Something slightly Different – Marc Marquez on his Moto GP Bike.


A couple of weeks ago I was watching one of the Moto GP races on TV with my Dad, and one of the things we kept commenting on was how spectacular the bikes looked. Everything about them is impressive. We especially noticed the two Repsol Honda bikes driven by Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa. They were a fantastic mix of reds, oranges and yellows, which really stood out on the track. I immediately wanted to have a go at painting one. Before the race had even finished, I’d found a canvas, selected an image and started on an outline of Marc, number 93, on his Honda.

Although it’s of a similar subject to the work I normally do, it was still exciting to be painting something a little different. I got to work with a lot of colour, and try and improve my detailing. The image is so bold and impressive, and I really hope i’ve done it justice. I’ll post some progress photos soon to demonstrate how I achieved the final image and maybe I’ll have another go at painting some more bikes soon.
