1898 Renault-Tilbury Car Sketch

A couple days ago I posted a sketch of the back end of a Renault car that putted its way through Paris in 1900.  When I look at it I see Mr. McGoo driving.

I got back to the museum yesterday and sketched the front end of that same car.  I regret that I did it too fast and drew the wheels too thin but, caveats aside, I think it’s cute as a bug.  Maybe I was channelling Mr. McGoo cartoons as I sketched.

  1. Beautiful sketch, Larry. What an elegant carriage/vehicle! Yes, I know it’s a car (grin). I think your accuracy in proportions is amazing and the colors are rich!
    Miss you in the sketching groups for ink, etc.

    • Hi Veronica! Thanks for stopping by and for your kind words. I miss seeing some of the art in the FB groups but I believe social media is for communicating (about art, methods, tools), not just posting sketches. Some seem threatened by that approach and it’s just not worth my time to deal with the pettiness.
      Thanks for missing me in any case (grin).

      Cheers — Larry
