Here is a new one I have done for David & Lorraine Gathercole. The Coldwell C14 they own, shown at Oulton. It is a small 12 x 10in picture:

I have other historic pictures on the burner, however mainly busy with the contemporary scene of late, doing pictures for the likes of Lewis Hamilton, Barwell Motorsport & Comtec Racing. More to come in a couple of weeks.

Keith B is/was also a big cheese in Zurich/Allied Dunbar - the latter being a small reason I've always been a little 'off' him... Sorry industry prejudices and all that !!

Thanks Richard.
Here is one I found on an old photo over Christmas, not a very good photo though unfortunately.

At the 1990 (or maybe '91?) Donington racing car show I shared a stand with fellow artist Alan Willis.
Alan did the coloured pencil portrait, helmet and background and left a space for me to add the GRD
which was done in acrylics. It looked very smart framed up (there is too much contrast in this photo losing the shading on the tyres for example).

Kind words came from a passing Tom Wheatcroft and other friends of Roger. Dave Brodie came by and looked at it for a while then had to turn away to compose himself. When he came back he said Roger was his best mate and produced the cash asking price. It still proudly hangs in his home today. Wish I had a better pic of it, will have to visit Dave to get a new one!

I can fully appreciate his sentiments, I am reading "The Lost Generation" at present, and have put it down for a while as it conjures up so many memories of watching Roger race (as well as TB and TP), he was so very highly regarded in the Racing World. Great pictures Andrew, did you exhibit at Stoneleigh in 2004? If so I spoke with you regarding a picture of Ronnie Peterson, I think you had one on your stand?

The RW collage is a truly evocative. :cry:
