Here is a quick little update on my new Valentino Rossi ‘The Doctor’ oil painting of him on the 2017 Yamaha YZR M1 MotoGP prototype race bike.
This little shot shows the pencil line, then turps in first with a brown line to seal the graphite and then washed in with very thin oil colour to give the canvas a tooth for me to add the background and detail layers to the painting.

My oil painting of Joey Dunlop’s 26th and final Isle of Man TT Victory in the 2000 Ultra Lightweight 125 TT on the Honda RS125 is now completed. The scene shows ‘Yer Maun’ rounding Braddan Bridge on the famous Isle of Man TT course on his way to that record 26 TT victories.
The art is also being reproduced as a limited edition fine art print with permission from Joey’s widow Linda Dunlop. The Giclée print is available in A4, A3 or A2 sizes with free UK P&P. Check out the website for all the details and the full HD time-lapse video of the Joey Dunlop art.

Joey Dunlop’s body is pretty much done now on my 2000 125 Ultra Lightweight Isle of Man TT oil painting. I will complete his left glove when doing his left leg too. This is just a detail crop from the full painting.

Here is my new How to Draw video from Dreamworks’ new digital animated movie ‘The Boss Baby’ whose character is voiced by Alec Baldwin. I haven’t done a How To Draw video for a while as I have been busy on other projects but here is the first of my 2017 videos. This is fully narrated and in real time too. Clips of my drawing of Cheryl and Michael Dunlop are in the film along with some of my other How to Draw art tutorials.
Just for fun here is my drawing of Cheryl taken from the 2017 L’oréal February photoshoot.
This was a lovely drawing to produce as it shows Cheryl glowing in her pregnancy. Cheryl and Liam Payne from One Direction are expecting their first child around Mothers Day in the UK, 26th March 2017.
Cheryl who has been a regular Judge on the X-Factor alongside Simon Cowell is also a highly successful solo singing artist as well as being part of the hugely successful girl group ‘Girls Aloud’.
