Well here it is at last.................... time to have your say.... and unless the guys get round to dreaming up Challenge 2 the vote will be definitive and for ever...... so dont hold back on that finger folks :D :D

I think we should hold the poll open if and until Challenge 2 arrives, dont you? Maybe theyre all still drunk outside that pub:D

Straps on trusty shield and sword............... good luck to both sides and thanks for taking part .............. it was fun if a bit extended...................

this will take you to the sticky ! (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=103920)

Wow: Thanks Rod for putting them all together for the vote.

Almost too close to call (cause they are all so lovely). I said ALMOST but have to hand it to the ladies.

Better luck in Challenge II, guys. :evil:

Great set-up for voting, made is easy for comparison purpose. This interesting challenge, JT and Rod.

I have same thoughts as Rod noted in his post. Had I been able to participate I would have gone technical, so guess that makes me a boy. :D Very nice entries from both sides. The references had quite a bit of interpretive stuff so producing the work would have been tough for me. Congrats to all who participated.

Be fun to have another one.

Well, the men tried their best but sorry guys....the women win because of sheer ingenuity and talent!!! Yes, yes, some of you men are somewhat talented also, I will have to admit :p , but the women seemed to try harder, came up with more paintings and took the challenge more seriously. You men seemed to have dropped off the face of the earth halfway through the challenge, like you gave up. So are we having another challenge, this time with the men coming up with the pictures we paint, or are you all wiped out guys?!? LOL :D

Men do win hands down, and if some of the people here voted with their head and not with their sex, then the vote would be indicative of that. :o
I must admit that the girls came close in many cases to beating the men but unfortunately they just came up a bit short in the talent part of the event. :evil: :evil: :evil:

All in all it was a fun event and lots of wonderful paintings as well as a few humorous pieces were produced.

As for why the men dropped off in the middle is that when you have won already why produce any more. The women continued in the vain hopes of coming up with something better.

Better luck next time ladies.

well, this is my first challenge to SEE - (I didn't participate) - but now that everyone else is wet - I understand the fun of these things and will join in next time. It's so funny to see/hear all the artists using the OTHER end of their brushes (i.e. lots of jabbing going on here)... lol

I voted for the guys just because they're doing a better job of jabbing IMHO. hehe

seriously, very nice work you participators... I didn't see who did it ... but the painting of the woman carrying the twin loads - with a super wet and vibrant background and details only on the lady... wow, very nicely done!

Well guys you got my vote. I agree with Rod the difference i saw was in the guys ability to really represent the technical aspects of the different pieces,especially the ones with the houses.
I love the gals flare and there brighter use of colour.
They all look great you have all done well.

i have to admit i voted for the guys. I like Tag's Distillery the best and Yorky's second best.
I commented to myself about the technical bent as I was looking through. I don't necc. think that made them better..... i just had favourites.
Thanks Rod for the voting setup, and Jaytee for the organizing.

When's the next one, guys??

I'm sorry but I thought we had much more time to send in our entry. I didn't understand the deadline was mid april. I think if there had been an actual deadline posted many more entrys would be on the womens side . I for one teach a class and my students take priority until the end of May. I'm looking at the Entrys Mr. Tagerrraa and I don't even see the big gun female painters on this site submitting their final entrys yet. I think your declaration of superiority is a little premature ......Wees wemon folk have delt with that sort of thing since puberty! If you waited for the real competition ....... well baby, We can paint your sox
off. :D :D :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:
Sorry if I speak the truth but at some point you just have to deal with it. I'm not saying the men have not got any nice paintings, I am saying There are better paintings to come from the women and you better hold yourself because we know we've already seen yous guys best stuff!

Rich darling,
I just counted the quality paintings that the women posted and the quality paintings that the men posted. I gave each painting one point. Every painting submitted DID NOT receive a point. On either the male or female side.
Now I could have been looking at a woman's painting and thought a man had painted it, but I think Jaytee and Rod did a great job of getting them all up on the screen and it seemed clear to me. :rolleyes: Of course, if that is the case, then the ladies win more points. I will give the guys extra credit for being professionals at perspective. However the girls still win by my modest little judging criterion.:p :angel:

I wasn't able to enter this challenge, too much on my plate to participate, so I haven't been following the progress. I just viewed all the paintings in Rod's Compilation Gallery (great job there, Rod!) and I want to say CONGRATULATIONS! to all the participants. There are some really terrific paintings on both sides.

However, after carefully reviewing the entire body of work, I gave my vote to the Ladies. They seemed to have the most creative entries, as well as the most vivid palettes. GOOD GOING, GALS! WAY TO GO!!!!

Hopefully I will be able to take part in the next challenge.

i have a question, what happened to the next one? i just want to know how long i have to wait before i can paint these wonderful references, or know if they were even chosen.

I think it is time to let this meaningless thread die and WET THE BRUSHES!!!

Say, Hough, when was the last time YOU painted. i haven't seen a watercolor from you in forever, just alot of talk.

Patty and Jaytee,

When is the end of the day? Since we are on a worldwide clock here in WC, shouldn't we define it so someone (a man) doesn't claim premature victory before the deadline expires?

Should we say Midnight, eastern time zone of the U.S., so we are all looking at the same clock?

Rich Williams
05-06-2003, 10:07 AM
I believe that midnight Grenich England Time is the world standard for time. That is where the time zones originate from.

I see that time has elapsed on this challenge and that it was a very very close contest. I think that all that participated in it had not only fun doing the paintings but learned from the experience.

I my mind everyone that participated are winners. The nice thing to my mind is that even though we were greatly outnumbered by the women that the men through, good work, honest effort, and just plain better painting were able to edge out our competition.

Congratulations Men Rule :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Hi Gang,

Our project leader Jaytee seems to be away at the moment. :)

I did Pm Jt for permission to close the poll at the correct time,
but 12 hours after that time I still had not received a reply .

So I closed the poll . it was late .

Rod.

Then a tie it is!! Thanks for helping Jaytee out Rod. It was a close one.....but I bet the next one won't be so close...the women will stomp all over the men. :D :clap: :clap:

Rod,

As moderator for challenge 2, it might be a good idea to post an official ending time for the challenge (in all its permutations worldwide) as the final days approach to avoid this confusion. Thanks.

To the "late" ladies who lost AGAIN.....may your mouths be ever flapping...... and your brushes either wet or dry ...would make no difference .......
Maybe a wee song would help yous at this time....

Shall we gather at the river?
The beautiful the beautiful river
Shall we gather at the river
And wash all our tears away.

:D :D :D :D :D :D :evil: :evil: :evil:

Oooooooooooooooooooops :o :o :o

Ive been dashing hither and thither so much with my visitor it seems I completely lost 24 hours :eek: :eek: :eek:

Sooooooooooooooooooooorry

and thanks to Rod for closing said poll................. at such a VERY apposite time :evil: :evil: :evil:

To make up for the error of my ways. .....the lapel pin is very close. but it will now have to wait till after said visitor gone ie after Sunday.

Will the guys ever forgive me................... course not............... theyll be prancing about pronouncing a moral victory......

but we know better, dont we girls ;) ;)

thanks for supporting the first challenge of 2003......lets make the next one an even higher standard and even more fun :clap: :clap:
