Digital artist Phil Ward’s compositions include Le Mans 1963 and Sir Stirling Moss at Goodwood in 1961. This automotive artwork starts with photographs and finishes with compositions more akin to paintings. Phil grew up in the 1950’s hanging out at Dragway 42 but his real passion was German and Italian sports cars/racing – anything with Borrani wire spoke wheels! After retirement in 2007 he embarked on his art adventure. Ward began applying digital brushes, textures, filters and photo-painting techniques or what he calls a "digital artist palette" to create his compositions.
Recently Ward added vintage racing yachts and thoroughbred horse racing to his portfolio. Phil says this has been very exciting to explore these new compositions filled with bow waves and spirited equestrians.
