Different Strokes: August

Welcome to the August edition of Different Strokes.

Just a note before we begin
If any member would like to host a Different Strokes project, please let one of the Team know which month you'd like to take and we'll arrange it.



Please read the guidelines below carefully.

GUIDELINES:
On the first of each month a reference photo will be posted in a thread entitled "Different Strokes"

Each member interested in taking the challenge will create a painting using the chosen reference and on the 20th of each month participants will upload their interpretation of the reference for discussion within the thread, finished or not. PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD WORK TO THE THREAD BEFORE THE 20TH OF THE MONTH.**

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

Artwork can be any size on any surface but MUST be acrylic. Monthly references will be selected by the guides and moderators (but please note the additional comment above)

**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'!

This month's reference is -
Ringling Museum of Art Terrace by C_Line.

I hope you can participate Gayle, but more importantly hope your husband's surgery goes well and his recovery is speedy.

Re: Different Strokes: August

I am new to Wetcanvas and acrylics but I do live a few miles from the Ringling Museum for 6 months a year and love it there. This will be a great challenge for me!
