Rolls Royce, Spirit of Ecstasy (2019)

A famous icon

The Spirit of Ecstasy, Silver Lady, the Flying lady and Eleanor: all different names for the well-known female hood ornament of Rolls-Royce automobiles. She represents one of the most luxurious car brands on the market since 1911, and after all these years she has become a famous icon herself.

This painting shows Eleanor flying off into the Mediterranean sunset. Blue sky is reflected on top of the bonnet and you can see the reflection of the warm streetlights in the classic Rolls-Royce grill. When you look closely, even the Monte Carlo Casino is visible in the foot of the sculpture.

I am often invited to paint live at the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Monaco. While being in Monte Carlo, my photographer got the opportunity to take a beautiful picture of a Rolls Royce that was parked across from the Monte Carlo Casino. When I saw his photograph, I just knew I had to create a painting based on this. Since driving around Monaco in a Rolls Royce on a long and warm summer night is the perfect subject for an artwork.

I worked on this painting during several national and international events. The painting went with me to the Concours d’Elegance at the Dutch palace Soestdijk, I worked on it during the British Race Retro event in Stoneleigh, it had an exhibition in the centre of London, and of course it joined me last year to the F1 Grand Prix of Monaco.
