More cars

More sketches of street-parking in Bath, ignoring the buildings, just strings of cars snaking up, down and around the contours (previously). Cars are ubiquitous, a familiar part of urban scenes, so I’ve been trying to get them right; the angle of the wheel arches seems key, and it’s important to make the shadows underneath the cars strong to help ground them. Reflections on the windows and shiny body-work next!

    I like this. Drawing one car is hard, drawing a row of them and getting them right is impressive. I have been meaning to practice drawing cars – the ones I do are pathetic and ruin every drawing they are in. Trouble is, I can never get excited enough about drawing cars to actually do it…

    Thanks Viktoria, I’m not that excited about cars, but they are everywhere and a good challenge to draw. A bit like oversized beetles; shiny and symmetrical but full of curves… Ed
