Artist's description:

An original Pencil drawing by Paul Stowe -

This was a very difficult project, and took me a very long time to complete. The grill on the from of the vehicle was a nightmare, as was the shadows in the windows, but most of all trying to get the people reflected in the front fender to look like people was by far the hardest thing I have tried. Whole project took about 40 hours, measures roughly 53X41cm and was drawn on locally sourced smooth Bristol Board type paper with traditional pencils 4H, HB and 8B - in fact a full 8B pencil was used!

There has been lots of confusion over the Model of the vehicle shown - the make was easier - yes it was an 'Austin" vehicle - but debate has raged (well not quite) over which model it was.
The first and most important clue was the registration number - in the UK you can search this number to find out the exact details of the vehicle, it will even tell you if the registration number has been moved onto another vehicle - in this case the registration number tells me that the car was 'born' (manufactured) in 1947 and had an engine displacement of 1125cc's and not much else! So if you then look at the cars produced just after the war - they only car being manufactured by Austin at the time was the Austin 10!

The drawing is being sold unframed to reduce shipping costs - however I can offer a bespoke framing service as required - just send me a message to discuss.
