:wave: Good Morning Everybody! I'm posting earlier than scheduled because it's a hectic day at work today. WDE first before work :lol:

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 programs - you could also say which program 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 MONDAY, 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, please post in its own thread and try to give the date/host of that particular week - if you can!

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

HERE WE GO . . .

Let's see some famous sites:

Of course, Athens won't be Athens without the Parthenon and the Caryatids:


I find these Caryatid ladies so amazing:


Good Government started in Greece (I think :D or was it in Rome??? Sorry). Anyway, here's Congress:

An Ampitheater (or the ruins thereof) on the way up to Parthenon:


Here's a very old looking church in the area of the Roman Market:

I walked a lot while in Athens and here are some of my favorite photos (it was so hard to narrow it down to just a few!):

2 Cats and a dog:




Some interesting People:

Last Six Images:

Some fruits I bought just outside the hotel:


Interesting shop display:

The statue of an angel near Congress:

I like the way that these trees seem to be dancing:

A café in the old city:

And last but not the least, the interesting guards marching in front of the presidential residence:


I hope there's at least one photo there that will catch your fancy and inspire you to paint. I will drop by as often as I can to see your beautiful works!

The challenge is to enjoy yourself! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Joel - thanks for posting so early!

To everyone - there will be a site-wide outage coming up this weekend, so please get your images to work on before or after this time:

On Friday, May 8 @ 10pm MDT - Saturday, May 9 @ 5am MDT, WetCanvas will undergo site-wide maintenance.

During this period, there is a chance of intermittent site downtime.

Just wanted to make you aware. Have a great weekend all!

Beautiful images Joel! I am going to Greece myself next week, so I might want to use your images to practise sketching some Greek scenes this weekend.

These photos are great! Thanks Joel.

ok. thanks for posting early :D
If those ruins were in the UK they'd be fenced off and everyone would have to pay to file past and look at them from a distance, ending with the exit via the souvenir shop! That's what they've done with stonehenge.
Those guards remind me of John Cleese from Monty Python doing his silly walks.
That tortoishell cat is beautiful.

Architecture is amazing, cats so lovely, people very interesting and the Barbie doll looking heads on steroids ought to be fun. Thanks Joel! Hope the site is back up tomorrow so we can post.
