You don’t always see classic cars on the road. I mean old expensive ones that people decide it is too difficult or too risky to take their car out on the public road.
Then again it might happen and it’s a long way away from where I am. So going to Motoclassica over the last few days I tried to get as much ink down as I could in the time available. SO here are the cars I drew at the event, in order, including the people sitting on the train.
the guy in the black hat was much trendier than I drew him, he seemed late 20s and too old for his get up and his breakfast in a tetra pack! The man in the blue shirt was playing two handed iphone game, again too old for that. The guy with the umbrella was VERY cool with his yellow shirt and umbrella, The student went too school before I finished her, and the girl with her tight hairI had to draw!
1925 Rolls Phantom, one that a chaffeur drives. Bob was the friendliest bloke at the show, explaining every bit of the car to visitors. From my angle the wheel circles looked dark green but were actually black! The statuette on the hood , turns to allow you to open the hood!
NOt pleased with this one, there was a Pillar where the door was, but I wnated to draw it, but I think I lost a bit because of my decision, Ah serendipity!
This Rolls I liked the bottom half but then he opened the bonnet and I lost the top half……
I decided to try an angle from upstairs, whihc I expanded upon later
Day two I sat with Alissa Duke (see her site here). We both liked this one, lots of reflections so colour will be interesting later.
I had two hours to capture this one from above. Not sure how it comes out but I enjoyed the process, should have noted my lines better
Enjoyed this one even with lots of people living old dreams or wishes. everyone from young to old stopped in front of me to look and discuss this.
The Masrati are had a couch where one lady was sleeping so opposite her I sat down and drew this one
Only had 15 minutes to spare so ripped out the brush pen sat on the floor and scratched this one out…….
