have a seat, part three

after illustrating lots of these little chairs,
i'm learning a lot by adding different styles to my "collection"!

some are easier than others, 
and some look a little wonky, no matter how long you work on them 
(i may have worked on this one a little too long….)

so when i've had too much of a brown bar stool,
there's nothing like a sweet little garden chair 
with a little blue birdie to lighten things up a bit.

and then it's on to the ultimate challenge….the papasan,
which i've also dubbed as "the neptune chair"….
because i'll have to practice this one many, many times to be able
to draw that cushion so it doesn't look like a giant seashell!  :))
oh well, as they say….
chair-practice makes chair-perfect,
and keeping the process fun makes a lot of chair-happy!!

i'll be sharing a video soon showing all ten chairs together...
 you can also see other chairs in this series here and here!

{these chairs were inspired by one of the lessons taught by
to create these illustrations, i've cut 140lb CP watercolor paper to 6" x 6", 
and i've used watercolor, a little colored pencil, and graphite pencils}

I adore your chairs and each one seems to be my favorite. Of course now I want a big bowl of ice cream while sitting in a blue "Neptune" chair as I am being sung to by a beautiful blue birdie. June JOY Dear...

Love your chairs! It tickled me to see the 1970's one - you captured every detail!
