Default LS1 Painting

Hey guys,
For my brother's Xmas present, I had my girlfriend's sister paint a picture for me of my SS and my brother's WS6. I sent her digital pics each of my car, my brother's, and the background (area near where we grew up), and she put it all together in the painting. I think it turned out pretty well, but let me know what you think.

very nice job, she has skill. but her composition could be a lot better. it'd be nicer if the cars were more centered in the picture and were a bigger part in it. i would have focused in on the cars alot more instead of having the background take up the whole top and center of the picture. but.... besides the composition, very nice in every other way.

Thanks, guys. Hope he likes it, too. I'm attaching the background pic and the pic of my car that she used to paint the picture - I'm not sure what I did with the pic of my brother's WS6.

Regarding the below, she did that at my request. That mountain is right next to where we grew up, so to me it was as much a part of the picture as the cars. My gf had her sister paint me a few pictures for Xmas last year, and the composition is more what you would expect. I know she has a website of some of her different paintings - I'll see if I can find it...
