Graphite on Bond

      Virtual Sketch Date is a blog that posts a picture once a month and those who want draw the posted reference in any medium they choose.  This drawing is from a picture taken by Jeanette Jobson.   Don’t be surprised if you see this in future.  I think I’ll want to do this in color later on.

This image goes well with the warm and sunny weather we have been having.  I love it.  You can open the windows and smell cut grass and grills stokin’ from around the neighborhood.  There is nothing like it in the world.  It reminds me of going to my grandma’s house in North Carolina.  All I’m missing is the smell of Pine-Sol.

  1. A lovely graphite drawing of the bud. Glad you took part this month in the virtual sketch date.
    I am enjoying spring in Vancouver, Canada. The blossoms here are absolutely beautiful this year.

  2. Congratulations! I agree this is a great pencil work! I personally like graphite compositions and I believe this image has a high degree of difficulty that you made magistrally.
