I love Savannah, one of my favorite places on earth. This painting is based on an old squad car they have parked outside of the Police Department in downtown Savannah. I loved the gloss black and the red of the siren and how the black picked up EVERY color around it.
This one took a while as well, almost 10 hours to paint. I know to some painters that is nothing, but as an alla prima painter, that is a long time. I paint standing up as well, so after a nice vacation from teaching, I have spent most of my break destroying my back! I even have one of those fatigue reducing floor covers which actually helps a great deal, even though it smells worse that my paints.
