“Napier Car” ink drawing 10″x 14″ ©Gail Niebrugge
Here is the finished drawing. Unfortunately I have no idea the make and model of this classic. While doing research for paintings I’m looking for shape, light and shadow, and interesting lines and I become absorbed in these details. This vehicle at this angle had it all. Another reason I don’t have all the information is that I’m not sure when or if I’ll use my research, I’ve used reference gathered 15-30 years ago and my journal notes are sometimes not as complete as I need. I guess I think I’ll be able to figure it all out later. So, enough excuses……anyone know anything about this vintage car? Notice the steering wheel is on the right side, they drive on the left side of the road in New Zealand, it takes awhile to get used to for those of us who learned to drive on the right.
