Saab 95 V4 in Midsommarkransen

SAAB V4 in Midsommarkransen, May 2013

I have long been thinking about sketching some old cars around Midsommarkransen, since there are quite a few veteran enthusiasts around here. But you know how it is, I hurry by them on my way to and from work, and never seem to find the time to stop and sketch.

This evening, however, sunny and a bit windy and with not much else to do, I walked down to this Saab V4 that I have been keeping an eye on for a while. Kids were playing in the park nearby, birds singing, and not much traffic around. I had a perfect hour of calm, disturbed by nothing and noone (except a tiny dog that barked at me when walking by).

27 x 21 cm, Duke fude nib pen with Platinum Carbon ink, and watercolours, in Stillman & Birn Alpha Series sketchbook.

    Dessiner dans le calme, ça fait du bien, surtout quand il fait beau. Bravo pour cette belle voiture orange !

    Weren’t these just so delightfully quirky-looking? Really nice sketch.

    This is excellent – such character! I find it very difficult to do cars, myself.
