Clementine – VSD Jan 2009


This is Jeanette Jobson’s clementine. She left it out where we could all see it as the subject for this month’s Virtual Sketch Date (VSD). A reference photo is published on the Virtual Sketch Date blog once a month. We are invited to render the subject as we please, publish on our own blogs, and then notify the VSD folks about where we published.

Mine is done with Derwent watercolor pencils and Aquaflo waterbrush on a pocket size Moleskine watercolor sketch book. (5 in. by 3.5 in. )

    Hey Bob,
    great job, especially the shadow work, I know how hard that is to keep contained with wc pencils. Good conservation of whites as well..the highlights pop.

    Nice work Bob! I find watercolor pencils more difficult to work with than watercolor paints, but they don’t look difficult for you. Your colors are bright and clean and your clementine has good form.

    I like this especially the dark terra cotta color in the shadow of the orange.
