Watercolour sketch of a living room and window

This is the first drawing from my tiny Moleskine watercolour sketchbook, which I did a few weeks ago. When I sketched this I was at a friend’s house looking after her cat, who was sitting on my knee fast asleep. I didn’t like to disturb her so decided to just pick up my sketchbook and pen and make use of this enforced resting time by sketching my view of the living room table and window.

I sketched it with a black Unipin 02 and then took a photo on my phone to refer to when I painted it later on at home. I seemed to get a bit heavy handed with the shading on the blind on the right hand side but never mind. I still enjoyed myself and remember little details from this day that I might have otherwise forgotten.
