Proud Classic

This car sits not too far from where I live, so every time I saw it the temptation to do a painting grew stronger and stronger.  I did a couple of plein air studies before arriving at this studio piece.  I find the square format interesting in terms of composition.  More than half the painting is the street and most of the painted elements are on top.  But I think it works well due to the shadow of the pole leading the eye to the car.  Since painting this I have spotted more classic cars that might soon get a visit from me.
