Day 2 of 7

Ok, this is day 2 and I've succeeded in actually following through. This is my front porch, drawn from my favorite chair at the end of it. This took longer than I thought it would. All those lines and I screwed up the perspective in places, but it's ok. It's just a sketch after all. I didn't put in the plant stand at the the far end with all the plants on it, because after fussing with the porch lines, I just wanted to get it done! lol! You can't see our neighbor's house in the summer time, it's wonderful. So many trees and shrubs. Feels like we're the only ones here during the day when everyone else has gone off to work. And I have at least 6 windchimes hanging on the porch. All have a different tone and the one is a huge bamboo chime that I really love to hear when the wind blows. If I ever get my studio built I will call it Windchime Studio. Hope you like this. 4 x 6 inches. Pencil in my small moleskine. 3 hours.

Don't know why you're calling this a sketch -looks like a fully worked up drawing to me! Maybe you use the words differently in the US. Beautiful drawing of a very inviting looking porch. The perspective is particularly good.

What a beautiful porch! That's a great drawing of it. It must have been quite a challenge with that perspective. Well done.

I love this. It's beautifully done, and evokes so many memories of so many porches in my life. Is it L shaped? I lived in a veryold, sprawled out house while in collegethat had a porch so much like this. My room was at the far end. I don't miss the house that much, but the porch, I do.

Thank you for sharing this, it's one of my favorites lately
