A coloured pencil drawing of the rear of a Ferrari F430 Berlinetta. by 


This is a Prismacolor coloured pencil drawing, drawn on 9 inch by 12 inch sketchbook paper, based on <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/steve-brandon/2498... photo I took in May</a> of the tail end of a Ferrari F430 parked in the parking lot of the Merivale Market plaza in the Ottawa suburb of Nepean, with New Look Eyewear and Nando’s Flame-Grilled Chicken in the background.

This is the second drawing that I’ve done of this exact car, with the first one being <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/steve-brandon/2722... oil pastel drawing of the front and side of the car at a dutch angle</a>. What can I say? I really like drawing the Ferrari F430, and the photos I took of this particular car in May (and then, again, in <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/steve-brandon/2828... September</a>), are the best photos I’ve taken of the F430, especially the May photos since the bright sunlight really brought out the Ferrari red.

One thing I did differently this time is that I applied multiple even layers of base colour: pink, vermilion, and then crimson, before I even started local shading, in order to make the Ferrari red really stand out, and using a light colour as the bottom base colour made it much easier for me to add white highlights, to make this well-polished and well-waxed Ferrari really shine. Another reason I chose to illustrate <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/steve-brandon/2498... particular photo</a> is that I like the background detail of two businesses I see nearly every day.
