About The Artist:
My large canvas paintings of vintage racers and motorcycles are based on my compulsive photographing of motorsport events and shows. The mechanics and designs of the vintage and modern bikes and racecars are fascinating to me. They are the product of complex engineering calculations and fabrication and there final forms I regard as works of art. That is art with function as well as being pleasing to the eye.
When I paint large, I try to bring to the viewer the mechanical design details not available in a small format. I’ll edit the composition for setting and location selecting elements from several reference photos until I’m satisfied. The small and accurate details of a motorcycle or car is essential to my work and requires many photo enlargements to complete a painting.
