Virtual Sketch Date for October



I decided to crop to just one pear. I left my drawing to the last minute again and wanted to finish in time. Also I plan to give this one as one of my postcard exchanges in the project I am in on WC.

I am happy with this one. I used colored pencils and was going to leave it with no background, but it looked lonely on the page. I decided to give it a red background. At first I wanted to let it be a soft background but it just didn't do anything for the pear. So out comes the bold color in me and this is the result.

I hope everyone had a great time this month. I did and also got one more of my trade cards finished. Thanks Belinda for the reference photo.

Love your pear and the red background really does make it pop. There is such diversity in this month's VSD.

It's great to try bold colors together and I like how yours turned out!

If ever there is a time to be bold, I think the VSD is it. The red and green compliments work well together. That pear doesn't look lonely anymore! :)

Love your pear! The rich orange background really lets the green of the pear stand out. Thanks for stopping by to see my sketch as well!
