Virtual Sketch Date

10:20 PM

Decided to take a stab at the clementine used for the Virtual Sketch Date, http://virtualsketchdate.com/.  I got this great idea at about 8:30 tonight after seeing some of the other great pieces of art. I gave myself a little over an hour to complete it. 

Ta da! Here she is:
It was fun! Much, much looser than how I normally paint and that's a good thing. There are parts I like and parts I really don't like, as usual! Hope your weekend is going well!

  5. Beautiful Laure,
    I should give myself time limits too, but I usually have too many interruptions from the kids, love the clearness of the color, definitely no muddiness here. Very inspiring.

  8. Laure very nice job. Especially on the left part of the orange. Looks like I could reach in and grab that slice.

  14. Lovely--so bright. I admire how you captured the different shades of orange on the fruit and the peel--something I observed put couldn't pull off!
