Cars in motion

Full-time professional motoring and aviation artist, Keith Woodcock, has been painting cars for over 35 years. In Drawing and Painting Cars Keith shares some of his secrets with us, explaining the key components of a successful painting. The book includes sections on materials, equipment and techniques as well as specific areas of study to help make your work more convincing, such as perspective and ellipses, colour and shadows. The importance of research, preliminary work and sketches is given high priority and further chapters cover dynamics, atmosphere and emotion as well as alternative adventurous styles and the business practice, reproduction and publication of the motoring artist. Over 150 finished paintings accompany the text, with full descriptions of how each was carried out. This is an immensely inspiring as well as practical book that will fuel the creative powers of anyone interested in the motorcar in all shapes and forms.
