Old Jalopy


A grand old tourer Dixie, lovely drawing.

Thank you Tessa, I do appreciate your comment. I thought it looked great parked outside the wooden garage, unfortunately the garage did not come out so good so I left it off. Might add it into another attempt.

What wonderful character you have given this fine old car Paul.

A good drawing of what I imagine was a difficult subject. For me anyway!

Thank you Carole and Louise for your kind comments. I don’t find vehicle etc difficult to draw or paint but I do find portrait so hard. I suppose we all have areas we find more difficult, I’m sure that I could not do some of your work as easy as you make it look Louise.

Must have missed this. I love this kind of car, they are packed full of character, unlike today's 'all-the-same' look.

You are right Lew, the old car had so much about them, that they seem to be individual, even cars like the Minor 1000, Fort Popular etc. Love and miss them.
