EDM Drawing Challenge # 60 Draw an automobile or part of one.

sketching the rusted out carOn one of our Sunday walks we discovered this rusted out old car while exploring the paths up near Scrivener Dam. It is a sad old thing.

I decided it was a suitable candidate for the EDM drawing challenge # 60 Draw an automobile or part of one.

The day was windy and bit uncomfortable but I pulled out my fishermans stool, sat down and spent about 20-30 minutes drawing it. I enjoyed sketching it. I would like to return again when the weather is a bit nicer, to do some detailed sections or draw it from different angles because the rusted textures are simply wonderful. There are also lots of different colours in that rusted wreck and loads of interesting positive and negative shapes.

I have no idea how it got there or what the story is behind it but I am sure it has one.

My drawing is done in my current sketchbook/journal which is a Canson. I used Derwent Graphitints pencils, and Faber Castell Pitt pens.
