VSCC SeeRed at Donnington Park 2011 Report


VSCC SeeRed at Donington was certainly a feast for the eyes in terms of the variety of cars. I also got some painting done too.

Here's the demonstration piece so far. There is a real dynamic to this piece that really works. Mostly work to do on the crowd as I want to keep this piece loosely rendered.

After almost being blown away twice on Saturday morning I was kindly allowed to
se up in the Paddock Suite; where I managed to run a painting demonstration rather than hanging on to the gazebo.
