Purple Bentley

Yikes, the color is not what I had in mind with this sketch. The source photo, which I took at a local car show, shows the old Bentley as purple, but it was beneath a large grove of huge trees that cast the shadows on the fenders. Mmmmmm, I don't think the color worked particularly well, so next time, if there ever is a next time with this ol' gal, I'll use watercolors instead of pencils.

  1. This is so amazing in so many ways. Your Bentley has such personality...the angle is so fun and so is the color!

  2. This auto as you captured it has such a unique presence, great job!! I love the head-on view!
