Looking Good

Another good morning's drawing - Brett has started "a McLaren 6 something, probably an A", driven by Denny Hulme...

... whilst I have added some body panels to ET3148...

Oh, I've sold the first of the Passchendaele prints and Brett has sold one of the Morgan.

an hour, squeezed

I did manage an hour yesterday to start the background painting
Needs more, lots more but coming along nicely. Amazing how it
gives an impression...

As one ends another begins

No Brett today - domestic responsibilities have kept him away. Glorious day here in the Hutt - almost felt guilty sitting drawing this morning but I needed to finish Passchendaele. The estimated one hour became two as I finished, fiddled and found fault. But it is done:

I have (re)commenced the TranzMetro Ganz Mavag ET unit. Want to finish this quickly as I'd like to attempt the world's first 4-6-2 Pacific locomotive next - NZR's Q class.

A new beginning

Brett has started what he thinks is a quickie - a black and white rendering of a racing Morgan:

Full of motion - it's actually racing in the rain so with the reflections & spray it should be really impressive. Brett tells me that he's sold the first print of his recently completed Escort - but we don't seem to have posted the final version on this blog, so here's one I managed to find elsewhere...

Passchendaele is nearly complete - another hour should see it finally steaming:

I thought I'd post this - feedback from one of Brett's sales...

this trader is worth dealing with. His art is fantastic and we will definitely do more business with him. I highly recommend his work. We will commission him to draw our cars.

Waitangi Day

Another grey day in the dormitory suburbs of Wellywood - what has happened to our Summer? Sunday was very dull, muggy and damp - more like the weather one would expect of Dorkland. Despite Brett having to drop the ladies in his life off at the m-m-movies, we managed over two hours of productive drawing.

Sales have been somewhat slow so far this year - I presume the typical Kiwi is busy making the most of the longer evenings outdoors rather than hunching over their keyboards searching for artistic bargains.

Brett's Escort is very definitely being chased along...

while 'Passchendaele' simmers in the summer sun:

Interesting couple of emails from a buyer.
Bloke bought my print of Brendon Hartley, not a big seller usually and when I emailed him he explained he was a mate of Brendon's and he would be getting the print for Brendon to sign. I mentioned I wouldnt mind him signing the original too and the guy then offered to get him to do that for me if I did a portrait of Ayrton Senna for him..

Guess what's next on my list to do then?  heh..

This is the Brendon Hartley print.
