Cars and Trucks

My watercolor paintings of cars and trucks are created from real cars that I have seen and photographed, usually at Lime Rock Racing Park, sometimes at car shows.  I then create landscapes to embrace the car into a story that harmonizes with the persona of the car. The paintings are done use the highest grade professional watercolor paints on heavy acid-free cotton for lasting results.

I was the Resident Artist at Lime Rock Racing Park, the most beautiful raceway of the North East, where I painted at all the main events in 2015.  My portraits of race car drivers and race cars was exhibited during Lime Rock’s Historic Car Event and Ferrari Event in 2016, for 2 months in the Drivers’ and Owners’ Lounge.  See my “People” page for the portraits.

13 of my car paintings were shown at the Riverwind Gallery in Beacon, NY, in June 2017.  A new show of racing cars at Riverwind Gallery will be held in June 2018.  They have also been featured in 4 other galleries.

I welcome painting your own beloved car and creating a scene to embrace the car in a harmonious way.  Please feel free to contact me about commissions of car paintings and driver portraits;  also for prices of the cars below that are noted as “Available”. Email me at sandra@sandracointreau.com
