This is the third and last of the 'Challenges'planned for 2003 and is a development from the Guys v Gals.
'Bets'that were so successful in 2002.

Although the Guys v Gals element will remain......... there will be an open poll/vote after each challenge on which team won that round with an ultimate Cybercup at the end of the year........the challenge is really to yourself !

There is a great variety of subjects to choose from so why not try something new? A new medium, or combine mediums, a new style, a new or difficult subject, paint only part of the image, change the colours of the image..........but only if you want to.........render it straight in your favorite medium if you prefer. Everything, with the exception of pure digital manipulation of the reference photos, is positively encouraged :)
Base your entry(s) on one or more of the references images below. Enter as many as you wish.

When posting your entries: 1)describe what about this painting was a 'Challenge' to you.
2)note what medium you used and
3)(optional) approx. size of your piece :)

Thanks to everyone who submitted the many fine photos we had to choose from.
The 4 photos selected by popular vote for each theme are (drum roll):

Still Life:
Peppers and Cup by Pampe (won by a mile)
Nectarines and Pomegranet by Noreenemc
Vino by Noreenemc
3 Eggs in a Towel by Olika

Architectural:
Le Moulin by Pampe
Paladian Bridge by Debawills
Boston Boathouse by Karenjh
Wiesbaden Gargoyle by Zyffyr, by a whisker (photo finish), edging out 2 others by only 1 vote, Abbey by Andylavallee and Garden Shed by Zyffyr.

Floral:
Bouquet by TeAnne (by a full lap)
California Poppies by Noreenemc
Peony Macro by KaleidoscopeEyes
Lilac Dahlia by Madmum by a flip of the coin, in a 4-way tie to show. Be sure to take a look at the other three photos, the 2 above, (and over 100 more submitted) and keep them in mind for future project references. The 3 runners-up, in no particular order: Arley Rose by Yorky, Catwhiskers by Cahenry, Daffodil Fields by Zyffyr


The poll for the third challenge will be posted in late November using all entries up to that point. Challenge 1 for 2004 will be set up, led by the fellows, in January, using the 3 alternate themes already chosen by popular vote earlier this month. The 2003 Challenge Cup winners will be announced sometime in December by ?Rod? :-)

I just realised, in the still life there is no metal, and in the architectural there is only one close detail! What happened? Everyone chickened out of metal? :( (I voted for David's strawberries and collander!)

Here are the links to the Project Page and the Official Project Thread. Somehow we managed to get 3 threads started at once for this project. Let's stick with just the one "Official" 2003 Challenge 3 Tread. Sorry for the confusion. Gremlins in the wiring, I guess. ...........I swear :rolleyes: it wasn't me..........Terralyn
