Andy was really pleased with the result and is giving the painting to his Mum, who used to come to every race with him.

Dougi Mercer, MD of Toughsheet Recycling, sponsors of the National Twinshock Series, had an old photo from his racing days that had sadly been bleached by sunlight and was very faint. Dougi commissioned on Oil on Linen Canvas painting, size 18″ x 24″ to capture in exacting detail his favourite photo for posterity.

Oil painting is a lot more complicated than water based acrylics, due to extended drying times and having to use mediums to thicken or thin the paint for glazes, detail etc. The result’s though are outstanding, the vibrancy of the colours just “ping out!” No wonder the old masters used them to such good effect.
