Camera And 1957 Ford Ranchero Graphite by Daniel-Storm Camera And 1957 Ford Ranchero Graphite by Daniel-Storm
Tower Camera & 1957 Ford Ranchero
Graphite pencils on 18X24 Canson, 90 LB Classic Cream Drawing, about 15 hours.

Thought i might take a shot at still life. I had trouble with this. My arm was killing me at times. Could not hold a pencil with authority. Then the camera took a lot of my light values away. Wah, wah, wah! I complain real good, don’t i? But in the end i am happy with this. Kind’a like a come back drawing, and i will get better as i go along.

The The car is a 1957 Ford Ranchero made by the Auburn Rubber Company. They made toy cars out of rubber until World War II, then switched to vinyl, but kept their name. The car is over fifty years old, and since it is vinyl it has warped a lot over the years, but to me that gives it more character.

The camera was my Dad’s. It’s a Tower 120 box camera, which was Sear’s version of the Kodak Brownie camera in the late forties and early fifties.

Here is a shot of the props. [link]
