A Painting For Gwen

Gwen simply loves cars! That is a statement and paragraph in itself.
I have wanted to do a painting for Gwen's room, but have long struggled with a concept that would suit her. Finally though, when Gwen's attraction to cars took root, the answer became obvious. I would paint a car.
Below is a progress of my painting. Would you believe, I began painting yesterday evening, and finished it this morning. Part of the colour scheme has been inspired by Batman: The Animated Series, which often depicts the night sky in a red colour.
Gwen saw the painting early this morning in a half finished state and knew exactly what she was looking at.
