Porsche 356 Speedster Art Print

Porsche 356 Speedster Cliff has chosen a ground level angle
to showoff the iconic shape of the famous 356 Speedster. The background, created with crayon and pastel, is reflected in the water on the ground to give the picture a three dimensional feel!
What's the print story?

James Dean, with his Porsche 356 Speedster, which he raced to first place in the Palm Springs Road Races in March 1955, just prior to filming Rebel Without a Cause.

Between traditional crayon on canson paper, and a fully airbrushed painting, done mainly with the aid of masks, is the hybrid technique I use for my pictures:- magic marker, crayon and pastels, which I reduce to powder and apply with a cotton pad, using hand held masks cut from drawing film.

Techniques similar to this were used by the great designers in the 70s and 80s. Now however, with the advent of computer painting, such hand drawings are not so common!
