Sketching in the Kitchen

Some sketches from the kitchen from last night. Once I started, I couldn't stop. I added some colour to the cupboard today. I have to admit it is not exactly colour perfect, but I enjoy dabbling with watercolours. And I've worked out what went wrong with the scanner. I had set it on 50 dpi for something and it didn't change the setting back!

Great job Carole! You did an awesome job keeping the perspective and the floating hob is a fun touch, sort-of Magritte! I've done some sketches in the kitchen, too, and agree they are great perspective exercises. Need to get back to them when I get the new sketchbook finished!

These are great sketches. You've inspired me to do some kitchen sketches.
I love the kettle, but I also love the kitchen cupboard.
Well done!

Carole, I'm so glad to see you do the same thing I do. I started a drawing today and then drew beneath it because I jut could not quite get the angles right. I never thought about using the tile as a grid, but you're right.
Good job = especially the coloring.

Hi Carole,
I started my new memoir class, today and after reading some of the bios, I am ready to cut my throat. The class is full of bigtime professionals, some have been published more than once.
I guess I will stay in it; I dread the critiques.
I am attempting the first assignment now, flop.
Aren't I optimistic today? I imagine you can feel the optimism over there.

Hi Connie
I'm sorry you're not feeling optimistic today. I'm sure you will enjoy the class. Even people who have been published still want to learn and need support. You're only as good as your last book and all that. And your life writing is good; it's specific and grounded and enjoyable to read. Only the other day I was thinking of when you wrote about your pond and the pollywogs, and I was kind of missing reading your writing.

Great close up view of the inside of your cupboard. I like how you show the illustration in both black and white and color. I also and enjoying your journaling pages!
