oil on board 4x6in
“The Renault 4CV is a small French car built between 1946 and 1961. Intended by its creators to be a “people’s car”, it was inspired by the original Volkswagen Beetle and was the first French car to sell over 1 million units. Conceived during German occupation, the design team envisioned something suitable for the economically difficult years expected to follow the war”.
I finished painting this car just on time for offering it to my son, for his birthday.He is fond of cars even if I am not sure of his taste for this one; I had to struggle with all the small mandatory details.Now it is done!
