Hi, my name is Jessica and this is how you draw a reading chair. We're going to start with the back which is going to be kind of a square shape but slightly rounded and that part is going to come down and that is the back of the chair. Then the chair comes out at an angle. We're going to make this come out at an angle and we've got a little bit of thickness to this part of the chair like so and then the chair is going to have these sort of ornate legs that are going to come out on all four corners and we're just going to come down just like so. It's a very fancy old chair and we've got one in the back there that you can't really see. And then there are arms on this chair and the arms would come up and they come out, so we've got this kind of action going on. We've got this on both sides. So the chairs come up, the arms there they come up and then they go out and in this particular reading chair we have these kind of dots in the background like that and this chair also has these sort of fancy wooden parts at the top here and kind of ornate wooden decoration that goes around the side because again this is a fancy old reading chair. And we're just going to kind of draw some lines here to show that the chair is coming out and maybe a couple across. Shade this in a little here and here and that is how you draw a reading chair.
