This is a late evening sketch of a room that was central to our lives for so many years, our family living room. It is not completely put back in order after a party tonight and now all the others are in bed or gone. Even without people in it it is full of stories and memories and I wanted to convey this feeling. I worked with dark rich colors and was casual about the perspective, hoping that this would suggest a long existence, good use and a place well lived in. This is another sketch I hope to return to and improve.
I drew it in pencil several times, painted it in watercolor and then inked over many of the lines.
