Martin Peach has been involved with car and vehicle design for most of his career, and has channelled his enthusiasm for all things automotive into his latest creative venture which is painting images of cars, bikes, boats or anything with an engine, using acrylics on canvas or board.
From a background in design he likes to work to a brief, and enjoys the challenge of meeting a client’s individual requirements. This involves discussing the vehicle, why the owner has it, any history that is special to the individual, the size and colour needed to be compatible with where the painting is to be displayed, and any hidden details that can surprise the owner and his friends when they discover them.
Paintings are based on work developed from images that are in turn sketched out on a computer screen. The client therefore has a very good idea of the concept, even before brush touches canvas. The challenge then is to go further than the digital image with the special results that arise from using true art media.
