Classic Car Painting

’39 Chevy

A while back I offered pet portraits to my friends and followers on Facebook, and became very busy painting pets. One friend of mine said his “baby” was his ’39 Chevy, not a dog or a cat and could I paint that! I took it on as my first car painting and you can see the results.
I found it a ton of fun to paint, but also a HUGE amount of detail and hard work getting it right. My favorite part to paint was the reflections in this amazing car with the perfect black paint job, which reflected everything around it.
The hardest part was, funny enough, the tire. The human eye can see symmetry extremely well and a circle or ellipse that is the tiniest fraction of a mm off, looks wrong. So a lot of care has to go into ellipses, which the tire contained 6 different ellipses and they all had to match.
I have a video timelapse of this painting on my youtube channel in the link below. Check it out. I still have to record the commentary, but at least you can see how it was painted.
Till next time!

Hello Art Lovers and Friends!

My name is Randy Robinson AKA “RR” as in RR’s Art, this website. I am an artist. I always been an artist and I spent most of my childhood drawing. Then most of my adult life making computers do what my clients wanted them to do and painting as much as I could.

 I left the computer industry and started doing what I always wanted to do full-time – create art.

I have an awesome, supportive wife, an amazing professional artist coach, and at this writing, my wife and I are rarely leaving the house because of the Coronavirus pandemic.

I love chiaroscuro painting (basically, the effect of light and shadow on objects) and that is my primary ‘style.’ You can see examples in my paintings below. My goal in my artworks is to show the beauty of the common things we take for granted and to expose the extraordinary which exists even in the most mundane objects.

I also paint animal portraits, including wildlife, dogs, cats, reptiles, cows, lions and more, with the same goal to show their beauty and the extraordinary personality of God’s creatures. Stare into their eye and see if you don’t feel their personality

Today I had my weekly meeting with my art coach and he said, “You still don’t have a blog!? Get to work on one!” So here I am.

I hope to share some of the process of creating art with all my collectors and valued friends who might be interested.

Bye for now.
