“Mick Fleetwood” Car Hood
Mick Fleetwood is a painting on a 1974 Cadillac Fleetwood car hood.
This was a part of a much larger project where a small group of students,
another faculty member, and myself each selected a car hood from
Pic-N-Pull (a local auto junk yard). We each painted our hoods in different
styles and themes. My painting included aluminum foil adhered to the
“wing” sides of the hood creating a spider web texture, brush painted and
then hard roll painting of the highlights. The main design was taped in first
and then sponge painted and finally details drawn. The entire painting is
coated with a clear coat of water-based polycrylic.
