I suddenly found I was enjoying these freehand car drawings and I've been to a few other auto events taking pictures.
Here are some of the results!



Thanks
Brian

Brian,

Fantastic.  Looks like you've got a new career - drawing cars for folks at auto shows.

I may be wrong here, is the bottom car an old Studebaker? It reminds me of one a friend had.

Great drawings Brian. Love the styling of the old vehicles.  :smitten:
Cheers, Val

Thanks MEA, Val,
And yes that's a Studebaker but not being a car guy I have no idea what model or year it is!
I'm getting the idea that motorcycle paintings are like portraits, they are nice but if it isn't your specific bike you aren't going to buy it.
Cars though, unless they are customized might be different.
Anyway it passes a couple of hours drawing them.

 :twothumbs: :twothumbs: :twothumbs:  You're GREAT at drawing cars, Brian!  Too bad I can't get you to draw my 76 Jaquar XJS coupe
I had over 20 years ago.  Gold metallic with spoiler, fully loaded, with beautiful rims and a gleaming '65 Chevy conversion 8 cylinder engine.  I was a young reckless teen then (just kidding).  Once in a while I drove it to school and all my students ran out to the parking lot.  If I could, I would draw and paint it, but I have to be satisfied with an old photo.  My first wheels was an old army surplus jeep my dad got for me when he worked for the U.S. Navy.  That was when I was 15.  When I was 17 I drove to the Univ. of Hawaii over a mountain pass and he thought he would get me a heavier car that wouldn't overturn with the updrafts from driving along the mountain- a '55 Buick two-toned sedan.  I loved that car that stuck to the road!  He was a car fancier and worked for Ford-Mercury parts dept. back then and drove a Mercury Sun Valley, but his last car was a '62' Mercury Cougar that my mom would floor the pedal! Woo Hoo!

 :clap: BRIAN, I will be happy to post the photo of me and my Jag- when I get home on Saturday.  Princess Diana had a similar model and I've been looking for a front photo of that beauty- to no avail.  There has not been another model like it, though it was customized with front and side spoilers, a hardwood steering wheel and gear shift,  front and rear stereo speakers, leather bucket seats.  I bought it at the Swap Meet for $7,000 from a guy who had a few too many classic foreign cars and Harley-Davidson motorcycles and was a little hard up on cash.  It had a low 70,000 miles on it.  No wonder; it got 9-12 miles a gallon.  I swear when I get to heaven I must have a spiffy car waiting for me and not a skateboard a millionaire minister was handed when he arrived at St. Peter's gate!  Well, I spent another $10,000 on it and my husband was ready to sell me.  Nah.

MEA,  growing up is the pits for oldsters, but you wouldn't know anything about that.  I can't handle another ride on the Zodiac rubber raft my friend and I did not too many years ago.  I plan to do water aerobics in the hotel pool instead.  :P -Liz

Sure send it Liz, there are several front views of XJS's if you Google "XJS images", maybe I could work it out with one of your pictures!
A friend of ours in San Diego had an XJS V12 that was super looking but she eventually gave it up due to the maintenance costs, she did offer it to me and I did consider it, but common sense prevailed!
Another friend in Maryland bought an old XJ V12 and was grafting that big engine into a 32 Ford Hot Rod the last I heard from him!!

Have fun and keep enjoying life.
Brian

Here it is, Brian!  I couldn't find a front face.  It had single lens of the older 70's models, and custom design I told you about, a shiny chrome engine and beautiful rims on jumbo tires I spent my spare time cleaning and polishing. Crazy.

 :cheering: YES, YES, MAL & VAL!!!  It really was a beauty! 


I was first spoiled with the '55 Buick hard top turquoise and white coupe (not sedan).  Much later when I was married, one of the cars I really enjoyed was a Honda Civic hatchback with stick shift which I didn't get to keep very long.  When my youngest daughter, a lefty, couldn't pass her driver's test twice, I had to give it up for a Mercury Tracer automatic shift.   :(   Such is life. ~Liz
