Welcome to the June 2008 Virtual Sketch Date!

The reference for this sketch date is above. It was graciously provided by Jennifer Rose Phillip of Fuzzy Dragons fame. I hope that everyone is as excited as I am.

  2. You have until Saturday June 21st.
  3. You should then post your entry on your blog sometime on Saturday June 21st.
  4. I will then do a post (on this blog) on Sunday the 22nd with links to everyone's entry.
Art Guidelines
  1. Any medium is fine, graphite, charcoal, digital painting, colored pencils, etc have all been used.

I'm in, although I'll probably only manage a quick sketch this month. I know my week ahead is looking very busy.

Beautiful flowers Jennifer!

Rose - is it possible to post a a 'full-size' image on Flickr ( or somewhere that provides images that are bigger than Blogger allows?

Rose Welty said...

Great everyone, this is so fun.

Katherine, I have emailed Jennifer to see if she has a higher res photo. If she does and agrees, then one of us will upload it. I'll update the post with a link later. Yes, I should have thought of that option earlier!
