The owner of the boat reached out to us about painting his Formula. While he was here to start working on the design he saw the American flag KitchenAid mixers we did for Macy’s and told us he wanted that on his boat. The detail on the mixers was incredible so I knew we’d have our work cut out for us to do it on larger scale, but we are always up for the challenge.
“We’ve done more detailed paintjobs, but this one was particularly challenging to get it as natural looking as possible,” Loucks said. “I think the shadowing was the most difficult part. From magentas to purples to blues, we used a variety of colors and layering to get the shadows just right. Some shadows were softer, too, because of the translucency of the flag material that allows light to pass through.”
