Wow - this was quite a challenge!

To say the subject is a serious vintage racing bike and car enthusiast would be an understatement. After visiting the site where I was to set up for the painting, take reference photos etc, I realised that this was going to be a multiple portrait - a man, a car and a motor bike!

Although I love a challenge I was very concerned about the time this portrait would take considering the amount of detail involved - and the fact that John is a very skilled mechanic meant I couldn't 'fudge' anything. Luckily all concerned were happy enough to wait patiently for the completetion of this piece.
