A new truck!

The global Urban Sketchers group on flickr has weekly themes.  This week it is “trucks”.  What better place than the LeMay – American’s Car Museum to sketch! I have several sketches of trucks in older sketchbooks but it was good to have a new one to post for the theme.  There were many vintage trucks from which to pick but I liked this 1934 Ford tow truck as it created more of a scene with the mannequin and dog.  It was part of the “Tools of the Trade” exhibit.

I never got off the top floor, though I have been there before and wandered the whole place.  There was also a BMW exhibit and this little Isettra was the weirdest car on the floor!

The back shelf had a wind up key, which I assume is an in-joke.

We shared sketches, had our group photo and shared lunch together.  A couple Museum docents came to look at our sketches, too.

    It’s a treat to see your work. You really captured your subjects in their surroundings. You seem to know just what to leave in. Beautiful work.
