Woo hoo! Done it, Tom! Possibly a little less dense than your original, and I had to go all round the houses to be able to post it. Lovely.
JF - Take a look at this - you cannot, as far as I am concerned, get such results with a computer. We can always discuss the different techniques, airbrush versus sable, film versus water colour board, but when you rely on someone else - the clever soft-ware writers - something is lost. I'm not a Luddite (I use predictive texting, for Pete's sake), I am not anti computers, they have their uses, but I am pro art, craft, skill, learning, dexterity, blood, sweat and tears, etc. TM
It is rather good isn't it with lots and lots of detail and it just looks right, although I think I would prefer it like yours without a shadow underneath.
As for computers, I seem to be permanently attached to my Apple Mac's. I've tried to carry over the old airbrush techniques with a bit of success, but nobody as yet has stumped up the cash to do that big job!
If I ever win the lottery, plan 1 is to get back racing again and plan 2 is to do something a bit special with a paintbrush and then try and do the same thing again on the computer, and not give a toss how it was all going to be paid for
I also had Mick Hills Capri, the 312P and the Lola but as they were only Motoring News pages they faded after a while.
