Triumph TR3 Night sketch in very nice company chez Tazab, merci!

Once a year, in Clermont Ferrand, a group of sketchers get together to draw a classic car. I was lucky to be invited this year to sketch the lovely 1958 Triumph!

Some of them have special gear to sketch at night, like fancy glasses with LED light!

Finally I was able to draw a Lambretta, ( I hope my friend lambrettista.net from WordPress enjoys it, because I was thinking on him while drawing! ). In fact, I did 2: a LD125 and a L125. The others are Spanish competition bikes: A Montesa Impala and a 125 Lube Renn (half German).

The first choice, though, was the lovely spanish Ducati 24Hores 250cc, from 1950.

The Vicolo dell’Atleta (Alley of the Athlete) gets its name from the finding of a statue of an athlete there, around the middle of the 19th century. The statue, which is called Apoxyomonosand can be seen in the Vatican Museums.
