Mackintosh Chair

I found this offering to the chair inspirations pile and fell in love with the right hand chair.  There is a Charles Rennie Mackintosh chair in the V & A - it is gorgeous
Fabulous shapes, I think these are masculine chairs Dale, wish I had one of these in my home!
I still have not found my preferred sketch book - must make a concerted effort tomorrow.= Shelagh

an art deco chair

Look like I had better hunt out an A6 sketchbook - where have I hidden them when I did my clearing the table effort? Here is a chair with very interesting lines and no - not my plan to create something similar in copper wire but there are a few interesting shapes for Romeo work surely? A very feminine chair I reckon


Painted by Paul Gauguin, I feel a lot of similar 'edges' to Van Gogh.  I love the use of purple to show the light source, even though the candle is lit - such a funky fun chair looks like it should have springs or wheels on the legs
The carpet is interesting as it lacks perspective.  The skirting board is the line that grounds the image

FRIDAY is WEEK ONE - DAY ONE = A6 sketchbook, landscape or portrait - wait to see what we both use - I am hunting out a Khadi paper one that has vanished - if it does not appear then I have a seabright one with quite thin paper or a watercolour pad, decisions, I always spend a good deal of time thinking about what book or paper to contain my work, I might even use a cream paged Paperchase book = Shelagh
