Here is my Michael Dunlop 2017 Senior TT oil on linen canvas painting titled ‘Charging Bull’.
This full HD time-lapse shows the ‘The Bull’ of the Keppel Gate corner being painted, including the ‘Road Furniture’ hazard bollards as Michael Dunlop goes on his way to his 3rd Isle of Man TT Senior victory riding the Hawk Racing Suzuki GSXR 1000cc Superbike in its maiden year.
I use Rosemary and Company Brushes and Winsor and Newton Artist Oil Paints to produce my art.
The art is now available as a limited edition Giclée fine art print from my website www.billyart.co.uk
Drawing Michael Dunlop ‘The Bull’ 2016 Southern 100 Work in Progress teaser time-lapse.
This full HD time-lapse shows the detailing up of the Isle of Man Steam Packet Banner (who sponsor the Southern 100 races), Ivy and kerbstones from my full art of Michael Dunlop aboard the Hawk Racing BMW S1000RR Superstock bike on his way to victory in the 2016 Southern 100 Races.
I was really blessed to produce this piece of art of TT Legend Joey Dunlop that is endorsed by his family. When launched just under a year ago it was a release of 350 Giclée fine art prints. Now there are less than 80 of the prints remaining and will more than likely sell out before Christmas of 2016. Continue reading →
Here is a quick update of my Guy Martin Smiths Racing 2015 Isle of Man TT oil painting work in progress. Guy is sitting out from the 2016 TT as he is taking part in the gruelling ‘Tour Divide’ cycle race which clashes with the TT. He is also attempting to break 100mph on a wall of death and the motorcycle land speed record on a dual Rocket III engined Triumph. Busy Guy as normal.

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.
This has been a very long time in appearing but finally I have started ‘The Art of Bily’ blog.
So here I will post my ramblings on art related subjects and some things that may be on my mind. There will be all updates on my own art which is mainly within motorsport subjects of F1, MotoGP, BSB, WSBK, BTCC and Road Racing. In the picture you can see me with my oil on canvas painting of History Maker Marc Márquez which you can view more full on my website along with my other art. www.billyart.co.uk
