Alfa Romeo Monza Racer – Winning Laurels
Alfa Romeo Monza racer fine art painting of a winning Alfa at the Goodwood Revival titled ‘Winning Laurels’. The engine was still pinging as it cooled when the sketch for the painting was made in an effort to record and capture the moment along with enigmatic shaddows.
An original oil on canvas 24 inches x 36 inches and limited edition prints inspired by a photo I took at the Goodwood Revival when the winning car had just been parked in its garage with Winning Laurels left hooked on the radiator cap as the engine cooled in the Paddock.
About the artist
Martin Allen is a London based emerging artist. 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.
Martins’ work was also shown in the ‘Soho Scandalous’ exhibition at Blacks Club in London along with the The London Fashion Show with Runway-Gallery.
