Sketching at the RA - The Friends Room #4 and #5

This is the fifth in my mini series of sketches of the Friends' Room at the Royal Academy of Art.

This is the first sketch in my brand new A4 size Moleskine Sketchbook. The paper is similar - but slightly different. I seemed to have difficulty getting depth of colour using coloured pencils - but only had a basic set of pencils with me so I'm open to a different interpretation. I've tweaked this sketch in Photoshop to show to the effect I was after - and would have got with my other (smaller) Moleskine as opposed to the one I got which was somewhat lighter

This sketch is one which I did in February last year. For some reason it never got posted on this blog!
