I will be posting 16 images.

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 programmes - you could also say which programme 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 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, we now run a 'Catch-up' thread in the forum each month where you can post any WDE not completed in its allotted week .... it's a sticky near the top of the forum page.

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

Please wait while I have uploaded all 16 before posting.

Some of these images have larger versions in the RIL but I don't have the links to hand so in order to speed the uploading I'll see if I can find them afterwards.......

First some critters:

A cute and cuddly Llama at a Welsh farm from my holiday pics.

We had so much rain on our holiday we ended up at a garden centre for something to do and took photos of many beautiful flowers.

Berries on a tree in my garden. I've been told it is a rowan. I think of them as a running buffet for the local birds

Thanks for posting early Lin - I don't have to stay up!!!!!! :lol:

The url link to RIL was wrong for the last image - SL at Bosworth, so I've removed it - if you find the right one, I'll add it.

BTW - you say 'only for this WDE' for your Goth friend - but if it's in the RIL, anyone may use it at any time ;)

GREAT imagen, Ma'm! i surely hope to participate for the first time in ages! I swore to myself I would carve out a niche of time last weekend and because of extenuating circumstance, was unable. I'm standing my ground THIS time and having some me time to play and paint! Thanks for the opportunity with your lovely photos, Chickie! Have an awesome day!

What a great idea. I hdidnt' know about this and I just posted them as I had them saved. It will be interestign to see all the different versions.

Kordelia - great to see you back:wave: i won't go into details of my fall lol rather not :)

Maureeen - yes dont' worry about it he doesn't mind, he' probably be pleased. i've had a few brain farts this week lol

thanks for all the well wishes - I have good days and bad days- it's been really cold and the weather affects my condition. I'll feel better when the sunshine comes :)

i'm so glad you like my pics. i'm kicking myself that everything was a day late. I like to give people lots of time, there is nothing worse than being raring to go and having to wait. Apologies to those 12 hours ahead especially.

Wonderful images, Lin! You included handsome Dave! You know I think he is so cool. Give that great British thinker a long scritch from me, will you?
