Title: Plane Versus Car
Artist: Gregory Cross
Date Painted: January 21, 2020.
Description: This is an original monochromatic watercolor painting based on an archived, historical black and white photograph. The painting shows the first ever plane versus car race. Charles Hamilton, flying a Curtis Flyer biplane, raced an automobile in Galveston, Texas in 1911. This painting is one of the flying machine series of monochromatic watercolors.
Materials: It was painted with Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors on a 9 inch x 12 inch sheet of Arches 140 lb, cold press, watercolor paper.
Notes: The painting is signed G Cross on the front, and has the artist's full signature, painting number, and the date it was painted on the back. Please understand colors may vary between the actual painting and the digital image on your screen due to my digital camera's results, eBay's filters, and your monitor's settings.
Artist note: My artwork has been liked by Danny Trejo, the movie and voice actor; by the movie actress Holly Horner; by the famous Japanese artist and teacher Harumichi Shibasaki; the famous artist and art teacher Malcolm Dewey; by the Belgian rock band Blackbriar; the Hungarian rock band Metalwings; and by YouTube personalty and artist Liron Yanconsky.
Gregory Cross has had paintings on exhibit at the San Antonio Public Library, Bihl Haus Art Gallery, and now in a second annual exhibit at the Elvira Cisneros Senior Center. He also was one of the artists who painted the 60 foot x 6 foot San Antonio Tricentennial Mural. Art critics have discribed his work as surrealistic but with the charm of the everyday; full of visual surprises with anti-gravity, wittiness, and irony. His paintings have sold in many countries.
