Acid Trip Chevy

Acid Trip Chevy
acrylic on unprimed canvas
32 x 40 inches
Jim Sweazy, 2000
Another old Chevrolet in a vintage wrecking yard in Maricopa, Arizona. Still quite photo-realist, but now the edges of areas of color are allowed to bleed into each other. Painted by dyeing acrylic paint into sections of raw canvas that have been wetted, giving the surface results of a fresco. All of these amazing colors are really there, the result of several paint jobs down through the years, weathered over time to expose different rainbow layers.
