March 2018 Different Strokes Challenge

WELCOME TO THE MARCH 2018 DIFFERENT STROKES CHALLENGE

Great job by everyone in the February challenge. And a big collective thank you to Margaretta for hosting and giving us a really fun challenge!!!!!


If you would like to host a Different Strokes, please see http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/show....php?t=130251

Please read the guidelines below carefully.

GUIDELINES:

All entries must be for this challenge and in acrylics - any type of acrylic.

Join in the discussion about the project - it's friendly and fun to learn how others are coping/struggling/thriving!!! But no visual images!

Help can be gained from asking but also from looking for resource materials elsewhere - the RIL e.g. A 'reveal' date for all is 21st of the month - that gives us 3 weeks to make the work, plus an extra week for latecomers. Interpret the ideas any way you wish - be inventive, realistic, influenced by another style or '...ism' - it's up to you!

PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD WORKS TO THE THREAD BEFORE THE 21ST OF THE MONTH. Much more exciting and fun to see what 'masterpieces' appear! If work is uploaded early it will be moved to a safe place until 21st.

At the end of the month the thread /discussion will be closed and a new challenge will begin.

**Please note, the single 'reveal' date is chosen so that we do not influence each other with our individual interpretations ......that's the whole point of it being called 'Different Strokes'!

By all means ask questions in the thread or initiate discussion about the challenge - just don't post images!!!

***********************************************

March 2018 Challenge.....

Your Favorite Quote


The challenge this month is to capture what your favorite quote means to you in a painting.

For example, imagine what you could/would paint if this was your favorite quote:

"Keep your face to the sunshine and you can never see the shadow."
- Helen Keller


Do more than one if you want!!!! Please include the quote with your challenge entry or in the painting itself.
New Rule - Para 4(a) c.1 (add) - Your quote must be attributed to a specific person (named) that said the quote as inspiration for your painting submittal.

Have fun, create, and enjoy your painting challenge!

Cheers!!

PS - Subscribe to the thread to keep up with the flow!

Oh yes! What a relief! Thank Goodness it's not Thermodynamics!!
Thank you Mayfly! I remember very few quotes but there is one in particular.... How to represent that will certainly be a challenge!

Re: March 2018 Different Strokes Challenge

Hey I just found a great quote by one of the legendary thermodynamicists ever!
"It is now necessary for the general public to embrace and support the critical issues of thermalisation of quantum systems."
I'll be working this into a major work of art especially for WC Challenge Mar 2018.
Wish me luck!

An afterthought. We just gotta make these challenges MORE DIFFICULT!

Re: March 2018 Different Strokes Challenge

" I'M NOT BAD....I'M JUST DRAWN THAT WAY!" - JESSICA RABBIT. I will work up a realistic Jessica Rabbit posing next to the cartoon one so I'll have TWO images, one cartoon and one realistic in the same piece. She will probably be holding the cartoon drawing or posing next to a framed cartoon drawing by a bedside....something like that. Yep....that's what I'm gonna do.

Re: March 2018 Different Strokes Challenge

My brain is "taxed" out! I have been doing taxes (income). I would rather be painting, so maybe I can give this some thought!
