C is for Claudia and for Chair and also for Cars

In March/April 2022, I took an online sketching class at GoggleWorks Center for the Arts in Reading, PA. I was looking for an opportunity to get myself back into drawing. My eye problems of summer and fall 2021 into early 2022 had shaken my confidence in my ability to see well enough to do pen and ink drawing, and I thought a regular schedule of sketching would be good to start me moving again.

The class was a lot of fun, the instructor was great, and my goal was met – I did a lot of drawing and I enjoyed myself. I’ll show you what I worked on in a series of posts.

Thanks to my instructor, Zoungy Kligge, and my classmates for a good experience.

An alternative choice for the C is for…assignment was cars. I drew a couple of situations involving cars. Just for fun. Because I also like drawing cars.

Both of these scenes were from photos I took of the same parking lot in a shopping center near my house.

      Thank you. Yes, I noticed in these pictures that to some extent these cars are actually making expressions, which reminds me that in real life, cars are doing it as well (or so I have always thought…)

      Thank you. I never mean to give cars faces but often they end up with them because for one thing I do think a car has a personality and therefore not surprising a face, and…I have thought all my life that the way a car’s features are arranged in front mimic a person. Although I wish more cars smiled and did not snarl as so many seem to do.
