If you look at the right side of my blog you will see a link to Paper, Paint, Pencils, & Pens which is a blog I am doing with a group of other artists. Please click on the link and come visit us there. This month we are doing sketches that fit the theme "Close to Home." I have posted many of my local landscapes there, but someone did a post of their chair and I ended up following suit.
This is the view I have most of the time when I sit on my living room couch. In addition to seeing the TV which is directly in front of me, I have a view of the loveseat, lamp, end table and window. This sketch was done with a combination of watercolors, inktense pencils and ink.
Then I sketched where I usually sit on the couch...with a pillow behind me for added comfort on my comfy couch. My tea is within reach, and a plastic box containing some of my sketching supplies so I don't have to reach far for anything. (Even the phone is within reach...lazy?...you bet! LOL Is it really this neat...no way! I used artistic license to eliminate much of the clutter that is on the table in front of me and by the telephone. Usually my laptop isn't on the coffee table. It is in my lap and my feet are resting on the coffee table. Now you can picture my setting.
