Illustration Friday - 'Speed'

This weeks IF theme is 'Speed'. I did this painting in uni depicting what we see out of a car window when we're rushing around. It's a bit mod and not my usual style but I like it.

this is exactly what it looks like, the blur and the blend of colour as it speeds past us, yet plays in slow cinematic memory in the mind.

beautiful. a beautiful painting.

I really like this. Your style and colors give the true sense of speed, but more than that, it is wonderful just to sit still and look at this.

thanks for your comments. Uni is what Aussie's refer to university as.

I like this! It certainly does give the feeling of the landscape whoosing by... I love the little hints of objects beneath the blur.

This is great, illustrates speed, but in an interesting, vivid way.

I like it too! It really captures what happens when you relax your focus as you look out the window of a moving vehicle. Wonderful painting!
