Hi Sholom,

I have experienced that many starters of EToys think of sketches as  
rectangles.  But a sketch can be any graphical object.

The best mileage you can get from a sketch is to make it a compact  
one - like the classical red car. Then it is easy to think of it as  
an object.
But the space to do the gradient fill in is not be well defined in a  
sketch - shall it fill the tires or the body of the car?

If you need to draw an arbitrary closed surface with a gradient fill  
try Curve or Polygon.
If you need a rectangular filled background with some sketch on top  
just stick to Playfield.

And please:
