A little bit of Italy

The topic that every painter has to paint once in a lifetime. The Italian ‘Feeling of Life’. Passion and romance, fashion and food and cars.
I painted this piece after watching the movie Under the Tuscan Sun. That time I had a really cool Mazda MX-5 Roadster and I belonged to a vintage car club. I drew a lot of cars during this period of my life. Perhaps this one was of the best.
I used my greatest yellow to paint the whites. Lots of working hours, slow micro brushstrokes.
