    The dark colours sure show the brass off.

    Thank you, Larry.

    Gray, I agree. I've tried numerous colors and shades and came to the same conclusion.

    Just a note, to no one in particular:
    I have difficulty, at times, with some drawings getting the color and shading of the car to really pop, or stand out. That is rather vague, but I don't know how else to state it. I work at altering the shading and highlights, but with some drawings, I just can't seem to make it pop, if that makes any sense.
    I believe, body design, lighting and angle of the car being drawn play a part in this, but I am unable to satisfy my own expectations of how it should look.

    If anyone KNOWS something in respect to successfully rendering a subject like an automobile in such a way as to achieve an eye-catching effect no matter what the shade or color, I would appreciate being taught.

    Master Gray, maybe you can help me...

    I think we all suffer from similar problems, Ron. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I think your car art is awesome. I've got more stuff in the didn't work pile than in the other. Sometimes if you can find a photo of a similar subject that really works and then try to understand how they achieved that effect. The lighting is so very important and that's what I have the most trouble with. Every time I draw an illustration I learn something though.
    I really look forward to seeing your car art. I think you do a fantastic job on it. I would hire you to do car illustrations any day of the week my friend.

    Ahhh Gray! You are TOO kind, but thanks. I will do as you suggest and keep studying it.
