Jim Clark – Indy 500 – Acrylic on canvas

Still on the “Jim Clark” theme, I’m using a Sepia technique for this image from the 1967 Indy 500 of Clark driving his “STP Oil Treatment Special” (which was essentially a Lotus 38).   He won there in 1965 and was second in ’66, however, in ’67 he retired with 35 laps left and was ranked 31st overall.  I’m using acrylics on a canvas panel – so far so good – hope to finish it tomorrow – that’s if I can resist the temptation to introduce “color” into it, (it always goes a little pear shaped when I start going too far with sepia) …. so we shall have to wait and see!
