Citroen Ami

It's been a while since I did any sketching so I thought I'd do a quick one this lunchtime. I'd spotted this car on the way home the day before and thought it would be fun to draw. I hadn't planned on it starting to pour down with rain though...

The splotches make it look rather old and beaten up but it was actually in very good condition.

I'll be off to Denmark for a few weeks soon - I'm looking forward to sketching the interesting architecture already.

Hello Stefan,
I recently added this blog as a link on my own blog "Slotty Salad". I build slot cars from vintage parts.

Right now I'm working on an H.R.G. Aerodynamic from a 1950's wooden kit.
I saw one of your drawings of Stirling Moss's Kieft at Goodwood, that's how I found out about your stuff. I draw too:

and have worked in animation here in Canada. Anyway, nice stuff! Cheers, All the best, Tom.

Thanks Tom - for the comments and the link. I'll have to have a look at your slot car page - what with christmas coming up - I've got a feeling father christmas might be bringing a slot car set this year.
(It's not for me of course - it's for my son. I may have a go though :)
