“It’s Just a Ford, but it’s Chevy-Powered!”

7/8/12, Copic Multiliner SP pen, watercolor

That’s what it says inside the hood of this ’40 Ford. I’m usually intimidated by cars as a sketching subject, but this beautiful vintage vehicle caught my attention at a small Classic Car Show in my neighborhood. My skill with watercolors couldn’t capture the gorgeous gloss on the sensuously curved vehicle, nor could I draw small enough to indicate the tiny dice attached to the wheels (nor the larger, fuzzy ones hanging from the rearview mirror). But sketching it made me appreciate the loving care its owner has given it.
