New Ferrari 458 Italia

Hello Ferrari Life,

Name is Aaron, lifetime Ferrari and F1 fan. For now, no Ferrari for me, but enjoy the Bimmers I do have... Wanted to share my newest Ferrari painting with fellow fans of what is possibly the most beautiful Ferrari of all time...

Time Lapse - Ferrari 458 Italia Oil Painting by Aaron Acker, music by Deadmou5 - YouTube

Hope you all enjoy.

Thank you, There is about 20 hours of actual painting, but w/ setting up for time lapse video, different angles, dry time between layers, or glaze layers, it took about a week and a half of actual time... For commissioned work, where I'm not doing the video work just about a week, though there has been a few paintings that took me a month or more to paint. Just depends.

Impressive and very nice.

As for me, my artistic qualities are equal to that of a baby so I'm always envious of those who can create something from a blank canvass.

Thanks for sharing.

Welcome to Ferrari Life

I have to ask - what does one of these works run?

Thank You for sharing.

Here is the new Ferrari F1 painting of Fernando Alonso.



paint is still a bit wet, so not the greatest quality photo, but will work.

Thanks, I'm trying to sell both the Ferrari 458 painting, and the new F1 painting so that I can move to Denver, I live in a small town, and not a lot of gallery / art opportunities here :/ Plus there is a nice Ferrari dealership in Denver, easier to get reference photos if people need / want their own cars painted ?
