A Silver Suburban

8/24/12 Copic Multiliner SP pen, watercolor, Hand Book sketchbook
I’ve said and said again that I need to practice sketching cars, so I went out expressly for that purpose. Parked on Green Lake Drive North in front of a restaurant was this silver Suburban.
What is it about cars that’s so difficult to sketch? Unlike people and animals, they don’t have soft, organic lines. And unlike buildings, they don’t have straight calculable lines, either. Drawing books will tell you that cars and trucks can be placed in an imaginary rectangular cube like a shoe box, and all the same rules of perspective and vanishing points apply. Yeah, right.
