Eleanor Roosevelt said “Do one thing every day that scares you.” Drawing cars scares me. I will do anything to avoid putting them in a sketch. Today I spent a little time analysing why I’m so averse to drawing them. First of all, you have to be super detailed and precise when you draw them — if you mess something up it’s very obvious — and I am neither super detailed nor precise in my drawing. Second of all, there are lots of circles on a car and I am bad at drawing circles. And thirdly, for me, most cars are not that interesting as objects. So I take the easy way out and pretend they are not there. Well today I faced my fear head on and here is the result. Not the best car drawing I have ever seen but at least it looks like a car and if I’m lucky some people may even recognize what type of car it is.
