As a warm-up exercise, I usually make many sketches of the surroundings in the studio.
This is a view of the studio, with a straw hat atop the easel.
The second and more restrained sample is from the opposite wall, facing a garden. This provisional table is covered with some paper sheets and the breeze was blowing, moving them around. I used three colours in this one, instead of the many used in the first one.
