As automotive artist, I specialize in painting cars. This is the very first human portrait that I have painted. Painting a person is a completely different challenge than painting a car. When you paint a car, you deal with smooth surfaces, sharp lines and lots of reflections. A human face is soft, textured and 43 muscles constantly work to give it different expressions.

Painting a portrait is more than just getting the proportions of the face right; you want to capture the essence of that person. In this painting, I wanted to show the personality of Hamilton and the calm confidence of a World Champion.

This painting went with me to several national and international events (e.g. Monaco during the F1 Grand Prix week).

This item is available as original painting and as limited edition giclee print. The original painting comes with a handmade frame and official certification. The giclee print is 50x50cm and it is a full-scale reproduction of the original painting, it will be numbered and signed by hand. The giclee print comes without frame.
