‘Little Red … Car’ is a watercolour and pen work inspired by a photo my dear friend clang823 took while in Hong Kong. He snapped an image of a red taxi driving down between skyscrapers and I immediately knew I needed to try to interpret it my way. So this could also have been called ‘Are you gonna go my way?’ – appealing to the Lenny Kravitz fans as opposed to the Prince fans! I don’t mind, I’m not proud. 😉
It was very challenging getting the perspectives right on the skyscrapers etc. And then when it came to the taxi, I just couldn’t size and place it properly – it was driving me nuts – so I changed it to a sports car and moved it to the right and that helped. But is it a Corvette? Or a Lamborghini? Or something else? Or maybe it’s just a confuser?
This is a follow-on work from Watchtower, Nijo-jo Castle, Kyoto – again, guided by learnings from the Alex Hillkurtz course, Architectural Sketching with Watercolor and Ink, on Domestika. So unlike most of my pen and watercolour works, this one was created lines first, then a wash, then more lines, then more washes, on an A3 sheet of watercolour paper.
There’s a border for matting, so you should be able to frame it pretty much as cropped here.
