sketching chairs

OMG - I can't tell you how many times I've attempted to draw an Adirondack chair - they're HARD! That angled back, the angled seat, the slats - man oh man I've struggled.  I tried it again with my new-found knowledge and feel like I have a better result.  At least they look like chairs you could actually sit in!

It was a rainy day in Whistler when I took this photo so I tried to impart that with the paint spatters. Here's the original photo - didn't attempt the Olympic sculpture in the background.....

Dare I try to commit to a sketch a day?  I'm pretty close to doing that anyway, but do I need the pressure?  Maybe.

    Perfect. There are lots of angles to these chairs aren't there? Look comfy too. I love them. xox

    So glad to know just what an Adirondack chair is! They crop up in American novels and I didn't have a clue.


Thanks so much for taking the time to add a comment. I value what you think!
