Mercedes Convertible


8/3/21 Mercedes convertible spotted in Maple Leaf

This ‘80s vintage Mercedes is one of my favorite convertibles. I think it belongs to a visitor in our neighborhood, not a resident, as I’d never seen it before. I tried to mix verdigris with lime to capture that particular vintage shade of cool green, but I didn’t quite get it.

Halfway through the sketch, the owner came out, and I was afraid he was going to drive off, but all he did was get something out of the trunk. It’s funny – I was standing just across the narrow street, yet he never noticed me. Maybe it’s like when I’m feeding the jays: If I stand very still, I become invisible.


  1. Nice ride!!! I love the color and can imagine riding in that car with the wind blowing through my hair. Funny that he didn't notice you sketching...but so many people are caught up In what they are doing so that they are oblivious to all else.
