To continue the tradition of this kind of funny to be in challenge I invite you, gals and guys to join this new 2004 trial.

LOL Jijo.... good one!! Paint what you hate most huh, but try to do a good job of it? That does sound like a big challenge. :D :D I can just see Tagster painting his hateful flowers, nice little frilly pink ones. :evil: :evil:

Wow, finnally aproved... I was waitin for it.
Hi Gudrun, thanks for joining.
Hope to see many friends here, and also some gals.

OK, the subject is easy, but I need your help to select some ref pics, after that we can vote for the definitive ones.
Remember they must be those subjects you hate to paint.
I am going to select some kitties, or pinki flowers.
Thinking of sport cars and other stuff for you babies.

It's going to be tough finding something I actually hate the idea of painting. (I'd like painting a nice race car or cool old truck..lol) Of course, I tend toward the weird side of a woman anyway..lol :rolleyes: :D But, I'll be on the lookout Alex.

[QUOTE=Jijo]A new project has been announced in the WetCanvas! project system!

OK - I am going to accept this challenge. I am new here and my water color talents date back to fingerpainting. My tools at present are a shinny new tray of Crayola water colors and some oil brushes I used to oil paint years ago and trust me that was nothing to write home about.

Now my only delima is what to paint. Racism? A sink of dishes? A plate of Liver and onions? A snake? Laundry? Bats? Oh and yuck the TV show Fear Factor! Can I make a college of all of the above with room to add more as the notions arise? Hummm who knows where I can buy a 6 foot by 6 foot canvas to hold all these things? So many things, so little canvas!

I joined. I replied in a different thread that I did, but didn't realize there was an "official" one about it. Anyway, I hate painting landscapes, so I assume that'll qualify as something I can do/try? Thanks!

Hi people, time to start posting ideas from where to select.

As you've seen the project image is a turtle, I got the idea from that. A friend ask me to paint a turtle he wants to give his turtleloving wife as a present, and gave me that ref photo to copy from. Bad times for me, I tried several times and never finished, always look horrible. But thinking of it as a fun challenge might be i learn something from now on.

Lets go looking for terrifying subjects at the library.

Hi I'm in here too - been thinking about what I hate - could be a load of rats with red eyes running towards me - but that's not to do with painting eh?

Maybe an action shot -

Horses at the races?
cyclists zooming past a winning post?

I'll look in RIL maybe there will be something there for me to hate painting :evil:

Alex reading the project description everybody thinks may be he/she should paint what he/she hates, I thought that also and thought about spiders ore men sitting in front of TV watching football :evil: :evil: ...May be you change a little the description of the project, I read more postings from people who think they should paint rats and mice ore I don't know :D

I've signed up but was puzzled about what we are to paint until I read the part, its about subjects that we don't normally enjoy painting? Since I'm new to watercolor there's a HOST of things I'm afraid to try SO ..........*closes eyes and throws the dart* , *peeks* "Oh no, it landed on machines!"

Or all that whining about man and woman all their proud showing off different behaviour, learned as kids cutting off so much of their personality. These things can make me hate the whole world. Anybody for a project "Paint what you hate"? :(

:) Cool...weŽll exchange addresses anyway for the bunny project in april, would be nice to meet you!

I still hate the idea to touch a cockroach but once in Thailand, at night, one crawled across my cheek. I jumped up in horror and turned on the light, saw the bug falling to the bed where my head had been and dashing off. But the objective touch on my skin was so subtle and soft, nobody had ever touched me like that cockroach did ;) Later I started this painting but never finished it, maybe here is my second chance ;)

numina, the project information card says that the "Grace Period" is unlimited. That means that you can paint and post your painting whenever you get it done. Most people start when they sign-up and post soon after, then there are folks who like to take their time, do a good job and post later, like yours truly.

Can someone please explain exactly how this works to me? I'm a tad confused. Do we all paint the same picture? -- girls paint one & guys paint another of their choice? If so, how do we decide which one we all paint? Or do we just pick from a bunch of them for ourselves? Thanks for the help.

Here is an entry!!!!

I call it migraine (Having had one on the weekend....forgot just how disgusting they really are). And I'm always looking down a toilet bowl, usually dirty (the only time I nag myself about how slack I can be. With a heightened sense of smell it only adds to the whole sensory experience!)

I have no idea either...so I just did something I hate. I've never done anything abstract before, so it was kinda fun (does that defeat the whole purpose

Want to try my idea and throw a dart, paint what it lands on. Make sure the items on the dartboard are not your favorites.

Mumma 4x, why did you get the idea that girls and guys are expected to paint something different? I think the project information is simply to paint something that you dislike to paint. I didn't see anything in the threads that said we are all to do one picture.

Sue Galos
03-23-2004, 06:48 PM
Okay, looking at previous challenges leads me to believe that there are pre selected images assembled and the group tries to paint as many as possible - the compition appears to be quality as well as quantity. We need Alex to explain and or confirm this as he is the "guru" in charge of this particular project.

Hi gals... here I am, nearly alone at the guys team... (have you invited your beloved colleagues??)
As the guru I am. just enjoying your chat.
Waiting for some more to join...
I appreciate a lot you for joining at the very begining, so we'll have to wait a bit more, or do you expect to fight against just Bill and me?
The point is important cause to vote male's subjects we need their opinion.

Did you finnally understand that the subject is "what you hate painting" not just "what you hate"? I dont see fun painting horrible things.

this is the way:
asking some conspicious guys to join ( and of course all the newbies too)
wait for them to post some hateable painting subjects (might be they hate the same things as you... or not...)
Voting for lets say 8 (eight) or ten subjects to paint.
Attach them as ref pictures to the project.
flow painting and chatting for a while ( how much time is it souposed to be ???, this one is my first challenge leading case.)
Vote for the team winner,

thats all, thanks for your patience, and help me a bit... still working for the family maintenance..

It was mentioned that this was a guys vs. girls thing. Then someone posted some pictures for the guys to paint (flowers & kitties), then some for the women (cars & trucks). So, I naturally assumed that meant we'd be painting something different based on our gender.

My dart landed on "machines" so like it or not, looks like that's somewhat close to what the guys are going to assign us gals. Talk about patience, we're waiting for you men to get off the sofa, grab a can of beer and after spending hours musing over the photos, make a selection and get on with it.

...I tried something simpler - I looked through the project archives and decided that the things I simply DON'T want to paint (apart from portraits) is fantasy...YICK - fairies, angels, ...(Apologies to all who like these things).

Does that mean I should join the boys?

It's a bad day for me today so I can relate to the theme of looking down a toilet bowl. It's funny I was thinking about painting what I hate and the idea of the cat liter box came to me cause I always have to change the liter box, but unlike you I'd paint the poops to cause I feel like life has a lot of poop, but still beautiful piece of art. Maybe like poop in a toilet we can flush the poop in our lives down the toilet, that's my fortune cookie esque wisdom for the day :) .......love the motion in the piece, rich hues. :clap:

I think you did good on the turtle painting, only problem spot I see in the turtle's neck but I would have a very hard time painting a turle's neck myself too wrinkly, but even some of the turtle's neck worked out good. Turtle's shell I particularly like, the rich colors used in that turtle's shell are really nice - for me that's the real highlight of that piece I'd say that paintings a sucess :clap: and turtle's they are ugly in real life they's wrinkly and homely looking - anybody out there in artist cyber land got any good picture's of really old wrinkly old people just wondering (cause wrinkles are really hard to paint)????

The elephants look good, you got the wrinkles on them right, that's just how they look :D I think the painting would've been better with a different background like a desert would've been cool. Or the grass a little lighter then the tree's cause right now the tree's and the grass are so the same shade they look like the blend together to much to me, but maybe that's the effect you were going for? Very nice painting :)

Just add some blues to those trees ( or grey) that should push them back and if you still aren't there with it, add some ocher/taupe/beige? to the grass
otherwise, the elephants are fine!

JJ, this is looking great sans the grass :evil: You know my fond affection for rusty subjects :D

I despise grass too. :mad: However, after some current reading, spatters, splatters sponging and a fan brush are all great tools to use for painting grass...but I'm sure you already knew that.

Looking forward to your progress. You've come so far in your skills!! I'm sure this will be another testimony to that very fact. :)

JJ! Your grass around the truck is looking awesome!! You also have a great "base" established in the background. I know you're not done, but IMHO, I would add just a few 'tips' of grass peeking over the far side of the hood. I see some in the passengers window too :)

Do you use much of the spattering technique? When you're all done, a few dark spatters can really make the grass zing and make it appear there are little seed heads, wildflowers, etc.

You'll be just fine on this. Remember, study it and take your time!! Your 'gourd' painting is a shining example of what you're capable of when you stay 'focused'. YA....easy for me to say huh? :evil: ;)

I have learned NOT to paint anything when I don't 'feel' it, if that makes any sense. I'll set it aside and then one day everything will feel 'right' and then I proceed and 99% of the time it turns out great!

Will be checking back :)

03-28-2004, 07:45 AM
Oh yes I know all to well not to paint when I don't "feel" like it.. :D stuffed up many possibilities doing this. I am slow sometimes..:D:D

Now Splattering.. Good tell me more???

It is something I don't do as I never think of it, but I am glad you mentioned it..

So........ would I splatter is a brown say to make it look like grass heads???

I shall have to practice, as I am known to have a heavy hand..

I have a lot of work to do on the grass tho' before I get to that point..

I am still making little blades of grass and then adding a wash. A little darker each time..

I am trying hard not to rush it, as I really want to have good grass for once in my life..:D

Annetta
03-28-2004, 08:22 AM
When I spatter, depending on the quantity, effect I'm after, I select my brush accordingly. I usually use a small round, moderately load it with paint and then tap that brush against another round object in other hand. Since you have a heavy hand you could go with a much smaller brush to spatter with. Like you said, practice on a scrap piece first :D

Some spatters can be very dark (like dark green or brown) and some spatters can be lighter for contrast. One nice thing about spattering, with tissue in hand, if you spatter and dont like it you can usually immediately blot it off.

Good luck and will be checking back! :D

I think I'm crazy. One of my pet dislikes is painting children. So, what do I do? I go to the image library and find a picture of a young child to try to paint. ( Do I upload the image somewhere?? Thanks, Crias ) Anyway, it's slow going, and I don't think I got the look of a "young" child.......how do you do that, anyway?
I know there has got to be some sort of secret! Help!!!

HI! I am here to apologize profusely....especially to the girls! I signed up for this project and, in case you haven't noticed, I have not entered anything.
Right after I signed up for my very first project here, we found that my 88 yr old mother-in-law has to have heart bypass and valve replacement (surgery to be 3/30/04).
I hope my failure to join in with a painting hasn't upset the battle of the sexes here by leaving the girls short of a girl and, hope that you all won't groan if I sign up for another project at another time.
So I will pop in from time to time and lead some cheerleading for the girls who, IMHO, are WAAAAAAAAAAY ahead! :D :clap: :clap: :clap:

I think your grass looks good....only nit ( and its an itsy bitsy teeny tiny one) would be that its very uniform. There needs to be a bit of variety..in direction of blades and maybe in color. Otherwise, I see nothing wrong with it.

But then, I'm not a "legal" grass expert anyway, and my illegal grass involvement ended several years ago...... :D

YAY!! Looks good!

so here is some crystal .... in this order, by these people
1. chocholly
2. madmum
3. TeAnne
4. mustcreate
5. olika

I dare EVERYONE to try one of these!!! :evil:

Ok, I'm late getting involved in this one... as I was going through the posts I thought I couldn't think of anything I really do not like to paint until I saw these.... detail -- I hate detail. Patience is definately not one of my virtues. Perhaps this will help me to learn a little patience....

I've joined this project but haven't been able to submit anything yet. Hopefully this week.

I've really enjoyed seeing the old trucks, lol the kitty litter box, and all of the others but have especially enjoyed reading the friendly jousting and competition you all are having. So is that the deal this time, we all paint old trucks, the crystal etc?

I am intimidated by street scenes so think that will be my first. Perspective on street scenes makes me shake in my shoes. I love seeing all the street cenes that other artists paint and wish I could do them. So will just have to jump in, shaky shoes and all.

Cheers,
Ann
