Austin A40 Somerset Saloon - Classic Car Greeting Card
This classic car greeting card features an Austin A40 Somerset Saloon. This classic British car was built but the Austin Motor Company from 1952 through 1954. This post-war years car was built when the company operated under the name "Austin Of England." This artwork was done for a competition where the entries were based on the same photo by Abbie Shores. Although the car in her photo was black, I looked at some of the vintage colors for the Austin A40 and decided to go with a two-tone red paint style. This is contrasted with a cool blue background that is a mixture of light that suggests movement. The end result is a fun view of a classic British car driving through a rainy night on the city streets somewhere in Britain.
I've said before I love the design of the classic cars of the last century - particularly the mid-century ones. The sweeping lines of the Austin A40 Somerset Saloon were definitely an inspiration for this artwork. I'd love to hear what you think about it and what drew you to the image on this particular classic car greeting card? Love old cars in general or do you have special memories of the Austin A40?
