Every day in May no. 30


I had very little time to draw today, so I decided to go all sketchy and do a fast one of a lamp in the house. I didn´t quite get the perspective right, but that was not the important thing. Taking a few minutes to draw in spite of heaps of other things to do was what I wanted to achieve.

There is one day left of May, and I will have the great pleasure of doing the last drawing in my new - BIGGER - sketchbook. This was the last page in the tiny Moleskine Watercolor!

12 x 8 cm, Lamy Safari, Noodler´s Black and watercolors on a small Moleskine Watercolor page.

I really love this lamp - it is so charming and whimsical, but the colors give it an air of seriousness - like a storm has set it rocking. It's a great combination. Congratulations on reaching the end of your little moleskin - I can't wait to see what you do in the new book.

I love this sketch. It's full of movement even though it's a still object.
Really wonderful!
I'm impressed that you can do a sketch with little time.

I love the perspective on this - it gives it such character - like it's in a hurry to get somewhere or is having a jousting match with another chandelier
