HomeBound - Bathroom
It's been pretty miserable weather here for the last few days, I think the rain just holds out for the school holidays! Hence, myself and the boys have been a little homebound.
On Monday, after running a nice hot bath, I decided to be daring and take my small moleskin sketchbook into the bathroom for a change of scenery and do some sketching. From my relaxing, rose scented, bath I sketched the taps. Holding the book out of the water and sketching directly in pigment liner gave me good practice for those moments on location when there is no where to rest my sketchbook. My arms ached rapidly and as a result the shower head is a little out of proportion, should be larger, but I am quite happy with the taps themselves.
My radiator sketch is much more colourful than my actual bathroom, my walls are pale lavender and my skirting is white but I thought my sketch would be a good place to play with colour and got a little carried away!
