limited pallet, images & interiors

Art Circle at St Annes Library:  Thursdays, 11 - 12.30

The task...
Using a limited pallet of four coloured pencils, depict an interior using an image as a starting point.

I love the simplicity and coherence a limited pallet brings to these drawings.  Notice Roland's drawing, I think most would agree it's easily recognisable as "Vincent's Bedroom at Arles"  Vincent van Gogh 1889.  Less well know is Stuart's starting point, "Card Players in a Sunlit Room" Pieter de Hooch 1658:  the idea of inside & outside is captured beautifully.

Well done everyone:  all the pieces work really well!
