Smile October 2017, Monthly Challenge 🎨 and Chat.

Come join us! Everyone Welcome!

Hello Artists and welcome to the October Monthly Challenge! The Challenge is an activity thread for artists of all experience levels working from photos chosen by a monthly host. Come join us! Using the following photos create a piece of art and then share it with us in this thread or simply come in and have a chat, comment on the artworks, show us what you're up to or share your own snapshots.

I have taken all this pictures, full resolution is available at the reference image library. Feel free to use or crop, adjust, rearrange, draw, paint, in any way you see fit. I tried to pick an assortment of different things so everyone is inspired!.

The guidelines for the Challenge are simple.

All works must be within the size guidelines of the Miniature forum.

You can use any medium with the exception of photography. Digital art is welcome.

All schools of painting from abstract to realism are welcome.
You may crop, edit, combine or alter the images in any way you'd like.
Please tell us the medium, size and support when you share your images.

Artists of all levels of expertise are encouraged and welcome.

Thank you to all the members who contribute to the Reference Image Library (RIL).

Be creative and enjoy!

If you would like to be a host next month, please PM Virginia vmrs.

All are enticing! Thanks for hosting. The witches are calling their sister's name (me).

Re: October 2017, Monthly Challenge �� and Chat.

They were too fun to pass up So here they are 5.5x8 sketched with Micron 05 pen on Strathmore Visual Journal for mixed media, then watercolor added.


Title will be Broomsticks and Lipsticks
