Titled and absolutely gorgeous to drive.

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.

INK and PENCIL are excellent mediums

I admit to enjoying using both pens and pencils for my drawing work.   Both of these mediums are highly controlable  though ink work is not easily corrected if you make a mistake……  Therefore,  I always “rough” out my subject in a soft pencil before applying the ink.

Another thing I do is leave the work alone after the pencil work, for a while.   Its amazing how you can spot any error(s) when you return to a work.   Staring at the board for end-less hours, definitely makes you incapable to seeing mistakes……..

It is essential to use a very soft rubber to eradicate unwanted pencil lines and to highlight facial features.    Also,  brush off all rubber dust with a wide and soft, fan, water-colour brush and then  use a hair-drier to blow away all the rubber debrix.
