USk: Labor Day in the Finish Studio

Labor Day weekend and we are laborers so we are working…
I have new A/C and a new lease on life in my newly cleaned and reorganized studio!
I sat close to the door and tried to draw the entire room.


I use pencil to lay out perspective but that thing is, something went wrong.
When a drawing is wrong there is little color will do to fix it… but I persevered.
Damn I am a master at perspective but this is not wonky, it is just wrong!.

Cropping helped…  On this page it just looks wonky.
The Del Rey table is starting to walk out the door!

I have lots of Mason Monterey and Del Rey Monterey-style in my studio right now.
I took liberties as the desk in red is going to BE Spanish Red,
but now it is an extremely damaged Desert Dust.

Oh gads here is where the rails came off.
Everything is levitating…
Thank goddess this is not so or I’d have broken lovely California tiles….

I realize that by their rules this doesn’t qualify as an urban sketch…
but is someone else walked in to sketch our conservation studio it sure would!

    Looks pretty good to me. Wonky is OK. I appreciate that you share the stuff you aren’t totally happy with.

    I think it’s just your special little table that is out of perspective, but as always I love your art! Great new room!

    I say let it raise the roof! 😀


  4. I love your drawing! I really don’t see the flaws that you do. I think if you want a perfect record of a space, that is when you take a photograph. It’s the imperfections, the sign that the thing was drawn by hand, that makes it art. It uses that individuality for character and charm. I honestly think it’s a delightful drawing.
