Work-in-progress BMW commission

This is a commission for my dentist....his cherished BMW. He took me for a 0-60 speed ride in an empty parking lot that scared the socks off me. FAST car! This is in exchange for two crowns. Dollar-wise a decent payment. However, for him that's about 4 hours work....for me maybe 30 hours. Oh well...I should have been a dentist. This is 18" x 21" watercolor on Arches 300#. I'm probably one-third done. Right now it kinda looks like a moonlight scene on the moon...many washes and details to go.
