Welcome to the website of Steve Kidd Art

A life-long car enthusiast who discovered the joy of creating art and sharing it with the world rather than hiding it away in a drawer.

Whilst the majority of my art is automotive based due to my unhealthy car obsession it’s not exclusively only cars that I paint and draw.

Animals are another subject I find enjoyable to paint and draw. Trying to capture the essence of the character is a great challenge.

Portraits also are also quite the challenge.

It’s easier to put a piece of fur out of place on an animal and for it to go unnoticed. However the human brain is attuned to the face like nothing else and mistakes can be spotted immediately usually.

Whilst the vast majority of my art is created by me from my own subject choices I’m quite happy to sell it on to hang on someone else’s wall. I ran out of space years ago and it helps fund new art materials 🤣

The Blog page details recent works, showing progress shots and also how I go about creating the artwork.
