The first chair you drew was a fairly simple one, so this time, try drawing a chair that's a bit more elaborate. You're in the living room, so you've probably got a number of choices—from a well-worn recliner to an antique rocker or even, perhaps, a Victorian settee or fainting couch. Take a look at the different textures of wood or fabric. What pleases you most?
When it comes to drawing a chair, you may decide to return to your plastic picture plane to get the angles just right. If so, that's fine. Remember, artists use aids like plastic picture planes and view finder frames all the time, so there's no reason you should feel like you're cheating if you do, too.
Chairs make simple and convenient drawing subjects.
