Eagle-eyed readers will notice the title of this post, and maybe look at my painting and think… “hold on, there is no JPS logo on the car”.
Well I made the decision to paint it without the tobacco advertising but it still has the look. In the era these were racing it was a time when certain countries weren’t allowing tobacco advertising so it’s still valid as a representation in my opinion.
As you can see from the tube on the top-right I used metallic gold paint which gives it a lovely effect on the painting against the black card.
I added a satin coat of varnish on the whole painting for protection but the car itself has a gloss layer which gives it a real feeling of depth, it’s almost 3D looking in reality.
