Flying Chairs


I'm taking a drawing class and this was one of our assignments. "Draw a chair floating in the sky". The top one is my first sketch in my little sketchbook (the actual drawing is about 5"x8"). The bottom drawing is about 18"x24" and started as a charcoal pencil drawing but ended up in pastel. I just can't seem to do a drawing these days without color. I took a photo of the bottom drawing and the white edges and bottoms of the feet were actually dark graphite pencil over the pastel but because of the flashes reflection, they show up white. It's pretty cool this way. I think I like the photo better than the actual drawing. Isn't art fun?
