Bentley.

This Bentley, I believe from 1984-1990, called "Bentley mulsanne turbo R", was damaged by the ocean, during the hurricane Sandy. It was standing on our block for a longest time, elegant corpse with winged "B" on its front. Was wondering whats story its hiding, how it happened to be here, I didn't see it before. Every time I passed by, it stopped me with its mysterious loneliness, till I realized I have to draw it. I used ink and bits of Kuretake on Arches pad with hot pressed paper. Very hard to move ink on it, realized, not happy with this paper.

Brilliant work, despite the troubles with moving ink. What a gorgeous car and it is a shame that it was totaled by Sandy.

Looseart, Thank you very much! I would never know the real story behind it. :-)

Thank you very much, CrimsonLeaves, Sandy scraped not just our possessions but our hearts. Just today said hello to a guy, who during Sandy felt on wet steps in darkness and broke his little dog's spine and broke his hand. Their pain is ongoing. :(
