    Been doing these for sometime using shots i've taken over the years at Ferrari shows, but i end up using them shortly after drawing them... I finally have a few done in bulk so i though i'd start a thread on these and continue when i make more...

    These 15-minute drawings are for small cards (6 1/4") using waterproof ink, and in some cases watercolour paint for a splash of red or yellow or whathaveyou.
    Also, some act as a "preview" for myself as to whether a full-sized painting might be in order...

    Using some of my 100s of shots from the recent FCA Nationals in Toronto for these.
    More will come as a finish them; from this show and others...

    GT

    they are usually titled and signed... havent got that done yet so i'll put the titles on here.

    Man I wish I had your talent. Looks phenomenal!

    I'd have to forward these to my family members so they can give them to me on my birthday and holidays. LOL.

    Thanks guys..
    I want these to be an ongoing thing... doing a few each week...
    I try to keep the drawings quick and fresh, not finished detailed renderings by any means. As mentioned we are talking 15 maybe 20 minute drawings.

    The 599 i took down at Yorkville, Toronto might be up next....

    again, thank you.

    So is this something where we could send you a picture and you make the card?

    I really like the Sketch Style! Those are all beautiful!

    I hooked up with a gentleman when I was volunteering at the MOTO GP Race at Laguna Seca. He wants to go through my picture archive so that he can use them for some paintings. If and when that ever happens, I'll be sure to post.

    I just need to get some stuff pulled off my new camera. Once I get a new Computer, that will happen. 'Til then, they will probaby stay on the card.

    Very nice work: I really like your "illustration" drawing style!!!

    I've done a drawing of a 1959 250GT TDF on my thread you might like ;-)

    Cheers!
