The Art of Dan McCrary
The following was taken from his website:
"Combining a photo-realist approach to watercolor technique with a unique and adventurous sense of composition, Dan McCrary applies his vision to a wide variety of automotive subjects. The Development of reflection and shine can be played to the maximum on one piece, and then he shifts into another gear to depict in amazing detail the rust and pitted chrome of an aging derelict.Dan was born in 1949 in Raleigh, N.C. As early as age 5, he was attending races and becoming fascinated with automobiles in general. He attended East Carolina University and worked for several years as a musician before turning to the fulltime pursuit of automotive art in the early eighties. Dan's award-winning work has been widely published and can be found in numerous prominent individual and corporate collections. He now resides in Charlotte, N.C. with his wife Lynn and daughter Danielle."
