9781845846527: Racing Colours: Motor Racing Compositions 1908-2009

"In many respects it is a book unlike many others. It is an individual, as all good books should be. It is quirky, eclectic, eccentric even, but in a world intent on reproducing that which has already been regurgitated I personally felt the need for something a bit more idiosyncratic, I can only hope that you agree!" - Simon Owen

A well known artist specialising in racing car subjects, the late Simon Owen's detailed, expertly executed work conveys the life, vibrancy, the essence and passion of motorsports and racing cars, like no other.

From his often small watercolors, rich in color and tone, to digital art and composition, Simon's work is a visual feast for lovers of automotive art and motorsport. Over the last few years, Simon had worked on developing a series of computer-generated images, focussing on individual racing cars and their liveries. Seventy seven of these images have been compiled to create this stunning book, and each is presented with a relevant quote from a legend of the motor racing world.

Along with these digital artworks, this book represents a chance to gain a rare peek into the artist's working methods, revealing some of his developmental working methods and showing how the digital images were constructed.

About the Author:

Musician, lyricist and songwriter, the late Simon Owen’s talents were many. But it was his love of racing cars, initiated during his early childhood, which developed into the visual art forms he loved – from precise and delicate watercolours, progressing to the world of computer-generated digital art. To all those who knew him, Simon was a perfectionist; this outstanding book represents the peak of his work, the coming together of a great skill and the artist that was Simon Owen.

Review:

"A superb tribute to the art of the late Simon Owen" - Classic & Sports Car (UK)

"Stands as a tribute to [Simon Owen's] work ... The images [in this book] on their own would be striking, but each is accompanied by a pertinent quote from leading racing personalities. They are short, but often revealing." - Motor Sport

"a wealth of lovely images based around race colours/roundels" - Octane

"A touching tribute" - Classic Cars



"breathtaking" - The News Wheel



"An idiosyncratic offering, Owen's digital homages to iconic motorsport liveries from 1908 to 2009 are beautiful, as are the accompanying handpicked quotations from legends of the racing world. A must for your coffee table." - Total 911



"the images are fascinating and if not already dazzling enough on their own, are brought to life fully by the quotations printed alongside on the opposite page ... At times this will make you sad, laugh out loud or bring you greater insight into the world of racing and its personalities ... This is a beautifully crafted book that by its sheer simplicity brings surprising joy ... You'll want to read it again, then go back once more to your favourite quotes -and be sure to write down those page numbers as you'll discover many." - Norm Mort - Freelance



"an excellent book that should prove inspirational for anyone with the slightest interest in our sport." - Vintage Racecar/Vintage Roadcar

"a nice and beautifully-produced book by Veloce Publishing written by the late, Simon Owen ... Recommended." - tkc (Totalkitcar)
