This is on a long 48″ canvas that is only 12″ tall. I wanted to focus on the long line I love most about this vintage vehicle. I chose to use Matisse Design Cyan for the beautiful blue color. I only changed the depth of the color with water. I did not want to show the entire vehicle in this work because I wanted the viewer to be drawn in by the color and the lines. This piece may not even resemble a car to someone who doesn’t know the style of the vintage Mustang.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. – Aristotle
