“Coke Beetle” by Marion Eisenmann.
Marion Eisenmann sends along a sketch she calls “Coke Beetle,” a Volkswagen painted Coca-Cola red that was at the swap meet in Pomona last weekend. Marion originally sent it to me as a black and white, but decided to color it because it looks more like “vintage duotone offset printed illustrations, before photography took over in advertisements, yet with a touch more ‘freedom of line’ of the 21st century.”
Marion is teaching one more Atmospheric Plein Air Painting class on Nov. 3 at the Los Angeles County Arboretum, (626) 821-4623 for reservations or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Further information is on Marion’s website.
