The road less traveled – original Route 66 acrylic art



This is another painting from my ‘moments on the Mother Road’ series inspired by photos taken on a road trip across America on Route 66.

Painted using acrylic paint, I also used acrylic modelling paste on the canvas to create a rough, cracked appearance which I then painted over in acrylic paint. It worked really well for the road surface which was part of the original Texas highway 66 made up of segmented concrete which, because of the ‘joins’ in the concrete slabs makes a wonderful ‘thump ‘ka-thump, ka-thump noise as you drive over it.

This canvas measures 30 x 40 x 4.5cm. It is deep edge so doesn’t require framing. The edges are painted in an indigo/midnight blue and, as with all my artwork, it has been sprayed with a satin varnish to protect it from dust and UV light.

Postage within the UK is free and will be by Royal Mail tracked/signed for. Postage elsewhere will be by Royal Mail International signed for.

Hi, I’m Nicola McLean, an artist from the north of Ireland, currently living in the far north of Scotland with three fancy rats, two west highland terriers and one husband.

I paint whatever inspires me – nine times out of ten that will be animals of all shapes and sizes but I also love landscapes both urban and natural, all of which I re-imagine using as colourful a palette as possible.
