Virtual Sketch Date

Annie and I have decided to join in and do Virtual Sketch Date.
Each month you do a sketch, painting, pen and ink, whatever, of the image they offer. Then you post your piece on your blog, and then VSK posts all entries and you can see all of the different works others have done of the same image.

Annie and I named this piece
Dapple for obvious reasons.
We did sketches in pencil, then used watercolors. Annie finished hers off with pen and ink.

The LA lurker says that both are really terrific. Which one is Annie's and which is yours?

Both are alive with such spirit...I like Annie's leaves and your beautiful perspective! Lovely

Such a lovely project to work on together. Maybe I'll invite my kids to participate some month. I like how Annie simplified the tree and focused on just a few leaves. Patrice I like the feeling in your painting that I am standing under it looking up.

Good job to both of you. The second tree looks so tall from that perspective.

How wonderful, working together! I love how you emphasized looking up at the tree.
Annie, It looks like those last leaves don't want to come down. Great sky.

To darling Frieda, and her Mom...what wonderful paintings!
I have enjoyed wandering about your blogs, and finding all sorts of interesting things.

And you are correct. The new First Family needs a Doodle just like Jasper. He is adorable!

Thank you both for sharing your wonderful world.

These are such beautiful entries. The top one especially, to my sensibilities is so eye-catching, so zen in it's simplicity. Love the "Make Peace."
