Remarkable artist who does photo quality airbrush paintings of hot rods

Click on images for the full size

Remember that I was taking these pictures at a bad angle so as to not let the artist know I was getting his images for free instead of paying for them. Turns out I was right, he doesn't have any full size images on the internet we can save for free to our computers for good wallpaper.
From a hot rod website:
"French artist, Guy Tempier, was a show revelation. He had an exhibition of paintings in the Chateau, and his work was stunning. A measure of just how good it was came when Herb Martinez purchased a piece for himself – “I just had to have it,” he commented. Guy delivers a photo/realist style of painting, and told us he works with acrylics on canvas and also uses an airbrush to get his soft hues and blends. He’s been painting for over 25 years, and initially started out illustrating nautical scenes before crossing over fairly recently into the hot rod scene. As you might expect, such quality work doesn’t come cheap, and the main paintings displayed – above A1 size – were priced between 2600 and 4500 Euros."
You can look at 2 car paintings here, and get a full size, but with an ugly huge watermark:
