Gordini Maurice Trintignant 1953
This is Maurice Trintignant in its Gordini at the Reims Grand Prix in 1953. The drawing/painting is oil pastel (Pentel) on Stonehenge paper.
This is the the corresponding sketch that I made on drawing paper. I like to draw on drawing paper because it's easy to erase pencil marks. I must admit to using a proportional divider (it looks like a two-ended compass) to get my proportions kinda right. I also use a rolling ruler to get the angles kinda right.
By the way, I can guarantee you that the the fourth wheel is not visible in the reference photo. So no, there's no missing wheel in my drawing.
