Tick Tock Diner - Clifton, New Jersey


I painted all the neon tubing freehand.  If you compare the 2 jpegs, there is no initial underdrawing done on the neon whatsoever.  I don't want to sound cocky, but that amazes me. How am I able to do that without screwing up?  

I hope that I will have this skill for many years to come.  

I think I'm going to darken the sky at the top and let it get gradually lighter towards the bottom, thus creating an overhanging arch of sky framing the sign.

LOL! Mark, Indeed how were you able to do that freehand. I couldn't do it for sure.
We just got back from albuquerque/santa fe. I took pics of lots of great old mom and pop motel signs along old route 66 i hope to paint.
