A new project has been announced in the WetCanvas! project system!

Title: Sun! Sun! Sun!
Project Leader: rapolina
Relative Difficulty: Irrelevant
Type Restrictions: Any Type
Medium: Any Medium
Subject: Not Applicable
Days open for signups: Always
Maximum participants allowed: Unlimited

Description:

As most of us are going towards summer (sorry for those living in the southern hemisphere, but anyway they just left it!); this project has the goal to interpret the sun, any way you like: in landscape, alone, as fireball, astrological or whatever way you imagine.

It would be interesting to see how everyone interprets this subject, in total freedom.
There is no reference for this project, you can work by imagination or from your own reference.



So, let's shine our brushes!

What a lovely subject! One can paint a "portrait" of the sun or a painting that shows the light from the sun (right?)
I have signed up and hope to post a few paintings during the summer.

Did a little research: this (http://library.thinkquest.org/15215/Culture/egyptian.htm) site is very useful, lots of information on artistic and cultural representations of the sun.

Rapolina, this is a truly lovely painting by your daughter. Wonderful.

If I can find the time to participate more on Wet Canvas, I'll certainly try to enter your project.

I see that this project is in the Watercolor forum, but the medium restrictions is listed as "Any Medium" So my question is. Do the entries for this project have to be in watercolor??:confused: :)

Thanks for this project. Just returned from a show and really needed to play a little. Did three tonight, all in different mediums plus one that I did for that show. Love all the different interpretations. Hope to have time tomorrow to comment on all the sweltering and reflective sun paintings.

Great work everyone !

it's a painting my daughter did last year, when she was 11... the others one are mine...:o i know she's much more talented then me!:) and i'm proud of her.
yesterday i told her that this paintings was apprecciated, and she said "why? it's so simple, i did nearly nothing... paper was yet orange, i just blew on a watercolor wash and added few pastels..." i anserwed that art should not be mandatory complex...

ciao, rapolina.:cat:

Jakeally
05-28-2003, 07:33 AM
Lol.... trust me to get it all wrong....please congratulate your daughter for me. I think when you do a quick painting and keep it simple it often turns out really well.
It was the composition in her painting that really grabbed me:cat:

Lisilk,

Thank you for commenting on my piece. It is funny you mention the aboriginal feel because I sensed that too! Or even possibly something almost tribal, not sure if that is the right word.

You have done a lot of great pieces but this one I chose to comment on because it has a whimsical, playful feel to it and I like it very much. Keep em coming! :D

Lovely and very subtle. I can feel that ocean rolling by the upward turn of the wave on the right.

Thanks to everyone who commented on my drawing.

I have another coming.. very different from the happy-face sun I posted. I ran out of violet blue colour pencil needed to complete the other drawing, and wouldn't you know it, my order of pencils came in with everything intact.. except the violet blue colour pencils. :rolleyes:

Nice work everyone, it's good to see such diverse interpretations on the common theme of old Sol.

Thank you Kduncan and Chris. Silk just soaks up those luminous dyes and seems to lend itself to stylized designs.

Thanks for your kind comments. Kduncan, look forward to your new entry.

Hi Rapolina!

Thank you for looking and commenting! :)

It is a bit strange. Don't know if I'd choose that color again but at the time I thought the black ink in the waves and the rest of the pic might give it a kind of silhoutte or cut out look. One problem I have is forcing myself to just try different things so I am happy on the one hand that I allowed myself to try something different. Oddly enough, I actually like the waves and sand part better than the sun! :rolleyes:

Well, you don't know till you try sometimes... :D Thanks for looking! The next one will be more traditional...

Thanks for the opportunity in this project.

Mpopinz: Thank you for looking! :D I am not familiar with the little prince. It was just a "fun" piece. It actually reminded me of something aborigine for some reason. Also made me think of that song, "Here comes the sun little darlin', Here comes the sun...it's alright"...

Hi all

Ref for this was a pic posted by Pam, cant find it right now showing the forest fire's smoke radiating thru the sunny foggy day over the mountains and lake. I thought it would make a good painting. I posted this somewhere else to but cant remember where.
