Here is my finished painting of VR46. Plenty of hours spent on it but really enjoyed painting this action shot. A huge thank you to N Oleotto for the use of the original photo.
Spent a few hours at MotoGP testing at Cheste, Valencia today. It was great to see some of the GP racers practising on track. Here are a few photographs I took, from left to right, top to bottom – the track; Alvaro Bautista & Dani Pedrosa; Scott Redding; Jorge Lorenzo; Dani Pedrosa; Marc Marquez; Valentino Rossi; Andrea Dovizioso; some of the rider’s motorhomes.
The weekend of 9-11 November at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit at Cheste, Valencia was to hold the last Motogp race of the 2012 season. The champions of the three classes had already been decided – Moto3 – Sandro Cortese, Moto2 – Marc Marquez and Motogp – Jorge Lorenzo.
The photos above are from the Sunday race day – From left to right, top to bottom – At the circuit; Nico Terol had a lap of honour after having corner 4 named after him; Moto3 race; Marc Marquez; Valentino Rossi; Nicky Hayden & Danilo Petrucci; Jorge Lorenzo & Dani Pedrosa; Jorge Lorenzo after crashing; my purchase of the day, a Carlos Checa cap (I know he is no longer in Motogp, but I’m a big fan!). They’re not very clear as it was cold, raining and I was shivering, but not a bad souvenir of a great day out.

Valentino Rossi and Max Biaggi – two of the world’s greatest riders. Once had a great rivalry in Motogp, with Rossi eventually the winner, and Biaggi moving onto World Superbikes.
Rossi shown here is on the factory Yamaha, and Biaggi on the Alstare Suzuki in his first year at world superbikes.
The references used on these two paintings were from magazines, and so they proudly hang on our living room wall with Rossi on his Ducati, as shown previously.
