Old comfy chair

Pastel on Tiziano cream, 240x320mm (approx 9.4x12.5 in.)

I started a new artists journal this afternoon, and to break it in, I did a quick ink sketch of the old comfy chair in my living room. I rather liked the composition implied by the foreshortening in the sketch, and decided to do it in pastel, once again playing with colors and watching the play of light. There was a cat in the basket, but she left. They do that.
