The above images are my drawing, next to the actual image that I was drawing from. Because I was drawing from an image, the drawing technique is an observation drawing, as I observed my picture. As I had never drawn a car before, there were difficulties everywhere. These difficulties caused problems, but i'm a problem solver, so I made it work. As an artist, I primarily use straight lines, and the car had plenty of curves. Trying to get good circles, and exact curves, I tried both free hand, and rulers, but neither worked. Temporarily, I was beaten and did not want to even attempt the circles and curves, but I persevered. I then tried using a compass for the headlights, which was difficult, but worked. Because of my ability to solve the problem, I learned a new way of creating art by using new tools, and the piece came out just as i had hoped.
Because of the problems I faced, I developed my art making skills. Cars was a new challenge for me, and all the curves was mostly new, as most of my other art pieces did not have the defined curves that the car did. Because of this, I needed to use new materials, and became comfortable with using a compass to make circles and curves. As I said earlier in this post, I momentarily gave up, as this was too new and too hard. Soon after I knew that I had to finish the piece, and I pushed on. Now, i'm more comfortable using a compass to create curves, and even though i'm not perfect, i'm expanding my skill set greatly.
