My first interior study piece. I am trying to up my flexibility as a painter, and one of my weak points has always been enviroments.

Though the underlying sketch's perspective was semi-solid, the lines have turned a little wonky in the painting process.

I wondered if you you would be interested in selling a single use or stock art rights license for this image? I would like to use this for a small pdf supplement for a roleplaying game. If so please email me via Steve at RitePublishing dot com

a few lines are wonky. The lines might look better if the rest of the place looked more run down- kind of like they were collapsing. Otherwise, I really like the atmosphere. It's really peaceful. I would go somewhere like this to read and contemplate life.

you are right about the lines ofcourse. Unfortunately perspective lines always display my inner slacker, and the reason I always flunked my technical drawing and industrial design classes at art school.... :(

I am thrilled you can look past all that!

cheers, you always write really nice comments,

Hey, if you're going to take the time to write a comment, might as well make it useful.

And I totally identify with your inner slacker. I have one too, which is why I much prefer organic objects to geometric ones.

wow, ik wou dat ik dat ook kon, ik word altijd luis als ik bij 8 uurtjes werk ben (verspred over meerdere dagen) dan ben ik de tekening gewoon zat.

Groetjes uit Amsterdam!

Ik ook hoor. Het helpt wel dat ik met meerdere schilderijen tegelijk bezig ben, houd het lekker fris (en fruitig).

Not something I'd expect but it does fit your style, hehe. All that's missing is a dusty old librarian to match the dusty old library ;)

The only thing that I noticed was the perspective on the right side of the rug on floor it a little off.

Otherwise excelent piece my friend :D
