Lightbulb WDE Jan. 7 **IMAGES HERE**

Welcome to my hosting of the Weekend Drawing Event - but it's also painting, printing, sewing, collage, pastel, digital - whatever medium you choose ...... and it's also over the whole week!!!

I will be posting 16 images and a challenge.

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.
Of course, if you prefer to leave your thread until the work is complete, that's OK too - just be sure to include the 2hr. image also.

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, and as time permits, please view others’ entries and comment and encourage when you can. Unless requested, please refrain from critiquing.


Any further information you may need about guidelines can be found here.

Now, if you're all comfortably seated in the little truck, off we go.

Another view of the old jalopy!
Bourton-on-the-Water is a very pretty and popular attraction in the Cotswolds - a hilly area in Southern England ~



Larger version.

The little Cotswold town we stayed in was Broadway, with the loveliest delicatessen!~



Larger version.

... and very pretty Hotels and Inns ~


Larger version.

There's another town fairly near called Evesham, steeped in history (England's history is often very bloody and bloodthirsty!)
You'll recognise this style of building! Now here's a challenge for those who like drawing!!!


Larger version.

The River Avon runs through the town (Shakespeare's River at Stratford!).
Meet some of its residents!


Larger version.

We also met some of the human variety - fellow 'sailors'!


Larger version.

Earlier in the year we visited Rutland, the smallest county in England, another very pretty area with a large reservoir called Rutland Water.

We also had some fellow sailors there!


Larger version.

My very favourite day was spent at Barnsdale, home and television garden of one of Britain's best loved TV gardeners, Geoff Hamilton. Sadly, he died a few years ago but the gardens are very much 'alive' and I love how weeds are allowed their space as much as the cultivated plants. It's huge, but here's one pic from that day. The greenhouse in one of the plots.


Larger version.

The pond in another of the plots (the whole area is divided into smaller plots of gardens of a more normal size!) gave some lovely reflections and light ~


Larger version.

On a walk around the village in which we stayed, we met some local characters ~


Larger version.

Having visited the southern and midland areas, we're coming north again to God's country - as Yorkshiremen describe it!

A little town we like to visit, Pately Bridge. This is King's Yard - a little courtyard now made into gift shops and such.


Larger version.

The park where we have our holiday home is lovely - here's the fountain on the green we see daily when there!


Larger version.

Re: WDE Jan. 7 **IMAGES HERE**

Now we're coming further north - home, in fact!

For the floral painters, some of my home grown plants - lilies and petunias ~


Larger version.

A hanging basket ~


Larger version.

Still on the patio - some reflections!!! Laundry drying


Larger version.

For the Still Life lovers, we move inside - and Felicity wanted to be included, so here she is!


Larger version.


All the larger versions are high resolution images and allow you to zoom in on a less complicated area if desired!
Remember, you may crop , change the format, distort, select from any image as you wish. Your choice!

**YOUR CHALLENGE**
Use a medium well outside your comfort zone e.g. - printing (potato? Lino? leaves? from glass surface?), collage (paper? fabric? 'found' items?), quilting? - or wet instead of dry medium?

Above all, have fun!

Oh Maureen, I fell in love with the pond photo and the still life. Unfortunately, I can't play this weekend. I may snag those for later. Thanks for hosting!
