My first EDM challenge ever



I decided to give the latest Everyday Matters challenge a try (info here if you´re even more new to it than I am) - to draw what I see when I enter my home. I love our home, it´s small but it´s got everything you need (unless you have a few kids and a dog...) Hard to draw the hallway, though, because it is so tiny. Whichever corner I choose to stand in, a wall and a doorway is two meters ahead of me and it´s hard to fit it all onto a page in my sketchbook. Unless I draw very small. Anyway, this is a small section of what I see when I come in.

You did a wonderful job!!! The perspective looks perfect and the rooms look very interesting. Great!

It's a very inviting entryway, Nina! I like the monochromatic look .. it's both subtle and rich and the space recedes so nicely.

If you'd like to suggest a weekly topic we haven't done before, write me offlist and I'll put it in the pool of those I select from.

Nina! This is EXCELLENT! I agree totally with Karen. This is monochromatic, but there is so much life to the drawing too. Well done!
