Virtual Sketch Date



Today is the day we have to submit our cabbage drawings or paintings for the August Virtual Sketch Date.

Here is mine. I wanted strong color. I don't think I have ever painted a cabbage before but I really enjoyed it.

This was my first time participating in the sketch date and I plan to continue. It will be interesting to see what everyone else came up with.

  3. I love the rainbow bands of color! The rest of the entries show me how little I know about color. So glad you joined us this month.

  12. Gail, I'd say you achieved your goal of strong, clean colors. They really make the piece pop! Also the negative painting for the background is nicely done.
