A couple weeks ago I was down at the Quebec City port and parked near the Louis Jolliet excursion boat dock sat a great little car, painted up as a race car. I don’t know if it was really a race car or why it was parked there. But I plucked my camera from my sketching bag and took a photo of it.
Yesterday I couldn’t go out sketching and I remembered that car. I brought the photo of it up on my computer and I sketched it. Though I’m not an accomplished sketcher, I have to say that I like the sketch better than the photo. Just a bit more personal I suppose, and now I know this car better than my own. Ain’t she cute? Are cars the ultimate ‘urban sketch’?
