View Full Version : WDE July 7 2017 ***IMAGES HERE***

Welcome to the July 7 WDE. I am pleased to be your host this week.

Here are the rules, read them carefully. Then read them backwards...

Please wait until all 10 images 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, drawing, painting, sculpting, pogo-sticking, square-dance calling, you decide what to do for two hours.... 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. We want to know.

(The next part is pure cut and paste, I have no clue about digital art...) 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.

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, 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. If you critique someone's work, be nice.

Here we go:

A butterfly


Small green frog


Grey fox that used to appear when I was feeding stray cats


Tomatoes on the vine


M&Ms in a glass for a still life


A cellist with the North Carolina Symphony


Obligatory WDE chicken photo


An old (restored) car


Sunflower in the summer


My cat You


The challenge this week - use a limited palette - let's try 8 colors or less. (I know, I know, you just chose the M&M photo).

Thank you everyone, I look forward to seeing all your work. Here's me and my trusty camera, which will be taking pictures for my next hosting in August!

If anyone has trouble viewing the photos, please let me know. I am away from my regular computer, and am relying on my nephew's computer smarts (that means I've conned him into doing all my computer work for me :evil: ). I'll be glad to drop these in the RIL.

Lovely photos! Thanks Sandra:)

Wonderful photos Sandra. It's going to be hard to choose.

Just a note...if your nephew helps you again, tell him that the posts can handle images up to 800 x 800 pixels. He doesn't have to reduce them as far as he did.

Thanks for hosting.

Thanks Sandra - they are nice pics!
What Anne said above^^

and, if you can upload to the RIL that would really be good!
Images there can be as BIG as you wish, no limits (except a bottom one of file sizes being no smaller than 100k).:)

I will do that as soon as he wakes up. He's a big gamer and stays up later than most of us, lol. Sorry for the glitches, I'll get it worked out. :)

All great images. I really would love to have a larger version of the glasses with candies, if that's possible? Thanks!
