Very nice work. You have a talent I can only dream about. It seems that whenever I look for motorcycle art it's mostly related to Harley's. It's great to see some different subject material.

Your painting is replica from a photo or you draw from your memory?

More "Bike Art"

I posted a few pieces of Bike Art a while back . Here's a few more - mostly done in graphite pencil or color pencil, and the theme lately has been what I call Legends of Sidecar Racing. There are a good many male/female teams in this series, a fact I found a bit surprizing. There are also a number of riders and passengers who were killed in this sport. I'll start with a solo rider -

"Let's be carefull out there"

Santiago Herrero, Ossa, Isle of Man TT, 1970. 14x17, graphite & color pencil, dec 27, 2014.
Santiago Herrero, Ossa. born 9 May, 1943, Madrid, Spain, died 10 June 1970, Isle of Man TT Race. He was 27 years old....Ossa withdrew from racing after this tragedy.


Claude and Marie Lambert, Isle of Man, june 12, 1961. 14x17, color pencil, feb 3, 2015.
Marie Lambert competed as a female passenger with sidecar driver and husband Claude Lambert. She was killed at the 1961 Isle of Man TT Races, age 25 years.


Dane Rowe and Bill Copson, Isle of Man. 1969 TT. 14x17, color pencil, jan 16, 2015.


Helmut Fath and Wolfgang Kalauch, URS 4 cylinder, mid 1960s. 14x17, color pencil, feb 1, 2015.
Fath was two-time Sidecar World Champion, 1960 and 1968.

Norman Hanks and Rose Arnold Hanks, 1968 Isle of Man. This husband & wife team finished second in the 750cc Sidecar class at the 1968 IOM , 14x17, color pencil, feb 11, 2015.


Jacques Drion & Ingeborg Stoll-LaForge, Hillclimb, Vienna, Austria, march 31, 1957. 14x17, color pencil, feb 21, 2015. Both members of this team were killed in a non-championship sidecar race at the Czech GP at Brno, 24 August 1958. At the time of the fatal crash they were in second place and on the final lap. Ingeborg was killed instanly, Jacques died the following day. He was 37, she just 28 years old.

Thanks - but actually I do it for the pleasure and satisfaction it brings. Also a way to "keep my hand in" cycling now that I'm no longer able to ride.

Had a look at the board. Great stuff. I've put a 'follow' (James) on it.

Cheers.
