Condo Living Room

10.25x9 watercolor and ink on sketchbook page, part of an assignment in Sketchbook Skool to do a detailed scene with ink then add color.  Tommy Kane is this week's instructor and he did an demo of his kitchen.  I've also drawn our condo kitchen with its wonky appliances for the homework.  Our condo living room was done last night and took over 2 hours.  From its stone fireplace to Mexican metal sunflowers to ceramic owls it spells fun.  Today just finished reading An Illustrated Journey by Danny Gregory, one of the Skool founders.  I did not realize keeping sketchbook journals was as popular worldwide as it is.  This weekend also was trying out new Uniball black ink pens found in Walgreen's that lots of artists use; I've employed it here in this scene from our Pinon Park condo, and really love its effect gliding across smooth paper.
