’47 Mercury


Uncle Ron 11x 14, oil on canvas, NFS

This is a quick, one day color study I did for a larger portrait commission that I’m going to be working on. I like how the study turned out, and I think it almost stands well on its own as a finished painting. I would like to see more detail, though, and I’m going to change the angle of the pickup to get more of the grille in if I can find a good reference photo of a 47 mercury pickup.
Anybody out there have one? If you do, send it to me!
