Arrow September Watermedia Challenge

Hullo everyone
I'm your Watermedia Challenge Host for September and as I have my Challenge pics ready.
You can crop the photos in anyway you choose and you can use any combination of Watermedia to paint an entry with.

The photos are all my own and there's no theme this month - just a selection from my own photo files. You can paint as many entries as you want to from them - just remember to post your entries here in this thread.

First, Hydrangeas from my garden


Mountains surrounding Arrowtown New Zealand


Blue pansies in my garden


The beginning of the Haast Highway on the Wild West Coast of New Zealand


Some derelict buildings in an abandoned town in NZ


Gemstone Beach New Zealand - where if the tide's right you can pick up gemstones lying on the beach


2 photos of my dog Pippa looking angelic and cute!


Actually in this one, Pippa was contemplating what new mischief she could get up too! I've never owned such a naughty/mischievous dog in my life - but I love her to bits regardless! Such a look on her face! Maybe she didn't want to sit beside a flower-pot?


A rose called "Pristine" from my garden


A red chair I saw on a garden visit - I thought this would make a lovely painting


My Miniature Horse "Star Dreamer"


"Boots" my grandaughters cat


(The photo of Boots, I've also posted in the Animal & Wildlife September Challenge and I'm quite happy for members to xpost their painting of Boots to the A & W Challenge too, as I'm Hosting it in September as well.)
The link to the September A & W Challenge is here; http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/show....php?t=1433444

Have fun with this and remember Watermedia doesn't have a Reveal Date, so you can post your paintings here as soon as you've completed them.
Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

All are so enticing! Your hydrangeas are perfect! I only had one bloom on mine this year (too hot). Pippa and puss are here too for a fun month. Thanks so much for hosting!

Thanks Kay - when I began to look through my photo files, it was fun trying to sort out a selection that would be interesting enough. Of course Pippa had to feature!

Re: September Watermedia Challenge

These two are both of Pippa eying those roses. The first was seriously trying to capture a likeness, done in water soluble pencil and some carbon, and the second is Chibi Pippa done in gouache and ink. I hope it is acceptable to change the photograph slightly, I could not resist. Both are very small drawings, A6. Still finding liquid graphite tricky. Not too sure about the eyes of the first drawing...something is a bit off...

Re: September Watermedia Challenge

Isobel thanks for painting Pippa, she is cute and the second one has caught her personality perfectly! Because she is a wildly excitable dog! And I love the flower in her mouth, Im sure shes saying "here's a flower for you Mum and you better take it quick before I chew it up"!......so Pippa!
