    Outdoor drawing - need crits

    This is a little something I drew while relaxing. I wanted to try and practice some outdoor perspective. I haven't finished with all the parts, but I would like some feedback before I continue on with the rest of it.

    This was done with watercolor pencils and a wash pen so it shouldn't be too hard to fix.

    looks like the perspective is off quite a bit. One way to work outside is to lightly establish perfectly vertical and horizontal lines on your surface with a t square or ruler before you work. It could be divided in half or thirds and then once outside measure your angles and placement against these lines until you get your accuracy up a little more.

    If the horizon (eye level) is somewhere near the bottom of the door, why can we see so much of the near car's hood and roof?
