Every year I paint these clementines from la Corse. See last year’s sketches at CLementines.
…clementines from Corsica…
Sketch done in moleskine with pen and watercolour
The next two sketches were done a while ago. I just sketched some things around me – a container in the living room with brushes and pens and stuff and part of a bookshelf. I try very hard to keep the bookshelf, neat, but I am starting to think we will never have neat bookshelves.
..brushes and pens…

On Myfrenckitchen, I have posted some photo’s of a vendange in Vouvray that we did in Octobre. Good freinds have a bio vineyard where the harvesting is still done by hand. On one Saturday during the harvest period in October, all their family and friends get together for a day of grape harvesting. It was hard work, but a fun day, with a delicious lunch, many laughs and jokes and a messy grape fight towards the end of the day. I only took photos, because I didn’t want to hide from the work behind my sketchbook! you can see some photo’s here at Pears in red wine and a wine harvest.

I just really love your sketches!!!
gorgeous Ronell! my mouth is watering just looking at your clementines! –grapes too!
Wow! They’re stunning Ronell! What a lovely sketch… vibrant and glowing.
I do love the way you wash on color, Ronelle!
glorious color in the clementines image, and wonderful sketches!
Lover particularly -brushes and pens.
Bookshelves are supposed to be neat? Yours are much neater than mine 🙂 I adore your vibrant sketches!
thanks for stopping by everyone and taking the time to leave such a kind comment..as always, very much appreciated!
Who needs tidy bookshelves! The sketch is so much more charming than if it had been a neat orderly row of books.
I bought clementines yesterday, probably not from Corsica, though. And all through dinner I kept looking at them and thinking how pretty they looked on the blue plate. You captured their lovely shapes and color very well!
Lovely sketches! Such a nice flair with watercolor, bright, and sparing, and just perfect.
Ronell – May I please have permission to use your bookshelf sketch (above) on my young adult book review blog? I’ll definitely give you full artist credit & a track-back. If you have a watermarked version to prevent copying, that’s even better. I love your work!
