Re: Different Strokes: June '08

WoW! The gallery turned out amazing Anghwar! Thank you SO much! As I looked through the entries all together, I see the one point perspective was used in almost every one, and done well! It was harder than I thought it would be, and so was the painting, lol! Still fun though!

I'm so glad you posted again your painting and the manipulated reference photo, Anghwar! Man that's good! I actually like the left side being darker - it adds to the atmosphere of the piece! Outstanding details on the train area itself. Awesome! I also enjoyed and appreciated the discussion on the method you used for enhancing the reference! Great info!

Kathy - you've got a great start going here! I'll look forward to the final after you return from your road trip!

I'm really looking forward to seeing what Tony has cooked up for us for July's challenge!

Elizabeth

Re: Different Strokes: June '08

..just checkin in to see if the July diff strokes was here, think I may be hooked on this project. Two new pics, Anghwar, very crisp, has the feel of a print about it, nice work. And Kathy, don't be downhearted it's full of strong vibes, great colours, it would make a good springboard into an abstract interpretaion I think, I really like it. Have a fun weekend all, bye for now, shelley

Re: Different Strokes: June '08

Hi everybody,

Thank you all for the nice comments on my painting, especially Cindy who called me a teacher never thought anyone could learn from me. Most of the time I feel I still paint with 2 left hands (I am righthanded)

Elizabeth thank you so much for hosting this has been the most fun I have had doing a different strokes up to now. When we came back it was a little hard to pick up where we left off. Kinda shyly finding my feet again around the site

Just to put the record straight the method of painting I described with the under/overexposure did not apply to this painting. It came about as a result of Angela mentioning the HDR photography.

Re: Different Strokes: June '08

Wow, I am so impressed this month! So much creativity!

Forgive me for not making individual comments this time, but I've barely been home all week and now I have so much catching up to do... here, house, and yard, lol.

Here's my little ATC version. I kept it very simple.

Re: Different Strokes: June '08

What excellent work from everyone!
Hope it's not too late to submit. I cropped and printed the photo a couple of weeks ago but didn't get around to any painting it. I had a canvas with brown paint on it already so I taped it off and put the painting in the middle.
I just can't seem to get faces in profile to look good
Anyway, it's 4"x6" on canvas board. Limited palette of burnt sienna, burnt umber, tit. white and a dab of cad yellow medium. Oh, and some blue green mix left over from another project I threw in to give it a shot of color.

Thanks for looking.

Cherm, never too late to post, I am sorry you missed the gallery. Very clever to use the brown border, I love the light on the pillars and your colors work well together.

It's ok Anghwar, I was really late this time. At least I wasn't the only one. Nice work Cherm.

Re: Different Strokes: June '08

Not too late for this one Cherm! We continued June for a week due to the site problems. I'm so glad you were able to squeeze this in. Terrific brickwork on the post and the figure is wonderful! You did good!!!!

Re: Different Strokes: June '08

Hi all .
It's taken me ages to catch up on things since returning from holiday, so here goes with these ...... I seem to have missed a lot of 'fun' this past week and hopefully the current glitches will soon be cleared.

Steve: I like this - the colour is good, the lighting is very good and it does look like an underground station! (Whereas mine is like a 'trip' to Strawberry Fields!!! .... thank you, I liked your comment )

Jenny: Elvis lives! How romantic that he keeps his trysts in a deserted station!

Angela: - that's great! Practicing for the Olympics- super idea!

Serra: What great movement - it's like a train rushing through! super!

Sandra: I like the way you gave it arches instead of all the pillars! Love that motion one, it really has has that feeling of 'Whoosh' when a train goes through.

Vicki: I like those colours - no people? Ahhh - they just left on the last train!

EP: so glad Thelma made it to realise her 'dream' ..... she's the best-travelled turkey in Turkeydom.
Like the painting too - nice lighting and sense of depth.

Susan: I like the strength of this painting - love those black lines... colours lovely.

Cyndi: Love this colourful painting - the blocking works well and you have good coverage for this type of work. Very nice!

Assaf: What a super painting; I really like this interpretation and the thoughtful use of colour. It works very well indeed and isn't the least bit boring! That composite is interesting too - clever lad!

Elizabeth: Your sense of desolation works well - I'd hate to be the lone female on a platform like this at any time, never mind night-time!
Good texture and lovely colour.

Janet: Good work! I like the feeling of atmosphere taking away the sharpness of the structures.

Shelley: What a super painting - I love the composition! It reminds me so much of the helpless feeling you can get in strange stations when trying to find other platforms/exits etc. I find this work very interesting - glad you joined us! ....... and yes, a nod to Escher

Lillian: that's beautiful! It looks so much more friendly than the original!

Anghwar: I see you managed to get the upload in the larger size! Well done!
Love the colours here - and the textures.

Kathy: Good start - just finish when you can! Enjoy the trip

Michelle: Another deserted one! Lovely detail and so well drawn in such a tiny space. Nice work!

Cherm: Interesting tight crop there - glad you managed to join in!

Angwhar - thanks so much for doing the Galleries for Elizabeth and us - and now I'll try to find time to follow up on HDR photog. and the link Angela gave .. I've Bookmarked it!

Once again I'm very impressed with the standard of work and the Oh!-so-different interpretations .... thanks to everyone for joining in our forum Project again.

I'll copy this thread to the Information Kiosk, so if you need to find it any time, check there!

Many thanks for commenting on my psychedelic rendering ..... I think I've come down from the trip
