Hey everybody
I painted this portrait of my idol a couple of days ago, sorry about the shitty photo.

It's a 30" x 15" Acrylic on canvas. Let me know what you guys think...

Thanks
Neil

Cool , Neil ! How long have you been painting ?
Thanks Mike. I started painting at a very young age... my old man is a professional artist. But this is my first F1/automobile painting, and my first acrylic one. My next automobile painting should have a bit more detail, less abstract than this one...

wouldn't it have been great to see Senna vs. a mature MS...

Of course they did race eachother but Michael was nowhere near his prime.

I can't imagine we'll ever see a driver with as much talent as Ayrton Senna had. What he did with his shitty equipment was simply awesome.

I have to admit that my first reaction was, shouldn't the helmet be round?

sorry :(
No need to apologize... like I said this is my first F1/automobile painting. Therefor I still have to learn some of the perspectives and crops. Now that I look at it, I see the same thing you do... I am going to mess with it a little more today.

Thanks for the objective opinion...
