October 2008 Virtual Sketch Date Reference Image

http://belindalindhardt.blogspot.com/2008/10/october-virtual-sketch-date.html
UPDATE! All entries for the October Virtual Sketch Date should be posted and available for viewing. Remember, there will be no list of links. Just have a peek in the Comments section and go to the individual's link or blog to view their work.

Thanks so much to everyone for participating and especially to Belinda for a fabulous image to draw and paint.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to the October Virtual Sketch Date!

The reference for the sketch date is above. Please click on the image to see the larger version. This lovely image was provided by Belinda Lindhardt. You can visit Belinda's blog here. Below are the guidelines for participating in the Virtual Sketch Date. The purpose is to have fun with some online artist friends.

How It Works
  1. You have until Saturday, October 26th to complete your drawing post it on your blog.
  2. When you complete your piece, post a comment on this post. This will be your link to your image for others to see. If you have multiple blogs, it is helpful if you can leave a link to or the title of the blog that will have your Virtual Sketch Date image.
Art Guidelines
  1. Any medium is fine -- graphite, charcoal, digital painting, colored pencils, watercolor, pen & ink, etc. have all been used.
  2. You are free to crop the image however you want -- include what you want, exclude what you don't.

Katherine Tyrrell said...

Rose/Jeanette - why not set up a Flickr group and have people post their images on there (like the Everyday Matters people)? Then we could see them all together.

Rhonda Bartoe Tucker said...

I'm in!

Pears!! Yay!!!

Barbara Weeks said...

The process seems a little different. Simpler? Do we still need to comment before as well as when we post the sketch?
Either way I'm in.

Rose Welty said...

Barbara, you are right, you do not need to comment before you post. There is no longer any need to say "I'm in". We just need a comment after you post so that people can use your comment to find your post.

We will probably revisit the process again after this month as we've had some good ideas, it is just a busy month and we needed a quick solution.

Finished! :)

I have tried to get a wordpress profile to take a comment here, and I can't seem to get it to "take".
I would love the URL option to be made available. Any chance?

My pears are posted too. I think the idea of a Flickr group might be a good idea too.

Sorry but I've got no idea how to do a link in the comments box....

I wasn't going to, but I did!
I have just posted mine.
Many thanks to Belinda.Pears seem to be one of those great classic subjects. Flickr sounds good, I agree, as the cross referencing becomes huge.

I am a newbie here - introduced by Borromini Bear - I realize that I am nowhere near the skill of you artists, however I am on a journey to learn & improve. Here is the link to my piece of work for the pear photo.

I certainly had fun. I had some blogger problems. However, it is now up and ready for viewing. Thank you so much for such an interesting and challenging photo, Belinda.

Paulette said...

As I looked at the drawings and made comments, I made a list of the participants. You can see it on my blog.
I have to agree with the VSD people, it is a big job. Even making a comment on each one is going to be hard if it keeps growing.
