1970 Ford Mustang In Utah's Desert (Painting) by FastLaneIllustration 1970 Ford Mustang In Utah's Desert (Painting) by FastLaneIllustration
Here's My Latest Painting. It's a 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 driving down a desert highway near the town of Helper, Utah. The varying climates, terrain, and twisty roads with relatively little traffic makes this region a paradise to drive through for those drivers seeking a challenge. As far as details are concerned , I'm really satisfied with the way the lighting turned out, especially on the train, and the trees. The roadkilled squirrel was a nice touch too haha. The license plate is a reference to Sammy Hagar's song: 'I Can't Drive 55', which would likely be among many of the songs you'd be playing while tackling the desert roads of Utah. Anyway, all Fast Lane Design Artwork By Ryan Sardachuk. Click the link to become a fan of Fast Lane Design On Facebook: [link]

Nice car but it looks to big compared to the bridge. Looks like the car is 20 feet away from the bridge instead of 60 feet or something. Anyway! Beautiful picture:)

This is fantastic!   You have earned yourself a watcher!


Mind if I ask what type of paint you use? 

I'm planning to attempt a more realistic styled car painting like yours rather than my usual cartoon Acrylic work :)

I use a mix of different things.  I usually will do a "base coat" by filling in the basic colors with prismacolor markers.  Then I usually use goache to bring depth to those shapes, and then I use acrylic for areas where the color needs to be very bold.  And for small highlights and lines that aren't black, I use those colored sharpie water based poster markers (Especially white ones).  Sometimes I use watercolor pencils, but I haven't been using them as often lately.

Nice job on the UP and Rio Grande SD45's, impeccable for a guy that mostly draws cars

lol believe it or not as a kid I was a train nut. Sure these days i like cars more, but the passion for trains (or any kind of other transport for that matter) still shines through in the backgrounds behind the cars, because if you ask me, trains and cars go so well together.

I'm just trying to milk all the details into my paintings that are present in the desert highway environment, and in this case, roadkill happens to be one of those details :)

The roadkill is a beautiful touch XD. And I really like the lighting effects on the car itself, the only trouble I can see is that the train must be very gigantic considering the size of the road below it, but you can`t really tell unless you were looking closely (which I was ^^). All in all, it's great! I can't draw cars to save my life.
