Kitchen Counter Scene

I have a real love for interior details of houses, esp. cabinetry and architectural detailing. I drew this kitchen counter vignette, using a photo out of a book called: The Way We Live as inspiration. There's something about a well-utilized work area: where frequent use over a long period of time naturally dictates the organization of the space. In the reference photo, the shelves are a patinated mustard yellow and the china pieces are stark white. (To me, the well-placed shallots on the stainless steel counter are a dead giveaway that it's out of a design book!)

I really like the look of this one. It actually looks really alive and has good depth. I wouldn't have guessed it was drawn from a photo - even with the shallots ;).

The limited use of colour works very well.
