Une table toute croche

Vieille table familiale un peu toute croche, qui repose sur un vieux tapis de Turquie qui est un peu tout croche… coup donc! Je dois aimer les choses qui sont un peu toutes croches ;-) Voici ma table un peu toute croche qui vit dans mon salon qui est tout probablement un peu tout croche…

This coffee table has been in my family for many generations… and I thought that it would be fun to draw it in my small Moleskine sketchbook. THEN I decided to paint it… what a mistake. Some colours do not agree with the Moleskine sketchbook… the more opaque colours like Burnt Sienna, Indian Red, etc. The transparent colours work perfectly in it… they become grungy looking, which I truly love. So here is a perfect example of using the wrong colours in a painting.
