.(One of many differnt designs, all custom)

Thanks Celeste! I would like to paint an oil painting on a grand scale, maybe someday.
