I just heard that Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso beat Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel and McLaren’s Jenson Button in a close fight to win the Formula 1 German Grand Prix at Hockenheim. So here is my humble artistic contribution to the Ferrari team.
Many years ago I made a Formula 1 watercolour painting based on a photo I had found in a magazine. In reality it was representing a Ferrari team, but at that time, I did not fancy having so much red on a painting and changed the colours to yellow and blue, having just some red stains here and there.. This was the result
Nowadays I have only a small photo of that painting. The original is hanging in an office in Germany, or at least it was bought to this aim. I made a good scan of that photo and I am now able to sell prints of it. But as I found that photo recently, I thought, well, now I am reading to have more red on it, and I made this second version, this time really featuring the Ferrari team. Well appropriated for the today victory!
But this is not my only contribution to Ferrari. Some days ago I was working on my new artist website www.mikidegoodaboom.com, gradually adding artworks to the galleries “Fun Fun Fun!”. More precisely, I was building up the sub-gallery “Fun with Turtles”, a little collection of artworks featuring turtles which I created some years ago for the World Turtle Day. And I don’t know what crossed my mind, but suddenly I thought that I had to paint a Ferrari Turtle! I probably thought that these lovely animals are a little bit too slow for our fast times and need some extras… 🙂
