This oil painting of Valentino Rossi on his 2018 Yamaha YZR-M1 MotoGP prototype race bike took about 6-8 weeks full time work. It is possibly the most detailed single motorcycle racer oil painting I have ever done. I use Winsor and Newton Artist Oil Paints and Rosemary and Company Artist Brushes on a linen canvas.
It is available as a fine art print on the MotoGP page on this website.
Detail of Jonathan Rea in his Arai lid and Alpinestars leathers is now complete on my oil painting of him at Donington Park on his way to his first home round win. I use Rosemary and Company Brushes and Winsor and Newton Artist Oils for my painting. 🖌️🎨🏁🏆🏆🏆
Onto his Kawasaki ZX-10R Superbike next 👍😃

After yesterdays post – it is now past midnight and after a long day of DIY (should stand for Don’t Involve Yourself!) I haven’t turned into a pumpkin but managed to make a purchase on the Linen Canvas Roll Conundrum. So DIY canvas making here I come again as I can’t get a standard size linen canvas for my Motorcycle art. 20×30 inches is a little to large and the 2:3 ratio is what I require for my paintings and no one does a 16×24 inch or 12x18inch canvas which I would like to use. So I am making them myself.
But before I go onto my purchase one other point on bad mass produced canvasses. Why oh why do the people who oversee them being made have them stapled in the corners through the tenon joints? A staple in each corner through both pieces of interlocking wood has a rather marked effect on rendering the STRETCHER KEYS USELESS!(emphasis mine for obvious effect)
