Valentino Rossi & a Ducati

"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!

  1. Jo,
    You are really very brave , taking on such a complicated subject.The painting is greatand you have done an excellent job but for some reason, whether it is the color or my screen, the bike stands out in greater detail than the figure.
