Update time!

I've only done about half as much painting as I wanted to this week. There's always life getting in the way! Anyway here's the current status of both paintings.

With the Brough, once the paint for the sky had dried it looked slightly uneven, so another coat went on. Any blotchyness picked up by the camera are just a couple of bits where the paint has dried a bit glossy - that will even out when the varnish goes on.... I've started and nearly finished the grass. If it looks like I went to the trouble of painting every blade individually, that's because I almost did. It takes time to get it like this!

The work on the Daytona slowed a bit, but I've nearly finished with the underside, got the Daytona lettering done (still some work on the '675 triple' to tidy up) and started the forks. I had hoped I'd have done both wheels & the rest of the fairing by now, but there just aren't enough hours!

Daytona update

I have been mostly working the fairing for the last couple of days - it takes a few coats to build enough depth of colour. I'm just about done with the bottom half, apart from the lettering.

Works in progress

I'm getting a lot of visitors here on this particular post - to see the new stuff, click the banner at the top^^^^^!!!

Still working on the Daytona, and have started a Brough Superior SS80.

The Daytona is now getting on a bit, now I'm back concentrating on painting bikes instead of webwork! The rear wheel is looking quite convincing now. Still some bits on the rider to finish off, and I'm not sure of the upper background, I think its too dark.

Started sketching out the Brough a couple of days ago, Just got the sky done.
