This leisurely Saturday morning has afforded me the time to do a bit of sketching. I have a new porcelain mug I just love and, since I can't keep my eyes off of it anyway, I thought I might as well commit what I see to paper.
Symmetrical curvy vessels like this can be such a challenge. I usually begin with a sort of "grid" so that I will end up with at least some sort of balance.
It's always hard to decide just when to stop. I think I'll add a little ink and watercolor later.
In other news, yesterday I found a few treasures at a second-hand store that have helped me cozy up my studio. I finally found the funky chair I've been looking for along with a velvet pillow in a very yummy shade of green and a curtain that I think ties them together perfectly.
The botanical + bird prints on the curtain suit me just fine.
So here's what my studio looked like yesterday morning:
Not bad, but I really wanted a comfortable place to sit when I check my emails or just need to mull something over, so here'e the new and improved version.
There's just something about the color orange that puts a smile on my face every time. I am a happy girl when I sit in that chair. Unfortunately I'm not the only one who loves it!
So now I have a great place to sit and visit all your lovely blogs and read your sweet comments. Slowly but surely my studio space is becoming the little haven I always dreamed of having. Life is good.
