I’m a big fan of 1950’s motorsport – huge in fact! And my favourite car from this era is the Maserati 250F. This painting features Fangio driving the pants off the Maserati at Monza in 1957. I worked up this watercolour just using back and white paint as the reference image was an old atmospheric black and white photo. Really pleased with the end result and think I should do a few more black and white paintings like this as it got a lot of positive feedback.

I sold the original of this painting and the new owner shared this photo of it hanging proudly in his house. He emailed to say “It’s a fine atmospheric picture with a period feel to it that’s a pleasure to own”…. great to have fantastic client feedback like that.
