Portrait of David Coulthard by Donna-Marie Quick

Portrait of David Coulthard

Oil on canvas. 16X20inchs.
I love F1 and being as DC's my favourite driver, I had to paint him. To me this is the real DC, relaxing and chatting.

I have been selling my stuff in the last 3 years and am part of an exhibition in November but it isnt my main job,I actually work with people with M.S helping them to discover quality of life through art and craft projects.
I am however taking more time to produce art and I work 3 days a week and try to dedicate at least 2 days to creativity.

What part of England are you from? Did I say I was English? Its hard to get started depending on your age and time restraints, I have 2 boys 12 and 15 so now they are older I have more time. You do have a great talent, dont waste it, maybe join a class near to you and meet other artists and network, its great to talk online but in the flesh is better and meeting people that are like yourself is always great inspiration.

So I just had to look back at your other pieces and add another comment!! This piece is very different from most of your others in a great way. It feels very "painterly" painted. I also work from photos and have 2 different styles of the way I paint one is like this and the other is more simplified with less brushstrokes. I would definately say that this "painterly" style suits you and you are very good at it!!! Great work!

a stunning portrait, i don't enjoy F1 but i follow it when its on becasue my husband watches...so i agree this seems to be the real DC...the eyes are especially wonderful and the mix of light and shadow is very effective..I am a total novice so don't know how to get on in the art business...but i am sure you will do well...i have noticed this painterly word...but don't really know what it means....but i do know that you have a great talent.

I agree with Rosetta, 4* isn't enought that's why I try to correct it and give 5*; but may be it was a mistake with the computer? Anyway, very nice work.

I have noticed PopArt seems to get less comments than other forms of art, is it because it is thought of as a 60's thing or is there another reason?
Hello Graham,, love this very much dear. I'm not sure about PopArt and it's popularity , but I've ''sold'' many drawings,, more of a contemporary style,... view answer
