Just completed this latest commission of Danny "Magoo" Chandler at the 1982 Motocross des Nations in Wohlen Switzerland, the year he won all 4 moto's of the Trophee and Motocross des Nations.
This was commissioned by Youthstream and the FIM to be awarded postumusely at the upcoming Motocross Des Nations in Denver Colorado as The FIM recognise his lifetime achievements.
Painting is 20" x 30" acrylic on canvas. One of the most interesting aspects was painting the crowd in the background, suggesting them but not too much detail, so they wouldn't detract from rider. I painted the crowd using an artists sponge, so as to give softer muter edges.
Look forward to hearing your comments and more of my work can be seen at www.robkinsey.com

The use of a sponge was very successful in letting the rider have sharp edges and stand out. Nice work!
