EDM Challenge #64: Draw a Sink


I had a few minutes this morning and decided I should do this sketch before Karen posts the next EDM challenge.  We renovated the 1920s bathroom off the master bedroom in our apartment and had to decide how to handle the area above the sink if we moved it below the window in a wood and marble built-in.  I was able to find lovely translucent glass that allows the sun and light in but gives us some privacy from the avenue below.  The bathroom is wood, marble, and mirrors but I have no idea how to depict marble in a watercolor wash!  I also haven't mastered shiny brass, so the lights and fixtures are not reflective.  Ah, so much more to learn!


the sketch is very nice and I don't miss the reflections at all. Your color work is really great.

Hi Shirley;

Your painting is stunningly beautiful! Such detail but the lines are so light! It must have taken you quite a while to complete. Absolutely fabulous!

I also really like the style of your bathroom. It looks to be part of a cosy home.

I think it's great! A wet on wet technique would work well for marbling. You can wet the area and then "drop" small dabs of color in and let it do it's thing.

Wow..this is truly beautiful! The sink and the drawing of the sink! I had such a hard time with my sink...yours is awesome!

great job, I love your new bathroom! It looks very inviting. Dianne

Lovely bathroom.. fantastic sketch. You definitely have a knack for watercolour washes.

Not only do I love the drawing, I love the choices you made in renovating the bathroom. This is so beautiful
