1966 Chevrolet Corvette Two Door Coupé Graphite
Graphite pencils on 18X24 Fabriano Uno, 140 LB Hot Press Watercolor Paper, 40 hours.
This watercolor paper, hot press as it is, just is not smooth enough. I am happy with the drawing, but not really with this paper. So i am going to follow Lyle462’s advice and pick me up a pad of 100 LB bristol board paper next time i go to Dick Blick’s.
I sure do love the old Corvettes! This will be my last major car drawing for a while. I will be sketching some ideas for a surrealistic painting that i have in mind. In fact, i have several in mind. But i will break it up with some car sketches here and there.
Here is the reference photograph i shot of this beautiful little car at the St. Louis Corvette Car Club Car Show in St. Louis County, Missouri, on May, 24th, 2009. [link]
