There is nothing quite like driving a Subaru Impreza WRC to make you come alive.  Subaru

Luckily for me, as a motoring artist, I enjoy driving these beautiful cars  – prepared by Rally School ireland,  just as much as I enjoy drawing and painting them.    This illustration has been executed in Artists’ Water-colours on Canson 300gsm paper, size A 3 format.   It has also been treated with a special glaze to prevent fading.    These Japanese cars have a very impressive history of wins in  the rally world and have a shed-load of championship titles to add to their name.

Recording an event through art.

Action painting, embed, France, image, motoring artwork, Original artwork, Signed by Artist, watercolour

I like to use my camera(s) to record events that I am involved in.   At my leisure, later on, I can download the photographs and make a drawing or painting of the particular project.   Here, I am enjoying a drive in a Peugeot WRX – courtesy of the popular Conduire @ Loheac.fr   in Brittany.  Luckily for me, the weather was good  – which added to my enjoyment.

 I mentioned cameras as I use a combination of a Fuji Finepix, a mobile phone camera and a Go Pro  to record whatever I want.   And |I take lots of photographs too, as even minute differences in positioning, light and so forth, can make huge changes to what I actually require as an artwork.

Because I work directly onto paper/canvas, I need a good quality reproduction, i.e. photo so that my artwork can be reasonably accurate.   And although I can make a lot of adjustments via the computor to any photograph, if it is not clear, or too dark, or too bright, the artwork will suffer!       My cameras are not new, nor particularly expensive and I know their foibles…..as well as my own limitations as a photographer………Anne Peugeot 2018)
