A Vintage Car and a Glacial Norwegian Lake – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor and Ink

I had fun with this one.  It’s a combo of two photographs from Rozzi at WetCanvas.  The doors to the car were open in the photo and there were two guys standing on the running boards.  I left all that pesky stuff out.  Oh, and of course the car was black.   🙂

About James Bryant Conant

James Bryant Conant, the American chemist and educator, is known both for his role in the Manhattan Project — which developed the first nuclear weapons — and for his innovative tenure as president of Harvard University. Harvard had been a finishing school for the rich; Conant turned it into a world-class research university and created aptitude tests to choose students by ability. These tests became the basis for the SAT. He was born in Massachusetts in 1893 and died in New Hampshire in 1978.

    I still love the old trucks. I may have to do one! (Oh geez, can I tell you how many times I have left comments all over the blogosphere about how I “have to try one of those”.) Really cool how the texture of the paper shows through in this one.
