Felipe Massa
'Hot Lap'

Original Acrylic Painting       61cm x 46cm


This painting depicts Felipe turning into another scorching lap during the 2008 Grand Prix in Valencia. I have been priveleged enough to live in Valencia for a time and hopefully this picture can bring across the sapping and intense heat found in the mediterranean port during summer. The track itself with it's concrete walls traps the heat generated by the racing and means this GP can be one of the most physically demanding on the calendar. I used a lot of subtle washes and tones to get the effect I wanted which have proven hard to replicate in a print and so this is available only as the original. This painting was begun in Spain but developed more in England - a bit like me!
