On May 1st 1994, I was out half the day at an open karate competition. Being from Tae Kwon-Do where you can only do touch contact it was going to be a tough competition. It was the first competition my grandma came to watch and I pretty much had my nose broken. Great. Thanks for coming Grandma. All those easy wins and you couldn’t show up to those lol.
On the way home I was anxious to catch up with the Grand Prix. I don’t know why we didn’t set it to record. Now I’m glad we didn’t. As I sat on the couch the news came on and gave me the biggest shock of my life. The rest is history but even watching the first part of this video I have learned something I didn’t already know. Senna used to live in England. Fancy that.
Doesn’t even resemble him.
I’m hoping a book I’m reading called Sketching in 5 Minutes will help me. I’m determined to draw the Leafs next. Inspired as always by Jill who is doing great with portraits and Nora McPhail who rocks the cafe sketching.
I know there are guys out there who only paint cows and even only use one medium, say oils, but it really is good to experiment and broaden your skill set.
If Senna had retired and turned to art, I bet he would have learnt it all. He was a master of focus, passion and commitment. His legacy will forever live on.
The Monaco Grand Prix is today. The track is really wet. I hope it’s not going to be a huge pile up. Visibility is terrible and there’s hardly anywhere to overtake.
I found an amazing artist who paints famous actors. Here is the late ever beautiful Princess Grace of Monaco:
I can’t draw Princess Grace or a grand prix car but while I’m watching I’ll attempt a yacht since that is a big status symbol of Monaco.
Basic, loose but watery looking which is appropriate and convenient 😝
I’ve been to Monaco twice, once just a week before the gp with an au pair family. Up the hill in Menton we could have seen the track but no one takes kids to Monaco during gp week. I bet prices jump too. I was too young to think like that though. I can chuckle about it now.
Anyone tried to paint a car before?
The eyes aren’t as wonky as usual but the ears aren’t the same size so that makes up for it lol. Still shocked this young driver is no longer with us.
