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

Title: 2003 Challenge 3
Project Leader: zyffyr
Relative Difficulty: Irrelevant
Type Restrictions: Any Type
Medium: Any Medium
Subject: Not Applicable
Days open for signups: Always
Maximum participants allowed: Unlimited

Description:

Hosts: painterbear and zyffyr
Grace Period: Unlimited
Reference Images: 12

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. Those who submitted photos, please add them to the Image Library so that we can continue to enjoy them.

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

Challenge 3 will run through November 30th. The poll for the third challenge will be posted in early December using all entries up to that point. The 2003 Challenge Cup winners will be announced after the poll is complete. :-)

Thanks Char and Felica, glad to see it up and on its way.

Looking forward to seeing some really beautiful paintings and WIPs along the way. We've got a wonderful selection of reference images.

Hope we get some of the male persuasion to join in too. We'll try not to intimadate them too badly—at least in the beginning. :evil: ;) :cat:

You're right about there being two Project threads, but there's still only one place to sign up and I didn't see your name!
This is only a problem when you're ready to comment on peoples work. I'm sure they'll work that out...:)

Well, Tag, I've been chasing yous, the mad Irishman, all over WC, that's what! Patience me boy. Go check your other inquiries on the 'mystery thread', and madmum's thread and any other thread you can find regarding this challenge. (Always the last to know, and the one with her name on it to boot, I don't know where that other thread came from..........but it's been put to bed. Leave it to a woman to fix things........while a man complains and blusters!)
All the various threads now have links posted as the last posts, by me, zyffyr, both to this OFFICIAL thread (it's the only one with working links) and to the OFFICIAL Project Page.
Do not go back to the other threads Taghera. You are currently at the right and only one. Now sign up, "get in, sit down, shut up and hold on!" as my favorite bumpersticker says. You're in for quite a ride! Terralyn

Here's the link to the Project Page and the Official Project Thread. (which is right where you are now, don't click it Tag!) Let's stick with just the one "Official" 2003 Challenge 3 Thread.

This is luscious, Tag. I couldn't figure out why everyone was so excited about this particular photo (no offence, I had visions of dark brown lines for the tudor house and brown water, I guess, and I like my paintings to scream color.) You showed me though! I might even try to do this one. But , I'm off now to play with my eggs. Terralyn :D

Terralyn, I'm sorry if I caused any headaches, I thought the first project thread to show up was the real one (who wouldn't?) and wanted everyone to know it was there as soon as possible, so I told people to head over to the project (not intending to start a discussion in the general forum).

Well, Hugh, that magic purple brush you bought is not only fast, but it is also quite talented. Lovely interpretation of the Moulin and Lulu's house. :cat:

As Alex said, the guys are ahead at this point in the game thanks to you, but the gals are working on several interesting paintings. Don't look back, someone may be gaining on you.;)

Yep freehand, while looking at the photo on computer screen. Deciding which one to try next..

A question: Do we do them all, or one of each, or as many as we want? Seems I forgot how this went.

Terrific rendition of the gargoyle's face. He looks a little forlorn and down in the mouth, doesn't he.

"A question: Do we do them all, or one of each, or as many as we want? Seems I forgot how this went. ...Ksar"

You can do as many of the reference photos as you like between now and November 30—there is no limit on the number of entries an artist can add to the Challenge.

I like it, it looks alive!

On my side I started the eggs, with pastels, 24x32 cm (8x10), and I have already choosen a technique for each of the 12 photos, but it looks hard to finich by end of November... that will be a real challenge for me.

"I have such problems with fabic, but with practice I hope to get better."

That's exactly the winning attitude you need to try to do something that is challenging to you and stretch yourself and your art.

This is a challenge to yourself as well as between the guys and the gals.

I also noticed that Mr. Taghera only submitted 1 picture in the last challenge and the same in the one before that......and none in the nudie challenge..... Does this mean, we've seen the last of 'im til next year? btw, I think he started before the gun went off.:rolleyes:

This is also my first project here on Wetcanvas. Yes, I am a newbie.

As I am reading this list I am coming up with more and more
questions and starting to fear I am in the wrong place?:confused:

Does the work have to be in water colors? Eeep.

Do I have to do something with all of the reference photos?

If so....I am doomed. I only work in pencil and one painting takes me weeks.

Worried :(

It surely is coming along nicely.......All these reminds me of when I was in art class in the 5th form. For a whole term all we did was eggs, draw eggs everywhich way Lol from dots to shading you name it we did it. Even had to draw egg cartons with eggs in. Funny I will never forget that :):D

Whew.. thanks. I was getting worried when i saw all the water color works and that this message board was listed under water colors.

I love that quote you use about horses. Mine walks all three places during different parts of the day. Guess that just makes him badly trained.

Terralyn, ArcticRose, Ksar, thanks for the kind comments!

It is pastels and as I did it on Yellow Canson mi-teinte, I had to add a lot of layers which help a lot for the texture. The challenge for me was to use the soft pastels (I haven't been doing that for 5 years at least).

I expect to finish it most probably tomorrow.

Anne.

This "novel" (with plenty of computer practice), is dedicated to Tag. :evil:
This is also my first project here on Wetcanvas. Yes, I am a newbie. Welcome! Welcome! Can't wait to see your finished Greenman. (I explained to Walt that he's a greenman, not a gargoyle......don't think he got it though.) As I am reading this list I am coming up with more and more questions and starting to fear I am in the wrong place? Nope. Stay right here. Don't move!Does the work have to be in water colors? Eeep.A little history: This Challenge Project, tho NEVER only a watercolor project, originated in the Watercolor forum, so it has remained here throughout all the Challenges. We do try to post announcements in the Cafe G, to get all members involved.Do I have to do something with all of the reference photos? You can even, only paint ONE of the reference photos.......that's all Taghera is up to, apparently. :evil: btw, don't let him bother you, when he finally gets up and over his hangover, and makes an appearance........he'll be busy bothering everyone else. :rolleyes:
I only work in pencil and one painting takes me weeks. I started out in CP, but decided that I HAD to learn to use watercolor, 'cause one colored pencil painting took me FOREVER. Little did I know that ALL my paintings, regardless of the medium, take me forever. LOL I'm going to have to paint night and day to keep up with all the projects I have committed to!
For a whole term all we did was eggs....... JJ, I'm surprised you can even LOOK at an egg now, much less paint one. (5th form, that's our equivalent of 5th grade? elementary school?)

Thank you Arctic Rose, CharM, JJ and Ksar for your encouragement.

Love your drinking smiley, Rosie. Looks just as I image Tag to look. :D Do you know where I can acquire more smileys to use in my posts? I'm addicted! :rolleyes: :D Terralyn

Interesting painting, Hugh—which Challenge 3 reference photo did you use for your inspiration?

I've heard of artistic license, but I'm not quite able to decide if this is based on the Fishing Shanty, the Palladian Bridge, or the French Moulin.:confused:

Tsk, tsk, tsk, Hugh, please ask one of your friends at the Pub to read the Challenge instructions to you. The only reference photos that are supposed to be used in the Challenge itself are the 12 that are posted on the first page of the Challenge thread—4 architectural ones, 4 florals; and 4 still lifes.

The other links are to the threads where people submitted photos to be voted on for use in the Challenge. The top vote getters are posted as official Challenge references, but all the photos were so outstanding, we decided to make them available for people to use in paintings that are not part of the Challenge. That is why the links are there to the photo submission threads.

Sorry, you struck out this time, even though it is a very nice painting.:cat: :evil:

BUT

IN ALL FAIRNESS to you

you need to know that this PROJECT has a history (and a great deal of insanity) involved.

It started as a challenge between the men and the women here in the WATERCOLOR FORUM....

now we are into our third try......of course the men will lose again

So...you are more than welcome to ride along....enjoy the view, use the reference photos

Just be aware that the banter may be BIZARRE!

5x10 soft pastel with the a bit less light and a lot less bread.

Well, I didn't have anything more than diet vanilla coke around while I completed this piece -- next time I spend 2 and a half hours cozied up with a bottle of wine I'm going to make sure it's the real thing. :)

I figured this project needed some pastel kicked up. :D

The royal purple of the cloth really sets off the rest of the objects in the painting.

Great clarity and glassiness in the wine glass too.

I like the simple blue background on the wall, it is there but it doesn't take away attention from the main subject of the painting.

It is coming along nicely.

I really like the green color accented by the bright red berries. Looking forward to the next step.

I first tried Color Pencil about 5-6 years ago and with in a few months i gave away all my other art suppiles. This is the perfect medium for me since i adore both blending and detailing.

I am very upset though. When I took my green man out of the scanner it got bent. It has a huge crease in it now. :mad:

Hope I can iron it flat.

He is sooo cool. I'm trying to free-hand a sketch of him, and darn, I wish Walt had taken his picture head-on, dead-center! I want him to be symetrical but the photo doesn't show him that way. I think I'm going to erase it into oblivion. LOL. You're doing a wonderful job. I love working with cp, esp. for the detailing, but also the shading and the ability to incorporate so many colors without loosing them under washes etc. When things slow down, I'll have to get back to them. You've inspired me. Terralyn

btw, with the red berries, he'd make a great Christmas card.
