I have a very small model of a 1922 Aston Martin that I wanted to put into a painting
|1922 Aston Martin model
I just liked it and thought it's smooth, simply shape would look good against a more geometric background.
I was looking for something equally as small and came upon an old lap top that had just what I needed. Lots of small circuits and components that I could "build" a race track and town to complete the scene.
It took quite a while to paint as the acrylic green is quite transparent. I had to apply about 5-6 layers of paint to get the opaqueness that I wanted...

When dry the details were added .
Finally the shading and highlights brought it all to life.
