VSW: Rumpler Tropfenwagon, 4

Berlin is our city this month, with contributions from
two photographers, Rich Matheson and Eli Weisz.
The Rumpler Tropfenwagon is in the Duetsche Technikmuseum.
It was built between 1921-1925, but only 100 were made.

The Rumpler Tropfenwagon is SO OFF ON PROPORTIONS!!!
It needs to be about three feet longer, and so as it is it looks like a sister to the VW Bug! Very tough sketch with the various reflections and shadows… and I insanely tried to do them and got lost along the way.

This is the first time I’ve used Phthalo Blue straight, not in a mix.

Though my rendering of it is way off, it looks to be an early deco piece, as in Deco before it was known as Art Deco.  I really should give this crazy car another try!
