F1 World Champion in 1975, 1977 and 1984. The only driver ever to have been champion for Ferrari and McLaren.
I would usually de-emphasise teeth on a portrait but there’s no denying them with Niki, or ‘The Rat’ as he was affectionately referred to – you don’t often see him smiling so that was a definite for this painting.
This is another 6×4″ little painting in my F1 heroes collection and number 69 in the 100 portraits in 100 days. The 100 days is up now but I’ll finish off the few I’ve got half done.
