#1 Jaguar Paintings.

Post by H7OB » Fri Jan 03, 2020 7:20 pm

I always enjoyed art & design at school and college and went into automotive design as a profession. From time to time I tell myself I should pick up some brushes, get my a$$ into gear and do some painting again. Anyway, I promised a mate who had helped me with some bike paintwork as well as getting the leather for my re-trim that I would do him a painting of his XK120. So, not wanting to get too carried away, I found two plywood frames in the shed, bought a dozen emulsion tester pots from Wilco’s and made a start!....

I thought I’d try my E Type first for the practice then move onto the XK. It’s probably been 20 plus years but I’ve quite enjoyed it so far. I might have to ask for some decent brushes for my forthcoming birthday and do a bit more!

Fantastic. I am always envious of people with artistic and musical talents.

I also find it fascinating that people can let those talents lie dormant for long periods of time.

Keep it up, please.

Fabulous work, Paul! I would never have the ability to do free-hand drawing like that. Mine would look vaguely like an E-type, but nowhere near an accurate representation! I can build model kits, but that’s kind of cheating in comparison ;)

If my mate Richard gets his act together and sorts out either his garage or workshop, I’d love to get him a painting like this of his car. I’ll bear you in mind!
