GRRRRREAT Retha!

P.S. all you others out there, we're hoping you'll just in too, it's early in the month and there's plenty of time. You won't be sorry! Lots of different elements of design in this photo to practice on.

Gorgeous photo and I love those colours so I'm in. I've just started on mine. Will have to see how far I get.

Re: Different Strokes: August

I think I'm in...I'm new here...I saw that you have to use acrylics, but can this be painted any style?

Re: Different Strokes: August

Yes, I think so. As long as it's in acrylics. Here's what we did last month. (our reference photo and the interpretations.)

Re: Different Strokes: August

Indeed - that's the idea of "Different Strokes"...you can use any style you want, including abstract. You can crop the photo, etc. Just so long as it's acrylic. Glad to have so many participants. And I certainly hope everyone enjoys the project.

Re: Different Strokes: August

I am really excitied, I might just get this one done by the 20th instead of having it only half finished.
I want to do a cropped version, but was wondering if this is okay to focus on something a bit different??????
Hugs
Stacey

You can focus on whatever you want Stacey! That's the whole idea.

Re: Different Strokes: August

Wonderful. I've done several of the Different Strokes projects and I have to say they've always been a highlight to me of this site.

I'll see if I can at least get a little of it laid down...

Re: Different Strokes: August

Remember, if any part of this seem too complex or challenging, you can always crop and simplify the image.
