Exhibition Request

 

I have just had the privilege of being asked to include my paintings of Austin 7s in an exhibition being arranged as part of the Austin 7 Clubs Association Centenary Event in July. Very honoured.

November 2021


Progression of Alfa Romeo

 

My latest drawing is entitled ”Progression of Alfa Romeo”. Shown here is an 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900 Mille Miglia winner, a Alfa Sprint Grand Prix and a new Alfa Romeo 4C. All show how Alfa has progressed over the years.


Herbie

The last of my celebrity car drawings. This time it’s one we all probably know very well from our childhood as Herbie, a 1963 Volkswagen Beetle, that was featured in several Walt Disney motion pictures starting with the 1968 feature film The Love Bug.


The General Lee

I’ve just finished the 3rd of my celebrity car drawings. This time it’s the “General Lee”, an orange 1969 Dodge Charger from the original Dukes of Hazzard TV programme. It was famous for its signature horn, police chases, car jumps, and for having the doors welded, leaving the Dukes to climb in and out through the windows. Brings back some great memories! Size is 20” x 16".

October 2021


The Italian Job 

So, following on from my recent 007 Aston Martin DB5 drawing, I thought I would continue the theme but this time with cars from another iconic film, the 1969 “The Italian Job”. Finished in drawing pen and coloured pencils. Size is 20” x 16"


Aston Martin DB5 

Given the recent release of the latest James Bond 007 film, I thought I would take a go at drawing the infamous 007 Aston Martin DB5, hope you like? Size is 20” x 16" 

March 2021


1919 Pierce-Arrow 

Just finished my latest watercolour painting of a 1919 Pierce-Arrow Roadster. Hope I’ve done it justice. Size is 20” x 16”. 


Jaguar F-Type, E-Type and Mini Cooper

 

This painting was completed for a client who owns a 2013 F-Type, a 1974 E-Type Series III and a 1997 Mini Cooper. Finished in watercolour and measuring a large 24" x 20". 

February 2021


2003 JAGUAR XKR 400

 

This painting was also completed in watercolour and measures 16" x 12".


AUSTIN 7 GATHERING

 

This painting was completed in watercolour.


VINTAGE BENTLEY TRIBUTE

This painting was done as a tribute to Vintage Bentleys. On the left is a Bentley Bluetrain and on the right is a 1932 Bentley 8 Litre Saloon.



1939 JAGUAR SS SALOON AND 1975 TRIUMPH TR6

These two paintings were done as gifts for two of my friends who recently acquired these cars as restoration projects. Completed in fine drawing pen and watercolour.

January 2021


HOT RODS AND CUSTOMS

This large picture was done in pen and watercolour and measures 30" x 22". 


HARLEYS AT HOME

This commission was done for a client who wanted their home shown as a background to their two lovely Harley Davidsons.


 


 

MG TC

This time a MG TC. The picture was done in pen and watercolour and framed using some new aperture mounts which I have acquired. These mounts measure 16” x 12” in total with the top aperture approximately 9” x 10” and the bottom aperture approximately 6”x 4”.




Jaguar X150

Just finished this painting of a 2008 Jaguar XK-R. Finished in watercolour and measuring 24" x  20". 

December 2020

Alfa Romeo P3

The Alfa Romeo P3 was a 1930’s single-seater Grand Prix racing car and was based on the earlier successful Alfa Romeo P2. The painting was done in watercolour and measures 24” x 20” in size.


Triumph GT6 and Jaguar 

This owner wanted a picture of his previously owned Triumph GT6 Mk1 with infamous Wolfrace wheels  and his much newer Jaguar XK8. Placed in a 12” x 10” mount it was finished in pen and watercolour.

November 2020

"Barn Scene"

I enjoy watching a TV series called “American Pickers” and this is my adaptation of what they sometimes come across in the programme at barns right across the USA. This was done in drawing pen and measures 20” x 16”.


 

"From Classic to Cooper"

 

Something a little different this time.

 

This project was entitled “From Classic to Cooper”.

 

The reasoning behind it is if you turn the picture 180 degrees the top mini goes from being an original classic mini to a later Mini Cooper in its reflection, something a little different.


 

1931 Austin Swallow

 

This is a 1931 Austin Swallow done in watercolour with a simple pen drawing background of Polperro in Cornwall.

1932 Oldsmobile and Harley Davidson

Another art piece I’ve finished is this period image of a 1932 Oldsmobile and a Harley Davidson with its Cycletow conversion kit. Initially drawn in pencil, i then went over the pencil with more precise lines with a drawing pen (size 3). Once all pencil lines were erased then varying layers of watercolours were added. Painting was done on Acquarello watercolour paper 300 g/m (140 lbs) and is 18" x 24" in size. This is quite an in-depth and detailed picture but it's just the era I love doing. Now just needs mounting and framing to finish.

October 2020

These two commissions have now been despatched to their new owners. One is a modern day Jaguar XKR, the other a Fiat Abarth 124 Spider.

 

July 2020

This commission was done for Mr David Spillane. One image is of his beloved 2010 Jaguar X150 and the other was for his love of Scooters.  He asked if his wife could be included in the Jaguar painting so of course I obliged.

 

May 2020

I was asked to paint a commission of a friend's 1936 Wolseley Hornet race/road Special.

First introduced in 1932 the two seater Hornet Special fuelled the public's infatuation with speed and the open road during a decade when motoring boomed.

The owner of this beautiful example wanted an artwork commission completed in watercolour of his beloved sporting roadster and left it up to me to place the car in a suitable background.

I discovered that the owner had previously raced the car up the Prescott Hill Climb so I researched the venue and found a good shot of the venue start line which I thought would be just fine. 

The owner then kindly sent me across these two initial images to use as photographic material.

 


I then went on-line and found the picture below of the chosen background venue and used it as a guide for the background material...


I then, with a bit of artistic licence, began the process of drawing the car initially in pencil, followed by fine art pen, before the final washes of watercolour and shading were added. Some characters were then added to aid the final scene before the picture was then mounted and framed in colours that I thought did the picture justice.

 


The painting has now been presented to its new owner who has kindly taken these superb images of the final artwork against the car itself, and what a great shot it makes too - thank you Tony. 

 


Below are some of my Jaguar commissions done during May 2020 for club members of the Jaguar XKEC and F-TypeEC.

 

April 2020

Shown below are some of my pen drawings depicting modern day hot rods and vintage Bentleys from the 1920s. All are 16" x 12" in size and took many man hours of shading and completion.
