The car was based on a Fiat 600 chassis, but could carry 6 pesons in a car hardly longe than the oiginal Mini of those days. It was beautifully restored.
I made the drawing in little more about than 10 minutes, the owner was about to leave, and it was getting dark.
The car and it's proud owner.

Businesstrip to Frankfurt, after standinng for 2,5 hours ins severe traffic jam (the motorway was totally blocked), we took the byroads. But My Collegue had to stop for a short sanitary stop, by chance at this stonebreaker factory. It took just two minutes to make the pendrawing, and maybe another 10 to paint; we were driving again by that time. Exlaines the wobbly lines.
Somewhere near Nentershausen.

He makes great watercolours of that region, the Biesbosch. The landscape there are mostly wide rivers and marshes, but very beautiful and peaceful. Exactly what he manages to convey in his paintings.
During the opening I saw an old powerfull B&W picture of a boat stuck in the ice. Shot a hazy photo with my camera.
I used a water soluble brushpen (Koi-Sakura) in this drawing: almost all the grey tones come from diluting the ink and spreading it, to achieve that cold hazy look.
Not convinced by the result, but I am getting there.
