Virtual Sketch Date #2


Here is my version of the flower photo (provided by jennifer rose) for the Virtual Sketch Date #2. I decided to leave mine in graphite this time.

Today is the 19th Worldwide Sketchcrawl. I will be going out in the morning before it gets too hot. We are having very hot weather lately. I will go to my parent's house. They have a really nice variety of plants and a vegetable garden. Hopefully I won't get heat stroke while I am sketching.

Jeanne, nice work on the lily. You managed to push the values which is something I would have liked to do if I had the time.

Happy blog birthday and have fun with the sketch crawl. And watch out for that heat stroke! :D

There is a boldness and contrast to this piece that I really like a lot. You have captured the essence of the flower using broad quick strokes of the pencil. It is very well done.

Hi Jeanne,
Your sketch has reminded me that I really love graphite! I want to say, it is a jaunty drawing!

Is it your "go to" medium when you just want to play?

Jennifer Rose said...

Jeanne - Nice job on this in graphite!!! Hope your sketchcrawl was fun and wasn't too hot. Mickey and I went to a carousel and the zoo. Check out my blog to see the sketches if you get a chance.
