My vector drawing of the Jaguar XK120 backed by a digital painting of a PD Windsor Castle image.
The Jaguar XK120 is a sports car which was manufactured by Jaguar between 1948 and 1954. It was Jaguar’s first sports car since the SS 100, which ceased production in 1940. Although capable of 132 mph the “120” in the name referred to the aluminium car’s 120 mph.
In 1949 the first production roadster was delivered to Clark Gable.
The digital painting, using Whistler’s Rainbow in DAP, is of the Norman Gate at Windsor Castle. This large and imposing gate at the foot of the Round Tower is the last bastion of defence before the Upper Ward where the Royal Apartments are situated.
