1963 Shelby Cobra
Painted to celebrate the iconic Shelby Cobra. I’ve been lucky enough to see the actual car in racing anger at Goodwood, where I go most years. This painting is the 1963 David and Oliver Hart Shelby Cobra at the 2016 Goodwood Revival based on a photo by Richard Huckett.
Artist Martin Allen
is a London based. Martin came to oil painting through a circuitous route, having drawn for most of his life and being largely self-taught he was eventually re-introduced to oil painting as a preferred medium to create his varied and diverse work. The methods he uses to paint are classic ones, using layered paint applications rounded off by oil glazes. These create, add depth and harmonise colours. He has shown solo numerous times at Goodwood, The Affordable Art Fair and others, been a finalist at the ‘London art Biennale 2019’, alongside various commissions including work for the BP Shipping collection.
