This is a Porsche Carrera 6 that I saw at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart. This is one of those vehicles that one can only stand back and gaze at in awe, a true representation of what metal, alloy and fibre can be fashioned into that that leaves one gobsmacked and awestruck.
When I arrived in London in 2004, I had ensured that I would have a little more than 3 weeks to settle in prior to my Masters course beginning, in order that I could toddle around and visit places I’d been before as well as discover the new to me. One of my first visitsContinue reading “Lightweight E-Type”
Another car from Nick Mason’s Ten Tenths Collection. This was a beautiful Ferrari 250GTO that was up on jackstands being worked on. The GTO was between a couple of Bugattis and a Dark Green Ferrari 512BB. A great place to spend an afternoon.
A belated tribute to one of my favourite drivers. I sketched this from a photo I took at the 2005 Goodwood Festival of speed, at which Stirling Moss piloted his legendary Mercedes 300SLR up the course. Racing is diminished by his passing.

Ahhhhh – one of the most beautiful of cars…This is an overlay of an overlay. I sketched this from an internet reference (lacking a D-Type of my own 😦 ) and traced the “successful” result onto vellum. I’m hoping to get time to do a proper digital painting of this…
