Welcome to the Bob Spendlove Arts Website
Here you can find the latest information regarding commissioned paintings in watercolours.
Hi and welcome to my website
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and lets all hope for a Health and Happy New Year
I have been painting and drawing for most of my life. When I was five I can remember drawing a Fodens lorry at Primary school. Later I served an Apprenticeship with good old Joe Lucas and continued painting as a hobby in my spare time.
I have always been interested in classic cars and motorbikes so combining both hobbies was the natural thing to do.
All the work that I paint is commission based and a selection of these can be seen on the Gallery page.
So please enjoy spending a bit of time exploring my website.

Bob's Commission Paintings
Here's one of my latest commissions showing an E Type Series 1 and a 1934 Rolls Royce with a hand built Packward body outside the owners house.
It was interesting to paint these two such different vehicles side by side, such a contrast in style, shape and size. The E Types body contours court the light just right to show the fluid design, where as the Rolls Royce shows as a solid and majestic design.
The house was interesting to paint and I am very pleased with the reflection in the windows above the Rolls.
A very enjoyable painting to produce.
If you are interested in commissioning me to paint your classic car or motorbike please see the section commissions and phone me on 01952 412918 to discuss your ideas.
