about the project

I always loved to paint. Many years ago I tried hard to be good at painting, but I just was not pacient enough back then. Now I found that digital painting in Photoshop is a very nice way to spend some time sitting in front of the computer. Nice music and a subject that I've been fascinated by since kid, motorsport.

This digital paintings are my view at the F1 and motorcycle heroes of the 70s and 80s. The James Hunts and the Sheenes. As an old-time motorsport fan and a kid that grew up watching motor racing, I feel that that era was packed with outstanding characters.
