Corner at the Cottage



This weekend I was able to grab a few minutes to try and draw a corner at the cottage. It is incredible how wonky this drawing is, but I do feel like I can really remember how this corner looks now. That makes drawing a wonderful memory tool for me--I tend to have a terrible memory.

It was very shadowy in the room, so I could not see details of what I was drawing.

You make an excellent observation about how drawing helps us recall things better. Lovely drawing!

I think it is perfect! I love all of it---the different textures you've created with you pencil or pen, the shape and curves of the table. It is very evocative of a shadowy, cozy room.

So you just GUESSED? I wish I could guess like that! (You really are very, very good.)

LOL moi! Well, some of the detail under the table was sort of guessed at from what I could see and what I could remember. and then there is the oil lamp--all of the bracket that holds it to the wall was too shadowy-so that is why that is so --well, sketchy! LOL

I'm glad you all could tell it was cozy--the whole room is in old dark beaded board and the lamp is gold stained glass-I should try to add some color.

Very nice! I really love the way you draw lines. They're just so loose and flowing. I think it makes your drawings very inviting.
