Ferrari progress

bit more on the Amon fazzaz..
going better than I expected. Warwick hived off to Paraparam to sell some prints this morning so we missed again... Did you get any sales Warwick?
Had a few this week and a Subaru today so its all good.. Capital Books took up my excess stock to the Auckland Speedshow too so I may have got lucky, who knows?

amon again..

just about finished the Hulme... painted the track (Gouache) and letting it dry before doing some last pencil textures. So Ive started an Amon Ferrari. A 330 P4 I think.. Rough reference photo but the 1/18th model can help with some detail..

another rainy sunday

but thats good for drawing...
good progress on the Brabham..

plus a link to a wee video I made this morning showing my workspace and 'technique'..

and another nice wee model has arrived. The Local hobby shop has had a fire sale on IXO models and theres a few planes for sale at quite ridiculous prices.. This is a japanese Emily, 1/144th scale yet still quite large.

Belmont Silence..

still nowt from warwick.. Im not hasslin' as I assume he has reasons.. busy time of life I guess.
but I keep on alone...
The car has benefited from a few solid hours this week but that engine is sooo detailed...
almost as bad as a train undercarriage..

well the car is.. lol
Ive posted a close up of the lower engine area Ive just completed tonight..
very impressionistic of mecahnical bits hidden in shadow.. quite pleasing actually.

Engine work

sunday.. no comms from Warwick so I guessed our companionable drawing sessions are suspended. At least until further notice..
so I watched the wet British GP qualifying plus the GP3 race and then nearly gave myself a heart attack chopping a climbing vine from over the front fence.. then out for the usual Jetty lunch and coffee plus a small walk on Petone beach and back to attack the Hulme..
Ive managed to outline the lower engine area in black and thats good progress..
Sold another ebay print today too... nice surprise.

I wonder how the Trains are going?

blacks aint blacks

another hours work...
the black bottom looks just black yes? but its actually layers of 4 colours, black, juniper green, dark brown and orange yellow.. Pity the camera shows just black (plus a little reflected shine) but the print will show it!

Healey Duo

Just received the Kyosho Austin Healey 3000LM today. super 1/18th diecast. Shown here with my older revell Austin Healey Bugeye model. A right pair and very nice addition to the collection.

slowly she goes boys

slow cold sunday... no comms from warwick so assumed no drawing and took Anthea out for a coffee at The Jetty and a walk on Petone beach. Afternoon spent sorting Richards Trades out and various other bits and pieces so very little drawing. Forced myself to do about an hour from 7:30 tho and more or less started some greening of the car. I think this one will take a while......
