English Classic Car – WIP

I hadn’t planned on doing any new post this week, but as it happened I started to work on this new illustration of this beautiful classic car. I have actually painted it before, but it was a part of another illustration where I had put together several classic cars, all English. And I have posted that illustration here below.

Now I am making this car in a much larger scale, this is one of the cars I really love. It looks very simple, but I think that is what is making it so beautiful. There is a lot of details that is sort of sticking out more if you make it larger.

In this illustration I am using Daler Rowney’s paper 20 x 16 inches, and in this image I have just finished the outlining with the ink.

I have not been doing any new work in a while, life has sort of kept me busy with other things. But having some time off work every now and again is good, and it’s an opportunity to reflect on what is important in life, well work of course is important but one should not let it RUN your life. There is a lot more to it than that, your job is of course bringing money and put foods on the table and a roof over your head, but it is just a fraction of what Life really is. We should live it to the fullest and piece in those little things that we enjoy doing in between all the stress and demands, that for some, our work is putting us under.

Well, I couldn’t write this post without adding a little wee bit of wisdom in there 🙂
