Truly beautiful!
I really like the Paris and Berlin car scenes, though you will now have to paint a London picture, of the time

Do you know which cars those are you painted?


OT We recently drove in a 1930ies Panhard Dynamic, and while i liked the art déco interior style i'm still not sure about the general impression.. is it ugly or beautiful?
Pictures of the 'Dynamic'

Thanks, Catfish. No I don't know the names of the cars... just generic impressions using photos I took at car rallies. And yes, I guess I should do London but that place just doesn't appeal to me in the same way.



My son pointed to an old Ford Popular exactly like this one yesterday as we sat waiting in the car; I often wonder what it would be like to drive something like this... I've been told that these old cars had such narrow tyres they were prone to "crab" sideways on cornering. I'd love to try out a Ford Anglia...

Was a nice photo of your son at ten, in that other thread.
I never drove an 'Anglia', but narrow tyres were used in lots of cars back then, even the E-types' ones were quite small compared to modern cars.. which now mostly look like puffed-up show-offers. Lots of design boasting and not much behind it.. i really like those older ones.
Going fast in older cars is a bit more challenging, but then you do not have to.

I bought a Triumph Herald 'Saloon' in England once, well worn (including the tyres - "(almost) new and (very) used cars distributors" lol), front engine/gearbox and rear drive, all the weight in the front.
When we left the ferry there was snow on the continent, in april. The 'Herald' was almost imposible to drive under those conditions. Accelerating would make the car break out at the rear immediately, so you had to constantly counter-steer and adjust, maintaining speed was impossible, while decelerating brought the car into tracks again. So it was a constant back and forth.. but i digress.

Really beautiful paintings!

Quit making me feel old, I've driven those vehicle types

Nearing completion... it helps to look at a painting on the pc screen like this, so as to spot the things that need further attention
