View Full Version : WDE March 29, 2013 - Images are here!

03-28-2013, 10:06 PM
I will be posting 16 images and a challenge.

Please wait until all are uploaded before commenting - thank you.

You have 30 minutes to make your choice and choose your materials - you may use any medium.

For the next two hours, just go for it……then STOP!, scan or photograph your work and post it in your own new thread with your title, beginning with WDE, plus date, plus title.

When you introduce your work, please add a description of size, medium, support (paper, canvas etc) and time taken.
If your work is digital, we'd appreciate a description of whether it's freehand drawing/painting, manipulated image or done using the filters available in some programmes - you could also say which programme you've used.
All are acceptable but we'd like to know the "hows, whys and wherefores"!!

Use WIP for any work in progress at the 2 hour mark, and MI for multiple images if other works are to be added before the following Monday.

NB. To avoid forum flooding, please put all of your work during the weekend, for the current WDE, into a single thread: multiple threads will be merged!
From the following TUESDAY, you may open a new thread for later work.

You have the whole week to participate - until the next WDE starts (usually Friday). If you finish a piece after that time, we now run a 'Catch-up' thread in the forum each month where you can post any WDE not completed in its allotted week .... it's a sticky near the top of the forum page.

After posting your contribution, please view others’ entries and comment and encourage when you can. Unless requested, please refrain from critiquing.

1. Starting off at the beach in Hawaii - this was the view across the road where we were having breakfast - puts you in the right mood in the morning.

2. A frangipani tree outside the hotel, the flowers are so fragrant.

I think this flower has a different colloquial name but I just can't remember it now! Maybe someone here knows.

3. How about this announcer at a luau? Doesn't he look like a colorful character? He was!

4. There are no peacocks in Hawaii as far as I know but what gorgeous coloring on this one, it would fit right in! (from the RIL, thanks to mbeckett)


5. A zinnia in my favorite color, Tangerine!

All images are linked to the larger sizes in RIL (except the train), click on them to see the larger size.

The challenge: Use the color 'tangerine' (bright orange) somewhere in your painting. (easy if you pick the zinnia or the flower basket :lol: )

I hope you enjoyed our journey from one tip of America to the other and I hope you find something that sparks your creativity this weekend! :wave:

Thanks for hosting, Tangerine! I hope to be able to do at least one this weekend. I love that fence on the beach. It would be gorgeous in tangerine! :D

Love the beach fence and seagull; may combine the two and add tangerine.

Oh those dolls are absolutely stunning! Thank you for wonderful references this week!

Lovely refs and challenge. Might get to join in but I'm at my brother's at the moment and not sure if he has a printer that prints colour or has ink etc. Have to work with ref next to work because of my eyesight.

Those dolls are crazy cool. I don't know if I can do anything this weekend, but surely it must have something to do with the dolls.

03-29-2013, 05:48 PM
The dolls do seem to be popular - did not expect that but it's cool! :lol: Hope you find some time to come paint with us Susan!
