Mellow Yellow, 2012


Kyle L. Poirier, Mellow Yellow, 2012
acrylic on canvas, 10 x 10 in.

Sometimes, something just hits me and I think to myself: “yeah, I have to paint that!”.

Such was the case with Mellow Yellow. I saw this great looking classic hotrod parked in the lot near one of the sign companies I deal with. It was beautiful… and so yellow. So I snapped a bunch of reference photos on my phone to work from.

It felt great to work on a classic car painting again, and perhaps one day I will revisit the idea of painting the entire vehicle, in an urban setting, with a few other vehicles or maybe a Thruxton or two. Something similar to a commissioned painting I did in 2010.
