View Full Version : WDE29DEC2013 - Snowy Egret

I just found this forum last night and decided to play. Hope I'm not too late. It took me a while to even figure out what this was about. Anyway, I chose the egret to paint since, well, I paint birds. This is 6 X 8 on canvas paper in acrylics, and it took me about an hour and ten minutes to do.

Excellent painting! Yes, you did it right and you are so welcome to come join us any time you like. You have all week to 'play'. Usually everyone tries to do it over the weekend, but there are some who can't do it until later in the week. The images will remain up top until the next ones are posted (usually Fridays). But you are welcome to download those you like and try anytime you feel like it.

Thanks everyone! After I found this formum, I then went surfing other places, and then I couldn't remember how I'd gotten over here in the first place. Almost didn't upload my painting because when I did finally find it, I didn't have a "manage attachments" box when I went to start my thread. I finally found a little button to push, and voila.

I have been off and on wet canvas for a couple of years now, and I always seem to find something new when I come back. This place is amazing. So much info, I don't even know where to start.
