|"Rossi with a Ducati" 16x20 acrylic on canvas|
Lesson learned, when there is so much detail to be painted choose the smoothest canvas 'cos you can't signwrite accurately on bumpy stuff. It's been with me for a matter of months but feels like a lifetime. The early preparatory stage was enjoyable, it just got more challenging as it went along, and of course there are parts I'd like to re-do but have been persuaded to call it finished. The client is satisfied and that's good enough. So goodbye Valentino Rossi, I shall miss you!
