My artwork, like racing, is built on speed and innovation. I love working fast, and moving on to the next great racing moment. I create it this way -- It's a combination of hand-painted abstract watercolors and digital brush work. I use a computer tablet and stylus; Once I get the watercolors scanned in, I manipulate the watercolors and digital brush strokes until my creative goals are reached. My originals are printed with archival inks, on museum-grade canvas, and then the original, layered, digital file is destroyed.
Giclee prints and limited-edition prints are produced with the same great care and attention to detail.
Here's a step-by-step look at one of my favorite works:
I start off by putting in the general shape and color of the car; then add the secondary color.
Next, I add in a little detail and the preliminary background...
Then comes the final tweaks to the car and the background... This is the hard part for me.
