The Automotive Art of Lawrence Gardinier

The other day, I featured the automotive art of Ed Tillrock.

Today, I'd like to show you the work of another artist we met at the 2012 Detroit Autorama, Lawrence Gardinier.  His stuff is exquisite.  He works in acrylics, and I got to talk to him about his technique.  He uses very small brushes, and magnifying lenses to see what he is doing.  He also mentioned that he is, like myself, self-taught.

The results are spectacular!  It is not often that I see a painter's work and think:  "Wow, I wish I had painted that!"  But Larry's work does that to me.  Well done, sir!
