This was an interesting sketch to do. I took an opportunity to do this while my husband was busy cleaning his fly-fishing gear and both the kids were otherwise occupied. It was suprisingly quick to do. It's hard on these dull winter days to find strong light coming from anywhere, so in the winter I find drawing in the evening is actually better to get good shadows. The reflections in the glass added some interest and this was what inspired me to do a more detailed study of the kitchen window at night, which I will post when completed.
For now at least, I am making the most of any opportunity to sketch in the warmth of my own home.
It's not always easy finding the time to sketch when juggling with work commitments and family life - another reason for me to want to 'loosen up' and sketch more freely. I'm working on a full on charcoal drawing now of the same subject, in a more thoughtful composition.
