Maserati 4 CLT – Ink on paper

It’s ages since I did some “plain old” sketching, so I passed a coupe of hours over the week-end working on this picture of a Maserati 4CLT power-plant using ink on heavy watercolor paper.  I have to say it’s very satisfying to capture the essence of the subject using just line and some cross-hatching.  I was going to introduce some washes for color, but I think I’ll leave the lines and the white of the paper speak for themselves.  The Maserati 4CLT was the car Fangio (then an unknown quantity from Argentina) used in 1949 to burst onto the world motor racing stage with a flurry of wins at a variety of famous tracks including Monza!
