January 2009 Virtual Sketch Date

Pen Sketch


Above is my entry for January's Virtual Sketch Date.

Thankyou to Jeanette Jobson for the reference photo and for all the organising.

This one was just a quickie and was just pen on paper when i had a spare bit of time.
It's one of the most hectic weeks of the year this week, my oldest son turned 5 and i am throwing him a big party as well as a few other family things go on so its pretty full on. I have fallen a bit behind already on my goals for sketching but i think as soon as i get all the party preparations out of my hair I will be back on track.

Anyway, again just want to say this is so fun to do ! I am so glad i did it even if it was only a quickie.

I like the loose feel of this. You've caught the shapes and solidity of the fruit very well.

Really nice for a quicky. Nice and loose. Sometimes I wish I could do loose. Happy Birthday to the 5 yr old.

I like the drawing qualities, the lines capture the clementine in a simple expressive way.

Love the very expressive line work in your drawing.

Belinda, I like your sketch. Your pen marks give the drawing an energy that the reference didn't have. That energy is a wonderful addition.

Good luck with the party!
