Tipo Latino

30” X 40” oil on canvas

This is a commission for Charals Haagen, owner of this fabulous Ferrari 212 and my original painting “Obsessed”. Charals gave me free reign on this large piece. I wanted to get some purple in there to make the soft yellow of the car stand out. The car’s body was originally penned by Giovanni Michelotti and those drawings interpreted into 3-D form by Alfred Vignale’s metal craftsmen. Although I didn’t have access to the original drawings I had enough to parody his style, with long hood and squat cabin and include it as a blueprint-like background for this very original early Ferrari. Vignale called it “Tipo Latino”.
