A Huge Challenge!

Ive been asked to do a large (A2 size) portrait of a fellow worker's parents.
Her father has passed on a couple of years ago and her mother is quite ill so the family wants a nice portrait to remember them by. They are from Samoan / Chinese background and the reference picture chosen for me shows her mum in a very complex head dress with a detailed colourful costume!

A BIG challenge but one Im very happy to take on and so far, so good! I can sense a LOT of glazing to come tho..

Gilles Villeneuve Ferrari


Completed now... All the twiddly bits smerged over or tidied up and the road markings completed
(I assume these are actually white markings that have been rubberised over by the F1 cars going over them. ) The rubber peels off on to the crevices and cracks etc..
It does give more of a curve / corner feeling to complement the turning of the wheels and where the driver is looking.
Will be up on trademe very soon for sale of prints!

Gilles!

Started a nice Overhead picture of Gilles Villeneuve in his Ferrari (126K?) in the early 80's.
Good solid work on the tyres for a kickoff.

Mazda Montage

Finally completed the Mazda Montage... The chocolate side panel was quite tricky in the end.. had to get some special pencils and then I applied a wash of acrylic paint to darken it and then after that dried, some more pencil on the top. Quite the mixed Media image in the end.




ps: the pic is a photo and the lights caught some parts at a funny angle! The scan should be way better.
