October Virtual Sketch Date

This months virtual sketch date has been a gone AGAIN. I feel terribly bad that i didnt participate this month as one of my photos was chosen as the reference of the sketch date.

My lazyiness was resolved a bit by the fact that i had already sketched this pears from that reference a while ago, and the artwork sold not that long ago so i hope you all still love me :).
I think if i was to do this again it would be a totally different piece, but I wanted to post this artwork anyway for all those participating in the date.

I have to admit i have little thrill to see so many wonderful artists and pieces coming out of my little photo. Thereare so many different styles and works its fantastic.

Here is the link to the virtual sketch date blog, to see all the links for yourself :)

The links havent been posted as yet but i am sure they will be shortly.

This is a wonderful piece Belinda, no wonder it sold.

The guidelines for the VSD have changed a little, and no links will be posted separately. Individuals post a comment to say they have completed their piece and where it is located. Numbers are growing and making it difficult to spend time collating all the entries otherwise. This way, its very similar, just click on the comments post and go to the individual's blog and art.

Gorgeous Belinda, but then I knew it would be! Thank you for the reference photo, we all had such fun with it, and I still haven't finished!

You captured the shadows and reflections so well in this. And I like the change you made to the surface the tray is sitting on. Thank you for supplying the reference this month! It was wonderful to paint from.

Thanks so much, Belinda, for allowing us to use your reference photo of the Pears.
I am glad to see that you posted your interpretation of the photo, too!
I had the pleasure of having one of my photos used as reference, and it is a thrill to see how all the many artists render it.
Love your pears!

Thanks so much for providing the pears photo for the virtual sketch date. I am new and I took advantage and took part for the first time.

Your painting is beautiful. I can see why it sold.

Great pears, Belinda. I love pears, to paint, not to eat. :)

Congrats on the sale.
