The Bookcase

The Bookcase (larger)

This one was a fun one to do. I was lounging at the home of some friends and had time to sketch at a leisurely pace while New Year’s Day breakfast was being prepared. A rather luxurious way to sketch, I’d say! That’s my friend’s oil painting on the top of the bookcase.

    I love this! Making a bookcase appealing to the eye… makes me want to draw mine.

    I’ve been working on perspective drawing and thinking about your sketches of buildings and how accurately they’re drawn. Even this bookcase has good perspective (and the usual lovely colors and feel).

    I just love this. It looks so real and love the colors.
    I had my first pen and ink class today and the three hours flew by! I enjoyed it way more than I expected to.
    Happy Valentine’s Day to you!

    I really like your design. This sketch could be viewed abstractly also, as a set of squares/rectangles and vertical lines. Lovely soft colors.

    Very inviting, I think. It makes you want to touch the books, look at the titles and see, if – by any chance – your friends like the same books as I do… That oilpainting looks very interesting, too.
