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.

see you soon
I love the strong colours you used in this, and that middle leaf with the touch of yellow!ReplyDelete
I too like your colors. Love the little head in purple peeping out. Glad you joined and had fun.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
This is a burst of color. I find this interpretation to be quite refreshing.
Wow, warms in the background to push those great cools around. Brilliant. I love your colors.ReplyDelete
Wonderful use of colour.ReplyDelete
Thank you everyone for the comments. I'm glad my color choices seem to have worked out. I wasn't so sure when I was painting it. I really appreciate the feedback and encouragement.ReplyDelete
I am so looking forward to next month's sketch date!
What wonderful colours, especially the purples and those gorgeous blues!ReplyDelete
Very nice - just pop over from the Virtual Sketchblog place. You have talent.ReplyDelete
Beautiful, Gail-- I love how many colors you got into this, and how jewel-tone they are. The drawing is also nice--the cabbage leaves have life!ReplyDelete
Gail I love your joyful, brilliant colours.ReplyDelete
Great job! So alive with those beautiful colors!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
I love the colors in your "cabbage" painting! Great job!ReplyDelete
This is such a happy-looking cabbage - I love those bright colours, some people's are soft and muted and other's are - pow! Viva la difference!ReplyDelete
Superb interpretation and yes, I have to agree, your use of colour is spectacular!ReplyDelete
Really beautiful colors, I love the way you approached the subject.ReplyDelete
You are a colorist for sure! Great!ReplyDelete
I love the labels on the tomato jars too. LOL
I think this was a difficult subject, but I love seeing how people treated it--just lovely! Gorgeous colors!ReplyDelete
Excellent colors. The blue leaves on the bottom are particularly stunning. I also like how you created such a varied background with the different colored leaves.ReplyDelete
this is awesome!ReplyDelete
