Sunbeam Tiger Mark I Red – Original Print
I’ve owned many Rootes Group autos. Most were small, very odd, English 4-cylinder, 4-speeds. However, my favorite was the mighty BRG 65 Tiger 260.
When starting Velocity Fine Arts, I knew I had to kick off my first offering as a time travel tribute to my Carnival Red Tiger with its removable black hardtop. That Tiger also started down the roads in British Racing Green. However I liked Red, and it was completely transformed to my taste. You would not do that today so quickly, however, Tigers then sold for less than $4,000 in number 1 or 2 condition.
These are also hand drawn and then painted in Photoshop. It really allows me to zero in on details and then apply color with a multitude of custom digital brushes which support my creative style. When I illustrated the 260 engine and bay, I was able to zoom in tightly capturing the detail of even the wiring harness.
It’s a balance of detail and emotional attachment that I’m proud to offer for purchase in these original prints. If you share my Tiger blood, you’ll find these examples finely tuned.
