View Full Version : Medwyn's classic cars

We had a great classic during the summer - it was a yellow MGB GT called "Charlie". Had a really great time driving it along scenic roads but due to our lifestyle we decided to sell it. This painting is my tribute of Charlie (and I gave a printed copy to the new owner too) - so long, our friend!

Dad blast it, you're on the wrong side of the road again!

Nice work. Really feels like pastels. Love the sharp articulation of the car. . . and a lot of the surrounding area. Looks like that windshield took a lot of careful thinking to keep it from spinning off the road with all that detail.

Ahhh! Fresh from Abingdon...
Reminds me of a Sales Ad of the time.
Neatly detailed, like the surrounding countyside as well.
Had one as a teen, always working on it, sold it and bought
a 61 Jag XKE...the three SU carbs drove me crazy!
Nicely done,

I like it! The reflections on the windshield look crazy!

Steve, my dad had a pale yellow convertible E-Type! What a lovely car;)

Great :) I love the contrast between the sharply and realistically realized car, and the more whimsical (but still well implemented) take on the countryside - it draws focus, along with it's bright colour, to the real focus of the work.

The car is a beauty as is the countryside, a lovely scene and painting :)

Nice illustration! Welcome.

Thank you :)
This is another one from Abingdon - a Magnette this time. Whoever had it before told me this is such a bad car, one of them told "Why don't we just push it off the cliff?"
Anyway I like how it looks :D
My wife was strict about the "picnic corner" so I chose one of my favourite Scottish blanket and some more on it.

A lovely day with a vintage car on an enchanting place. A nice way to "rewind" past time ... Fine image.

Thank you for your kind welcoming words! In return I try to overdose your senses of classic cars here :)
This one is a winter-Moggie - my wife ordered something like this so I decided to do some snowy background for the Minor.

I like your paintings, don't know all that much about cars, but I like the design of the car in the 2nd painting:o
The last one is nice too reminds me of those old postcards we used to have;)
