Volkswagen Kleinbus in a storm

It is so much fun to draw old cars, and now is the time to do it. In winter they are all hibernating in hidden places.

I found this guy parked in our street on my way home the other day. There was half a storm going on, and I wasn´t quite dressed for the occasion, but I managed to do a standing-up quick drawing (see below) without the sketchbook being blown away or rained on. Then into the warmth by the kitchen table, with a cup of tea, and watercolours. Voilá!

Turned out ok, I think, after nudging the right headlight into a more correct position. The poor fellow looked a little cross-eyed before that…
