the dancing pair in the previous post's drawings.
I made the sketch at the event and coloured it in at home. I never know whether putting the colour in will be a good thing so I scanned it before I went ahead with the red pencils. I actually like both versions. So, here's the before and after. Which do you prefer?

They are both awsome ! Paul prefers the red one a tiny bit more, I love the little dog and how you have caught him peeking, and we both can't get over the detail you have gone into, it is stunning, thank you again Elaine & Paul x
I'm loving the RED! And the way your drawing makes the car have such personality...
Always a pleasure to look at your drawings!
And I do prefer the colored car, it has more personality.
i like both too, but i am a fan of color, and the red really makes it pop! ;)
Instantly recognisable as a MKII Zephyr or Consul. Both versions look so different!
Red. Without a doubt.
I like the red better too. It's such a beautiful, old-looking red! Very appropriate for a vintage car. Otherwise, both sketches are beautiful.
I love the red! Your work is amazing. - Erin
They're both nice, but I definitely prefer the red. I love color!
I definitely agree. The red is the better one. It's always a tnese moment, though, when you add the colour. Will you spoil the sketch? The are definitely drawings where I should not have added colour.
Elaine and Paul, you are welcome. The car was just beautiful and the little dog made it even more dawable. So glad you like it x
Thanks everybody. I appreciate all of you taking the time to comment.
Oh, and Elaine and Paul, I'm sure you noticed (with it being your pride and joy) I didn't leave enough room for the second M. Durgh!
i love popping over to see your blog. it always amazes me and i adore your work. definitely the red. a splash of color becomes candy for the eye!
Red!! Love this - quirky and fun. Great car. Love the dog.
We did notice, but there was no way I was going to mention it ! You got so much detail in on all the other areas of the car, what does an "M" matter, besides which you made me look lovely and thin in my pictures, and for that I can forgive anything lol , Elaine & Paul x
Im not sure if you do but ,If you ever decide to sell the drawings would you let me know please, my email is email@example.com. Thanks again for choosing us xx
Elaine, I've emailed you.
