acrylic on layered panel
27 x 35 inches
Jim Sweazy, 2009
This painting of an early Thunderbird has a Precisionist control of space, with an Impressionist control of color. The play of light on the red fender was created with many layers of translucent glazes of color. "Layered panel" refers to the modification to the surface of the painting. In this case, the V8 logo and the false louvers are cut from panel and then attached to the flat surface of the painting.
Thanks to The Beach Boys for the title.
