acrylic on layered panel
36 x 30 inches
Jim Sweazy, 2009
I would call this painting precisionist/impressionist, not photo-realist. The colors are applied in thin glazes, blending in the eye to become light striking a shape. I am also working with the surface, building layers of panel to enhance a feature or logo. The louvered vent screen on the fastback is a separate piece of panel, attached to the surface of the painting. The lines of screen in the openings of this piece are etched into the surface, giving a subtle texture.
