Drawing II, class 2: homework done!

Quelle journee´! I have spent ALL day, and I mean from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm, with about 20 minutes off for lunch, in my studio working on my drawing. A great day, but now my back is killing me and I am exhausted, but in a good way. I really learned a lot from this exercise!
The homework for  this week was to do two sketches in our sketchbook of a chair, in one-point and two-point perspective, then to do a full size drawing sheet (3' x 2') drawing of the chair in perspective, to add a background either real or imaginary, and then to colour the drawing with chalk pastels showing tonal values and demonstrating creativity - whew!
I showed the sketchbook drawing in an earlier post.
Here is today's work, the drawing in two-point perspective and then the colouring with chalk pastel.
