Mini Cooper

I think Mini Coopers are the cutest little cars ever!  I would love to have one, but there is no way a family of six would ever fit in one so I’m stuck with a minivan as my ride.  DH has promised when the kiddos start leaving the nest we can trade our current camping rig of an F250 Supercab and Trailmanor for a big motorcoach and a Mini Cooper as a tow vehicle, cool!!!  In the meantime, I’m trying to convince R1 or R2 that a Mini Cooper woud be a neat first car (so Mom can ‘borrow’ it).


In case you’re counting, this is day 48 in my insane 75 Day Direct Ink Drawing Challenge (all are blogged under the category Inky Fingers).  The idea is from here–Brenda Swenson’s 75 Day sketch Challenge.  I’m not really sure if all my drawings count since I got really bored, really fast with plain ink line drawings on white paper and decided to use background watercolor washes.  I also went with a lot of watersoluble pen and ink washes in the drawings themselves.  This way I get double the practice- drawing in ink only then playing with dissolving the ink into tones.  Ah, phooey, who am I kidding!!  The drawings were BORING in line only, putting in some tone by doing ink washes was the only way to keep going with this challenge.  On a positive note, this is a great  experience and a wonderful skill to learn for fast sketching.

  1. It’s still ink line drawings. I think you are still in the ballpark on these. I like mini’s too but doubt I’ll ever have one. I like cars with cheap repair bills so that usually meants stick with cheapo cars.
