For many of us, taking a modified C2 Corvette Sting Ray to a palm tree-laden beach to surf some waves is merely a dream. That’s probably why a popular rendering artist on Instagram used his talents to create this scene digitally, crafting a dream-like illustration that captures the magic of both a vintage Chevy and the Hawaiian coast.
The artist responsible for this illustration created it for his wife, who is a fan of the iconic C2 Corvette and also has dreams of one day taking a Hawaiian beach vacation. The car in question is based on a post-1963 C2 Corvette Sting Ray, which has been lowered and fitted with a set of fictional wide steel wheels wrapped in sticky performance rubber. A luggage rack with a surfboard attached to it provides the driver with a convenient way to transport their surfboard to and from the beach, echoing the ski rack-shod Porsche 911s that were popularized throughout the 1950s and 1960s. The surfboard also matches the car, featuring red Hawaiian flower motifs splayed across a glossy light treated wood background.

The background of this rendering shows an unnamed Hawaiian beach at sunset and was inspired by legendary American painter Bob Ross. The artist tried to replicate the Ross-painted oceans, although he admits this is a bit difficult to replicate using 3D rendering software as opposed to the thick oil paints that Ross was known to use on his well-known PBS program The Joy of Painting. The reflections of the sunset, palm trees and sidewalk curbs on the glossy red paint of the C2 Corvette are another nice finishing touch.
