EDM #50 - Draw your Entryway - Homecoming
While the grands took a nap this afternoon, I did a 'quick' of the view you'd see if you stepped through my frontdoor.
The first thing you'd see is, again, another bookcase - this one twice as large as the one in my workroom. The chair in the corner is my husband's recliner in a dusty rose color. Behind it and peeking from the top of the chair is my old guitar case (I haven't played in 20 years, and C was trying to teach himself.) What you can't see is his mandolin case next to the guitar (this he's learning very well!). The table against the right wall is an antique flour table. Note the curved wooden drawer -- I'm told they used to store flour in it and curved the bottom for storage. The round lamp is an antique glass in the same dusty pink and rose pattern as the one on my fireplace.
This challenge was indeed CHALLENGING with all the perspectives, lines, and curves, and I STOOD to sketch it so I could get the 'view' of someone walking through the door. FUN! I'd like to redo it at a slower pace and see if I could get more details and a bit better perspective.
