Unveiling my Lewis 2019 F1 world title celebration piece ‘Still I Rise, #6’. I was actually commissioned for this back in April, there’s confidence for you! It’s a challenge when I paint so much of ostensibly the same subject, to keep doing something different. Something that I think I achieved with the composition of this piece.
And as well as my now ubiquitous home-made neon paint, I’ve also been playing with micro prismatic beads, the stuff they use to make road signs reflective. It doesn’t really come out in photo’s as the light refraction angle is really specific and this piece will never see a gallery wall, but I’ll be adding it wherever is even slightly appropriate for the foreseeable. It might work in embellished pieces… possibly… I’ll experiment.
