Two classics

The Adirondack chair is a true summer classic. You can buy them all over the place these days or make your own from a kit. They even come in a coloured PVC version, but these old guys are made from wood. The problem with them is that they have weathered to an even grey, as has the lattice behind them and they are sitting on grey brick. Doesn’t make for a very lively sketch. So I had to be a little inventive with the colour here, using lots of winsor violet, raw sienna and cobalt blue.

    They look so inviting. I’d love to settle into one with a good book and a glass of lemonade.
