On Nait Tous Artistes!

On nait tous artistes (We are all born as artists) is what is written on the sides of a tiny Fiat car owned by DeSerres, our local art store.  They have just opened a new store within walking distance of my house which was event enough but in the parking lot was this really amazing Fiat, it’s paint scheme that of a young child drawing herself I suppose.

Anyways, I just had to sketch it but it was far too cold to sit in the parking lot to do so.  I took a couple photos, came home and sketched it off my computer monitor.  I guess that disqualifies it as a true ‘urban sketchers’ sketch but this one deserves an exception.


Stillman & Birn Epsilon (5.5×8.5), Lamy Safari, Noodler’s Lexington Gray. Faber-Castell watercolor pencils provide color.

  1. Great job on the sketch, such clean and precise lines! It’s a very cute car, and a clever theme for an art store. I’ll bet you’ll enjoy visiting the art store often!

  2. Thanks, Tina. The tires are always the hardest part for me but the front one here turned out pretty good. I think the rear one is too small but at least it looks like it will roll. Some of mine don’t 🙂

    Cheers — Larry
