EDM #173 - Draw Something From Memory

I really enjoyed doing this one. I chose to draw my parent's living room from memory. This is also the house where I lived while growing up. I think I got the the furniture right, but I couldn't remember the colors. I know the recliner is brown and the drapes are gold, but I can't remember the color of the walls, carpet, or rocking chair cushion. I used Prismacolor and Copic markers to color in my drawing. The picture below is marker only. I thought the walls were a tad bright, so I added some colored pencil to tone them down. The first picture is the one with colored pencil added. Mom and Dad, you'll need to tell me how much I got right and how much I got wrong. I discovered I love drawing from memory. I am going to do more of it.

Wow, this is amazing. I know I would not remember all that detail. Great drawing!

Thanks, Ann. I think I remember all of the detail because I visit once a year and draw from life when I am at their house. I draw in graphite ... which is probably why I can't remember colors!
