EDM Challenge #128: Doorway View from One Room to Another


This is the view from our living room into the kitchen area. I was sitting on the couch after having gone through the rest of the house-looking for a doorway view to draw that corresponded to my mood and time-frame. I gave up, sat down, and...this view presented itself.
It is two steps up into our kitchen from the living room. The first step is also a landing-with the stairs to the lower level feeding left, down to where the bedrooms are. (We live on a very steep slope!) The next opening-also left-is to the entrance room and the front door. Beyond is a captured, built-in daybed in a nook with an interior 'window' that filters light from the front door space into the kitchen sitting area.

Beautiful drawing and such a great job with the perspective. Your house looks simply lovely - that fireplace is amazing.

I really do like the quality of your drawings. The marks are so bold and confidently drawn. I don't know if you've ever tried printmaking, but your drawings have a print-like quality to them.

Excellent drawing! The house layout sounds pretty interesting especially that built-in daybed, always wanted one of those to read and daydream in!

I'm with Tami, I always wanted a bed built into a nook with a window...how cozy! Your drawing is wonderful. I'm going to have to read back and see what kind of pencils and pens you are using.
