Virtual Sketch Date for July 26


Today is the due date for the Virtual Sketch Date. I hadn't even started it until about 11 pm Friday. I worked straight thru until I was finished. I let the week get away from me. Nothing like doing it the last minute.

I took a little artistic license with the photo. I changed around parts of it and left out some.

Great colours Jeanne. You were brave to tackle those leaves. This piece has a lovely summery feel to it.

Hi Jeanne,
I like the circular technique. It puts me in mind of the texture of the citrus peel.
I like it!
You worked all night!?

Nice job! I like how you used your artistic license.

Stacy said...

Wow, you were brave to start this so late. Great job getting it done! I like the combination of colors you used in the background and how it coordinates with the colors in the leaves and sunquats.

I love the sunny colors and the circular technique. It reminds me of watercolor on crumpled rice paper.

This is really 'zingy', lovely summer colours. Like the circular strokes.

I call this the scribble method :) It is one of my favorite methods to use. Kylie and I recently wrote and illustrated a book for a woman that was 11 years old in Northern Poland when the Germans invaded. I used that technique with pencil for all of the illustrations.

Your colors are very well chosen. I look forward to seeing more of your work.
