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

Title: Lulu`s Farm...
Project Leader: animal
Relative Difficulty: Irrelevant
Type Restrictions: Any Type
Medium: Any Medium
Subject: Not Applicable
Days open for signups: Always
Maximum participants allowed: Unlimited

Description:

In March 2002, Lulu ( a long-standing member of WetCanvas) and her husband John, retired from large-scale farming, and I wanted to start a project for them so that there will always be a reminder at WetCanvas of their farming days. All the animal reference pics are from the farm, the views are of the farm or can be seen from the farm, the veggies are from the vegetable garden that John tended, and the photo of Lulu and John is a recent one.

Feel free to add to the memories for Lulu by painting,drawing or sculpting using any of the reference pics posted here.

I'm trying to post comments on the pictures, but as often happens in the project threads, when I click Send it asks me to log in again, then when I do it bumps me off completely and I lose the post altogether.
So. Try it this way:

Rod, outstanding as usual!
TeAnne and falchion, like your digitizing.
Caron, great colors and your bunny does indeed seem important beck there.
Leaf, your donkey is adorable...wants a pat or a carrot, or both!
:D
Nice idea for a project, Animal


(sigh. Hope this one works)

Just wanted to post an apology for the copyright symbol I have on my entry for this. I accidently put this in when scanning this for the project. I get used to doing this for most of my art for the web and I wasn't thinking this time. So sorry for this :(

PS: Lulu, I would be happy to send you the original drawing I did of your farm. Just PM me and let me know :)

Lulu

Wow this is lovely....what a great effect...must try this she says adding it to her ever growing list of must do's.
Boy, there just aren't enough hours in the day

LOL...actually it didn't take very long to actually do after I decided what I was going to do...It was a LOT of fun to see what was happening. One tip though, once you lay down the water, make sure to let it sit! Don't go back in and fuss with it til you let it dry and then see the results. You'll be amazed at the effects you get!!

:) :) :)
