Some argue these are illustrations, but since I painted them, I reckon they are paintings. If they are published, which many have been, then they are created to illustrate a story, their value then is well, debatable.

I have painted many and various types of transport, from aircraft, boats, cars and motorcycles. These images show just a few examples of the type of work that I do. I enjoy tackling most automotive subjects, that is anything with an engine.

I always paint in watercolours and still use the old fashioned paint brushes, pen and pencil method. No computer enhanced drawings or paintings, no hi-tec wizardry. So, it is a slow and painstaking process but hey, life’s to good to rush through it anyway!
