In 2020 History was made in France at the 24 Heures du Mans by the introduction of not one, but two, all female teams of women racing drivers. They were jointly known as the IRON DAMES. In this painting, an original, signed artwork, size 80cm x 50cm. I have featured one of the drivers from the IRON LYNX team, Manuela Gostner at the wheel of one of their Ferraries. The two teams came in joint 9th in the final placings.
The second team was run by Richard Mille. Hopefully both teams will again, participate in not only the 24 Heures du Mans but a whole group of motor racing events in 2021 and I wish them all the very best.
I’d like to introduce you to the next generation of the famous and ever popular Renault Alpine A110 – the all new Renault Alpine GT4. This car is part of the French Mirage Racing Team and is raced with great success by Benoit Lison and Vincent Beltoise.
The car somewhat looks like the original, but that is where the resemblance ends. It is chunkier and has a totally different body and engineering composition and it is very, very fast.
For some reason, the bold red of Ferrari is associated with very fast sports car, which indeed, this particular model, the 355, most certainly is. This painting has been executed in artists’ colours on primed, box framed canvas, size 70cm x 50cm. This is a commissioned motoring artwork and therefore, not for sale.
As an Artist and driver, the Ferrari F 40 epitomises style that does not age! It is an extraordinary concept, big, bold and theatrical both in design and performance………….
I have executed this motoring artwork in Artist’s Oils on primed, box-framed canvas, size 40cm x 50cm. This work is original, signed and is available. The proceeds will go to Medecins Sans Frontieres. This painting is on display in my Art Studio.
Every Artist knows that particular feeling that sometimes, you HAVE to PAINT an item you have just seen! It could be something that is in keeping with your style as an Artist or it may not, but paint it….you must. And this is exactly what happened to me when I first encountered this beautiful machine. You might ask why the rear view? I’ll tell you -the front of this Porsche, although beautifully styled as are most Porsches, didn’t have (to me) the “kerb” appeal of the rear! The drama of those huge wheel arches, housing these amazingly wide tyres and the spoiler under the elegant rear window, make this truly an iconic machine – bred for racing!
This work has been executed on primed, box-framed canvas, size 40cm x 50cm. It is an original, signed artwork and will be for sale shortly in a venue in Rennes: more anon. The profits from the sale of this and other motoring artworks at this exhibition are for Medecins Sans Frontieres. I hope you enjoy this work.
This (motoring) artwork has been requested by our local Sapeurs Pompiers – Fire Brigade to you and I. This engine had recently been delivered to the Fire Station at Ercé en Lamée (my home village) where is is based. The work itself is 70cm x 50cm in size.
The work has been painted in Artist’s Oils on primed, box canvas and satin glazed for protection.
This is not the usual sort of work that people ask of me, but, I didn’t hesitate to do it. Artists often are requested for work that is a little out of the ordinary, but if it fits in with the overall context of your work, why not?
