Prismacolor Ferrari F430 rear by stevebrandon Prismacolor Ferrari F430 rear by stevebrandon
This is a Prismacolor coloured pencil drawing, drawn on 9 inch by 12 inch sketchbook paper, based on a photo I took in May 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 an oil pastel drawing of the front and side of the car at a dutch angle. 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 early September), 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 this particular photo is that I like the background detail of two businesses I see nearly every day.

My next few drawings won't be of this F430, but, just from the amount of good shots I have of this car, I'm pretty confident that I shall draw it (or even paint it) again at some point in the not-too-distant future.
