Look at the poster behind his head! Well, almost to the day... close enough!
Denny Hulme resting against a sunlit terra cotta wall at Monaco 1967. Which he went on to win as part of his Championship winning year!
more drawing... Labour day today... did the lawns, went out for a coffee (Starbucks, surprisingly good!) then took the sprite for a run to get some Moa beer! and finally settled down to get into the Hulme portrait! Gee this one needs some colours... you can see a selection in the pic... its coming along nicely despite the weird paper! and best of all... Matinee Idle on the radio!!
started a small portrait of Denny Hulme to take to the Hulme festival in January.
Based on a nice shot of him resting against a Monaco wall in 1967. Looks a bit sunburnt so far... heh..
This is using a new type of rag based paper called Magnani. Magnani are based in Florence and apparently produce some of the highest rated fine art papers in the world. Im using their Incisioni paper which is probably not the best for coloured pencil but has a nice warm cream tone.
The catalina is progressing also and I just got another Muscle Car commission. An awesome (and although that word is overused it certainly suits this car) Plymouth GTX Hemi from 1969. The engine is just HUGE... 9.6ltrs and over 700hp!!! when it drove up my driveway yesterday the ground was shaking!! heh.
nearing completion now.. just the track and curbs. Its a smooshed car a bit! ie: its not got clear edges or outlines... thats coz its going FAST! (and coz it was ever so slightly blurred in the panned shot I took in 1975 (I think).. anyway here's the update..
