A Jeepney is a common Filipino transport. Agnesdale from WetCanvas posted it for us to paint last weekend. I enjoyed doing this so much. I used teensy little brushes and paid close attention to the details. I did the “chrome” last, because I realized that I didn’t know how to do chrome. I think this little painting took me over 4 hours. It drew me in and kept me entertained.
My friend May is from Cebu, in the Philippines. Her husband tells me that they take army surplus jeeps and attach stuff all over them, like the Mercedes emblem. He said they are wonderfully gawdy and filled with people. You have to love that!
