Nikki Lauda fine art portrait painting oil on linen

Niki Lauda fine art portrait painting – WIP

Firstly a huge thank you for all the feedback and ideas from everyone on r/formula1 at Reddit for my recent post of Gentleman Driver asking which Formula 1 Legend should I paint next. As promised in the thread the driver with the most votes would be next. Niki Lauda won and here he is sketched out in charcoal on linen and now ready for paint.

Watch this space to see the process and progress and see a oil on linen portrait coming together. If you have any questions or queries please post. I hope you enjoy watching.

If you like the Niki Lauda sketch you may also like Gentleman Driver my portrait of Graham Hill and the The Calm Before the Storm, my portrait of Senna or other petrolhead art here.
