Last night I finished the Peter Hickman oil on linen painting (and then went to watch The Great British Bake Off) of his exploits at the 2014 Isle of Man TT races where he became the fastest newcomer ever with the outstanding average speed lap of 129.104 mph around the famous mountain course.
This TT history capturing piece of art was the first painting on a new easel that was a present from my beautiful wife and I am now looking forward to producing many more.
The painting now has to dry prior to varnishing and then getting sorted for reproduction as fine art prints.
Here is a quick detail update of my oil on linen canvas painting of Peter Hickman who became the fastest newcomer at the 2014 Isle of Man TT races (indicated by the Orange bib on Hicky’s leathers) of an average speed of 129.104mph around the famous 37 and 3 quarter mile TT mountain course.
Peter Hickman did this amazing feat on the Paul Shoesmith Ice Valley Racing Superstock BMW S100RR racebike.
Just a short video update Vlog in the link below on how as an artist you have to work through being tired, just like anyone else who goes to work, and not the rubbish pontificated by some that they can ‘only paint when they are inspired’.
My new art includes The Isle of Man TT’s fastest newcomer Peter Hickman and some new Toy Story ‘How to Draw’ films.
Getting the pencil line down on my oil on linen painting of the Isle of Man TT’s fastest ever newcomer Peter Hickman riding the Paul Shoesmith Ice Valley Racing BMW S1000RR in 2014. Peter attained an average speed lap of 129.104 around the famous 37 and three quarter mile TT course. Laying the foundation of the art takes a long time and using the grid system really helps on such a detailed piece of art. The next step is to put an oil line down over the pencil prior to full colour under painting. Searching in my ‘How to Draw’ categories you will find ‘How to Draw Olaf’ and a Racing Car post and video that shows using the grid technique too for beginners.
