Scavenger Sketches, Fireplace and Stool

I actually enjoyed doing these tonight. I was watching TV so the mind wandered. #4, fireplace (unfinished), #5 painting on wall, #6, footstool (a camel saddle from Peru .. why they have camel saddles with no camels, who knows?) I sketched for about 50-60 minutes with the ZIG Millennium pen in the Canson sketchbook. The shapes aren't in true perspective at all. The painting is on another spot on the wall, but it goes over the fireplace all right. :) Everything in the sketches sort of falls to the right .. maybe it is the way I was sitting. After a slow start, I did paint and sketch today and that is good.
