Just found this page.

http://www.pbase.com...le_modles_adami


Now my question.

Doe any body know if there are some other websites in the net with such good drawings?
I am mainly interested in Porsche but other hints are also welcome.

Thanks for your help !

Have a look at www.christopher-marshall.co.uk This gifted artist works only in pencil. I have seen his work first hand and there's no one to touch him IMO.

Thanks for the link Andrew. I'm just about to have a browse. I have one of your prints in my house, Gilles at Jarama in '81. It gets plenty of favourable comments. I'm currently looking for a print for the living room (she's letting me have a racing item in the room at last!). Current favourite is a Ferrigno print of von Trips at Spa in the sharknose. It received a favourable response as apparently it will , 'compliment the new couch'. :confused:

OT for a moment, I worked in Germany years ago as an illustrator, among my colleagues was a Welsh guy who had been there years on a permanent 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off timetable. His wife was phoning at least 3 times everyday with this problem or that problem. One was because she could not get the lawn mower to start! The real classic was the half hour conversation which I could only hear his end of ( it was a tiny office), something like....'Do you really need it darling, it's a lot of money, yes I know it will go nicely with the sofa....well if you must OK, I'll call them and pay with my credit card'. It was, apparantly, a rare pink parrot in a cage, exactly the same hue as the furniture for about £500!

Well, the Augusta International Raceway Preservation Society (AIRPS) is proud of this "one off" print that was presented at our annual fund raising event this past Saturday.

It depicts Rex White, who was in attendance and is the 1960 NASCAR Champion, with our "5WKids" (who, what, when, where and why) Memorial.

We are proud and thanks to Michael W. Smith Originals for providing this fund raiser for the memorial project. If you would like a copy or perhaps have your own thoughts for an original: http://www.mwscoolproductions.com/

I used to draw a lot as a kid - no TV in those hard times! - and we were encouraged to do it early in the Technical Illustration course that I attended. After year two it got sort of dropped. However, my boss wanted me to carry on, so I did life-drawing at the same Tech College, one evening a week. The only problem was the tutor - but I won't bore you with the details. Suffice to say that I dropped out after another year. Freehand drawing is a great hobby, and I am convinced that it improves your general visual skills, you notice more if you have to sketch it.

Have you done it yet? :D

I had a strange life drawing tutor once. I'd been doing lots of archaeological plans over the summer and could draw the figure accurately in outline without any need for construction lines. The tutor obviously didn't like the clean look and suggested that perhaps I could add some afterwards!

Anyway, now I do have construction lines, too many sometimes. Here's what I did today...

and just for you - here's a Frazer Nash. The garage had several in various stages of being rebuilt...

Hi, a post in the GPMA boards brought me to this forum, which I wasn't aware of and I was happy to find this thread. I'm very interested in aviation and motorsports art (in addition to the Good Old Days of racing :) ) and while aviation art is well represented forumwise on the web, I've never been able to find much discussion of motorsports art. I've done a couple of digital pieces including Rindt's USGP winner of 1969

Posted Image

and this one of Cunningham C-4R #3 with John Fitch up in the 1952 Le Mans 24 hrs.


Posted Image

which I'm about to transfer to acrylic on masonite. Both of these works were done with the program ArtRage 2.5 .

I see lots of beautiful work and great discussion here and am going to have to spend time browsing through all the threads for inspiration.

I like the way you've captured the wet conditions in the top one Felix. I was at Goodwood yesterday and got to see a few other artists paintings as originals rather than much reduced prints. I was very impressed with the scale and detail of some of them and whilst many were not necessarily to my taste I did admire how three dimensional some of them were - the cars almost seemed to leap off the canvas - something which didn't really happen when looking at the prints.

The top one looks like ink - is it? I always felt very self-concious sketching in public, and I react the same way as a lot of uncharitable non-artists when I see a water-colourist with easel set up slap bang in the middle of a footpath by a beauty-spot - 'Poser! I shouldn't, but I do - there, I've said it! The point is that some of them do it as much for crowd reaction as anything...

When I was about nineteen I had to spend several days in the vibrant metropolis that is London, wandering about Olympia with a 20"x30" board, sketching buildings onto a perspective street map for a major civil engineering project - the illustration ended up 20"x90". I hated every moment, and then had to do the same in Halifax (not Nova Scotia), and hated that, too. I did quite enjoy college sketching trips, though, as they tended to be conducted in less-well populated ares, like the goods yard at Luton railway station - all rust and weeds. Bit like my garage, come to think of it...

Ha ha I don't use an easel, just an A5 pad and I sketch standing or find myself somewhere out of the way to sit on the floor. I do wear a smock and beret though - and insist on absolute silence while I work:)

The Frazer nash is done in pen - a thick and a thin PITT artists pen - posh felt tips. I can't seem to settle one particular medium and go through phases - fountain pen, watercolour, propelling pencil, fat fibre tip. It's not really condusive to developing a recogniseable style.

Looking at your drawings, that's what.

I knew you didn't use an easel, I was refering to a 'type' that you come across, sometimes in a boskey dell, more often a seaside village, but I'm glad you are wearing the timeless uniform of the ar'ist. I wondered what caused those odd moments of absolute silence at Goodwood, I put it down to shifting ear-wax, but it must have been you, sketching.

The colour is nice...
