This  track-day at Loheac ended up with the Fiat losing its brakes – totally,  hence me, the driver,  holding one of the large clumps of grass -collected in my efforts to stop the car!!!    No damage done!      P.S. The car has just had a complete makeover over – including new brakes and motor racing specification, brake fluid……and etc., etc……………..And hopefully will be seen on some of the Hill-Climb Courses during 2018, plus of course, a couple of local Track-Days.Anne & grass...jpg

Preparation sketch of a work in progress.   Pencil on paper.   A5  size.AC Cobra 1I am on of those artists who like to draw the initial sketch of my artwork, directly onto the paper, board, or canvas.    Then, gradually I build up the artwork in the finishing medium, watercolour, ink, acrylic or oils as I deem fit for that particular artwork.   However, it is vital that the original illustration is technically perfect, otherwise, I will end up with a work that isn’t totally correct.   This vehicle, incidentally was designed by the late Carrol Shelby, whose summary of this amazing iconic, 5.5 litre sportscar, was – “there ain’t no substitution for cubic inches”…..and he was right.
