Drawing Cars



Soon after I began drawing cars in my journal, I got interested in taking it further
and I started digging up some old family photo albums to find old vintage looking cars.
I'm not sure about the name of this one but I liked the odd shape and the two door style.
Sometimes one thing leads to another when I'm drawing...

This one is also from my journal, a car I saw parked on my street.

Drawing the figure


I absolutely love drawing the figure in studio and every week for our drawing class
we had one or two models (male or female) to draw but this one I'm
posting was from my journal. The larger class drawings I'll have to take some
pictures to share those with you.

Drawing outdoors

I did this drawing in my journal/sketchbook for my drawing class this semester. This class was more advanced compared to the introductory class I did in my first semester. I enjoyed this class because I challenged myself to draw outdoors and on a more regular basis. Sometimes I gave myself a time frame, meaning I told myself I'm going to draw for an hour or less depending on how much time I had between classes. Drawing on campus gives me a little bit of everything, buildings, trees, people, cars etc. I found myself drawing a lot of cars in my journal which lead to drawing old cars but more about that another day! The drawing above was part of one of the many car parks on campus.

Contour Drawing

The semester is over! For some reason this semester I felt really exhausted, it
feels like my first year just flew by...yes I just completed my first year and I survived
the many readings, assignments, tight deadlines and exams. I'll post a little more on this
later this week and look out for some new sketch book things too.

The sketch above is a contour drawing of cars in a car park on campus.
