This painting has been on the ‘drawing board’ for a while, but is now finally finished. Reference photo used with kind permission from Aruba Racing. If you’re interested – the work in progress shots can be found on my FB page https://www.facebook.com/AnArtThing
Finally all drawn out, it’s not shown very clear here, but you get the idea! It’s drawn on canvas 40cm x 40cm and I will be using Winsor & Newton Galeria acrylics. The next stage is to get the background colour right before moving onto the rider and bike. Hopefully the updates will be more frequent now the complicated drawing bit has been finished!!
This is my latest painting – 2010 and 2012 MotoGP World Champion Jorge Lorenzo. Taken from various references and merged together.
Below are the work in progress shots. On the left – after it was all drawn out. The middle picture is with the first layer of paint on. Once all of the background is the right colour – as in the right picture, I then start to work on all of the detail of rider and bike.
