Virtual Sketch


This is my first submission to Virtual Sketch. This is where a group of artist get together and paint or draw from the same reference photo. I was going for a Beatrix Potter look. Let me know what you think.

Yes -I think you got the look you were going for - the mailbox in the foreground added so much and made a cold distant scene look cozy and welcoming - Great JOb!

Before I even read your description I thought it had a illustration look to it. Beautiful work!

I like it very well, Debbie. It is a great composition and well done too.

The addition of the mailbox has added so much to our 'cold' reference photo.
A good illustration tells a story, and the sketch makes me want to grab the mail from the box, and hurry back to the house for some tea!
