Two cars

Two cars...Only for the show.
They serve their purpose well in adding a quirky touch to a corner in the house somewhere...on a pile of antique books, under a cloche, on a dinner table, on a stack of DVD's..I bought the chevy( right?)when we lived in South Carolina, at a stop next to the highway.
The "coccinelle" is a lovely reminder of my own I once dashed around in.
Watercolor and ink on Arches HP paper.

These are both great paintings. I love the quirky things you find to paint, and the colours you choose to use. The little green car is really cute - I'd love one of those!

And the doors open too. Wow!
Great illustrations on the theme, Ronell! And, another glimpse to your life or in this case, your house :)

I love both these compositions. They are exquisite!

Lindsay said...

Very cute cars. Love the shading on them.

Robyn said...

Lovely whimsical still lifes, Ronell. There seem to be quite a few women painting cars lately. It must be evolution :)

So detailed, I love the the colors, the moveing parts, and the fact that you actually own miniature cars, how cool.

I've never noticed how little pen you use to make your wonderful sketches until I looked at the VW Bug large, and I don't know why it facinates me so much but it's amazing and makes me love your paintings even more. Great work on both these sketches. LOVE the colors - especially those spots on the cds.

Such a smart way to illustrate cars! I love the fact that you like to have quirky touches around your house. Me too!

Great cars!!! That top one is a '56 Chevy I think. They both are so neat and what a great subject!

Hi Ronell - your site is SO COOL- it is so accessible and you can see changes all the time - you must be one hard-working chick!! Thanks for the comment on my "portrait" - it is nice to get some recognition at last after so many years of trying - did you ever have anything to do with the SASA while you were in Stellies - I find them to be quite a "cliquey" bunch!! Keep in touch, hey ou skat!
