A traffic lesson

Here's an example from this morning that shows how much I still have to learn about drawing fundamentals.

I got a ride to work and thought I would try my hand at sketching the traffic on the highway as we headed towards Toronto. I got so fixated on the pick-up truck in front of us and the constant movement of vehicles that I lost my sense of scale and perspective. I was using an ink pen, so couldn't erase anything.

In frustration, I decided to pick a point and draw perspective lines, then drew the new traffic over the old. Strangely, the superimposed jumble creates a sense of motion.

Or maybe it was just me getting car sick.
