Diane,

The sketch has a lot of charm.  Love the bed and those cute little chairs.  The little table with the bottles looks so well drawn.

The only thing that bothers me are the pictures on the right wall.  The two top portraits seem to be hanging unnaturally. especially the one on the string.  The string would have to be longer on one side to make it hang like that.

It is really good and shows a lot of thought and work going into it.

aloha

Thank you mea and you are exactly right, it's something I overlooked because the string should be slanted and I forgot the shadows around the pictures , I will fix it  :)

Great work with the sketching. I just have a problem with the perspective. No vanishing points were used here.

 :heeha: Love this Diane! I rather enjoy the what shall I call it.... abstract distortion?  :confused:   Whatever you call it, I like it.  O0 I'm told I've always been a bit cockeyed, but for what it's worth, I think it's great!  :clap: :clap: :clap:      :yippee:

Love the furniture in your little room Diane, your "abstract distortion" (as Val calls it ) of the walls doors and floor reminds me of those mirrors that distort your body shape  :2funny: kind of makes me sea sick  ;D
