Cuba's classic cars

Our sketchers and kindred spirits experience Cuba's classic American cars up close and personal, with a surprise morning tour of Havana in beautifully restored convertibles. Oh yeah, we drew them, too.

  1. That last drawing - WOW! If only I were as good as drawing cars as I was at finding the best car finance deals in Australia haha! I would love to retire on drawing alone…

    1. That is Veronica Lawlor drawing the car. She's a very well known illustrator, teacher and author in New York. It was great fun and inspiration having her on the trip.

  4. Those are some really flashy cars. Not everybody will ever have a chance to sit in a car like that much less take their leisure to draw them too! You guys look like you really had fun!

  9. It's really exciting to go on tours for making sketches. It's a good idea to get close and personal with a thing to make a sketch of it and that you people have done it. Honestly, these classic cars are simply awesome in look. It come up as one of my dream cars. I would love to have such a car in future. You all are making sketches! great..!
