Suffer For Art

I knew I had to make the nine close-up drawings of my Morris Minor before it went off for it's annual service, MOT and urgent attention to a  petrol leak. 

I needed the watercolour sketches so I could begin experimenting for my next painting 'Momento Mori' of which they will form an important part of the nine canvases

Although it was freezing cold weather, I steeled myself to make the studies, one a day, until they were finished. Each one took about 90 minutes  and I also got Hazel to photograph the same views so I had further reference.

The car passed it's MOT and the leak has been fixed, so I'm hoping to drive it a bit more in this, its 90th year.
