January 2018 Plant Parade

Happy New Year!

I'm Tam-tam, your host for January. And the theme this month is
LIGHT THE WAY INTO 2018

That means any flower showing wonderful back lighting or side lighting. Attempt to get a gorgeous glow and notice the interesting shadows that are created. I've chosen many examples from the RIL, but you can also use your own.
You may use any art painting/drawing medium BUT please remember DO NOT POST your PLANT PARADE ENTRY UNTIL REVEAL DAY WHICH IS 25th of JANUARY but you can chat about the topic at anytime before then....and please let us know how your entry is going.

Thank you so much for Hosting this first 2018 Plant Parade Challenge Tam-tam! This is a wonderful beginning to our 2018 year!


THIS YEAR - Your Floral & Botanical Team - of Vivien, Maureen and Dewi, are going to add an extra Challenge to the Host's Challenge.

It will be different every month so as well as painting any of the ref photos or your own in Tam-tam's theme, in any medium you would like too: this month the added Challenge for those who would like to try it, is; to paint/draw the Sunflower in Pen & Ink
You are welcome to add a watercolor wash to your Pen & Ink Sunflower painting. You can also use colored ink or just black Pen & Ink, whatever you prefer to use. The idea of these extra Challenges is to:
maybe try a new technique you have never tried before and to experiment and have fun!


Have fun everyone and if you have time, do have a try at the extra Challenge as well as the other beautiful photos. Looking forward to seeing your paintings/drawings on January 25th 2018

Re: January 2018 Plant Parade

January is going to be soooo busy! I need so much practice painting light and light effects so for me this is an excellent challenge. Even more daunting is the pen and ink drawing (visions of blots and having to pretend they are part of the picture!).
Thank you for these great projects.
Happy New Year!!

Re: January 2018 Plant Parade

Yes its good to have this January Plant Parade posted early so we have plenty of time to decide what to paint.
My New Year's Resolution for 2018 - "get on to painting my Plant Parade entry earlier so Im not running at the last minute as usual!" (famous last words'")
