Valentino Rossi 2017 MotoGP oil painting update – AGV crash helmet – by Billy

Here is a little update of me starting to detail up Valentino Rossi’s 2017 MotoGP AGV crash helmet and visor on my oil painting.
I love the ‘oil patches’ created by the tear off on the visor and the strong reflections of the painted trackside kerb 🖌🎨🏁😃

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.
