Miles Waterhouse - Concise Car Sketching
one of the exercises is to trace (i know, cheating!) a picture of a car,
and try to just concentrate on simple reflections to describe its form. V. useful!
And as well as that, there was a study of another random internet photo (not traced!). I was again trying for a more painterly style, much like my last helicopter attempt, but possibly may have slightly over-egged the pudding.
Well, its all about learning and i guess the most important thing i've (re)learnt recently is the importance of the initial drawing. It can take a while to sort it out, and it doesnt look showy or impressive, but once thats done everything else is so much easier. And it means i could potentially redo the same drawing in any number of different styles. In this case it was painterly scribbles, but it could have just have easily been a slick monochrome airbrush affair.
Undoubtedly theres going to be more of this learning to draw cars malarky, but in the meantime its Dr.Sketchy tomorrow - a very welcome break indeed!
