Hi John….thanks for your comments. Some drawings you just really enjoy doing….this was one of those. Regards
This is superb! Awesome image of Carroll, car, and logo! Hope you get a bundle for it…you are selling it, aren’t you? LOL
Thanks Bill. Raised white letter tires and chrome…..always good! Thanks for your kind words. [may just frame it and hang on my wall for a while]
Fantastic drawing Kevin, Great detail
Thanks Peter. I enjoyed this one right from the start. Would be nice to have the real thing parked in my driveway, but not in the budget yet. Regards
i am in tears….. Holy ! ! !
Hey Rahul, Finally finished it. Now I have to find subjects for the next one. Working on an idea though, so will see what developes. Hope your drawing is going well too. Regards
Congrats on your feature kevin! ! !
Thanks Rahul. Yes, being featured is a huge pat on the back and respectfully appreciated. Now…back to the drawing table.
Simply grrreat! – John
Thank-you John. I enjoyed every hour spent on it. Regards
What a fantastic composition Kevin! Congratulations on your well deserved feature. This is my dream car, and one of my favorite cars to photograph! I especially like your style of shading and of how lusterous and reflective the paint appears to be. I am sure if O’le Carroll saw this he would have a tear in his eye or two.
Thank-you Steve, appreciate your comments. Cool cars and a camera…..happy place! Regards
I love it. I can’t really say anything else, this is just beautiful. It is so clear that you have put your heart and soul into this drawing. A favourite for me. It’s just amazing. Wow.
Thank-you Andrew. It’s easy to put your heart and soul into something that you love. That shows in your work too. Regards
