"LIGHTHEADED"

This painting of a Jaguar E-Type exhaust manifold was inspired by a visit to RS Panels in 2014.

It is a detailed study of a Jaguar E-Type racing manifold showing naturally induced colour hues on highly polished stainless steel. The effect is created from energies released within the engine which cause various surface oxides to form during a process known as "bluing".

Nature has beautiful shapes and colours, engineering can produce some excellent competition.
