My '66 Caddy out in the backroads during the Alberta Winter of 1971 I think. With those suburbanite winter tires that Caddy had on combined with its weight it had the traction of a 4x4. It was great at plowing through snowdrifts, some as high as almost 5 feet. No exaggeration!
It was a common occurrence that when visiting my brother at his farm that the road I came in on was drifted over after a couple hours of visiting and I had to take a run at the drifts to get through.
And of course I never could take a picture like a normal person, I had to trudge through the snow in the ditch up to almost my waist to take this picture. 👀
Just about finished with my first vellum rendering in probably close to 15 years. Seems I’m a bit more heavy handed than I used to be but I’m having fun! This one is for a friend of mine who was looking for an “Overhaulin” type rending of his first car, a 1966 Cadillac Fleetwood 75. I was so inspired when doing research that I decided to start with an acrylic painting first. It was actually easier to do the painting than this sketch, I’m not a fan of the various vellum pads I’ve bought so far. One has great tooth but markers bleed through and the other is perfect for markers but has no tooth, pastels will hardly stick! Now I’m on to some good old mi-tientes sketches.
