Re: Different Strokes - June 2011

This is a lovely still life. I'm hoping that I can do it justice. Count me in!

Re: Different Strokes - June 2011

Hi all my friends in the wonderful world of difference! Been away a LONG time, but hopefully I can get to this BEFORE the due date!
Anyway, I am most definetly in, just not sure what I will do with it????? THINKING!!!!!! - Hey maybe a Macro shot??? Nah! Do that all the time, maybe an abstract-ish version????
STILL THINKING!!!

Gentle Hugs, Stacey

Just keep reminding yourself of the truth in your signature, "It's always wrong before it's right..."
I have started and I actually like the way my vase is coming along, but I am not happy with the table and I haven't even started the flowers. I guess this is why it is called a "challenge" ...

Re: Different Strokes - June 2011

Just wanted to remind everybody that we are all free to use our artistic license, and even encouraged to do so. You can crop or change anything you want to change about the original reference photo. If the flowers are intimidating, you could maybe just do the vase, or maybe just one flower peeking out of the vase...you can change the colors, the background, anything you want to do! Just use your imagination and have fun!

Re: Different Strokes - June 2011

I would love to try this one. Have been wanting to do a still life but am still very rusty. I am recently retired and haven't really painted in earnest since high school some 40+ years ago. It might not make it back to the posting, but I sure am going to give it a go. Love this picture. And I love this web site -- newly joined and am spending way too much time on the PC looking at all your work. Really gifted people on this site. Kathy

O wow! What a great ref photo! I'm definately going to give this a go! Have never posted before but this photo simply begs me to give it a try!
KATHY: It's so nice to hear you are returning to the creative muse of your youth!! I'm sure it's been waiting for you to do so, many happy strokes to you!
Bye for now,
Charri

Re: Different Strokes - June 2011

I'll give it a go..if I can get it done before vacation. I probably won't be able to upload it until July 1st. Will that be okay?

Re: Different Strokes - June 2011

Hi all,
I too have been away from here for a long time, so going to have a go at this.
Lovely reference by the way.
