    Watkins Glen 6 Hour 1971 finished painting

    Finished this piece, done with ArtRage 4.5.10 and an Intuos tablet. Done from photos that I took at the race and it only took me 45 years to get around to it.

    Beautiful! Really first rate.

    Love the way you blurred the crowd. Very effective.

    But who won? I've heard of a photo finish in racing, but not an illustrated one.

    Thanks, D Akey. Sad to say neither won. The Ferrari had qualified on pole with Mark Donohue at the wheel, but didn't finish due to a failure in the steering gear. The Porsche driven by Jo Siffert ended up second to the winning Alfa Romeo. They put on a good race though and these were 2 car/driver combinations that were giants of their era.

    Wow, that's a great picture. Must very satisfying after all these years to finally get it down on 'canvas' and re-live the moment.

    Thanks very much, I'm trying to get a bit looser with less important elements of compositions. For this painting, I tried taking a cue from two of my favorite illustrators, Michael Turner and Wilf Hardy.

    First off, I love Watkins Glenn. Second--- in a word-- fabulous!

    Really, I love this. From the cars to the people in the background, this is wonderful.
