I have new Photoshop, world. Here's some shockingly lazy testrunning.
Being able to find (or make) a better car brush would've helped, I suppose, but if you screw up your eyes it looks a little like a 1949 Hudson, the car Dean Moriarty drives and then loses. It would also be easy to argue that it's the road that's more important and not the car (witness the, uh, title) so that's that.
I wish they made more books with old-fashioned covers nowadays.

My first oil painting. 2007.
Second attempt, I think. It hangs in my parents' bedroom now. Copied from a landscape book somewhere, I can't recall what the original painting is called.
I don't really use brushes for oil painting anymore, palette knives are better suited to my levels of patience and attention. And besides, the blurrier the better, I can't do details with oil very well.
