Arrow Project; Cats & Dogs Alphabet Scavenger Hunt

A new Project is announced for our Animal & Wildlife Forum


Title: "Cats & Dogs Alphabet Scavenger Hunt"

Project Leader; ArtbyPeggy - (Animal & Wildlife Guide)

Relative Difficulty: Irrelevant

Medium: Any painting/drawing medium or combination of mediums

Subject: Cats and Dogs; both cat and dog painting subjects, will run at the same time, in this Project.

Maximum participants allowed: Unlimited

Description:
The Alphabet Cats and/or Dogs Scavenger Hunt will work like this;
Paint/draw/sketch cats and dogs breeds beginning with the letter of the alphabet. You may paint either cat or dogs breeds or both animals - whichever you prefer.

Cat Breeds; (examples)
Abyssinian
Burmese
Calico
Domestic long hair- etc,
(big cats may also be included e.g.)
Tigers, lions,etc, etc,
Here's the link to "Cats"in the RIL
http://www.wetcanvas.com/RefLib/showgallery.php?cat=18

Dog Breeds; (examples)
Afghan Hound
Boxers
Collies
Dalmations etc, etc,
Here's the link to the "Dogs" in the RIL
http://www.wetcanvas.com/RefLib/showgallery.php?cat=19

And of course we also have our own reference library; http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=462

Each breed of cat or dog must begin with the correct letter of the alphabet, so don't skip a letter and post a painting that begins with the wrong letter of the alphabet. For example; when the previous cat painting posted has begun with the letter "B", don't follow with a painting of a cat-breed beginning with the letter"G". Follow the "B"painting with a "C" painting. When a painting has been posted with any letter you can either post a painting with that same letter also, or move on to the next letter in the Alphabet.
Members may also use the name of their cat/dog if it begins with the correct alphabet letter.

I hope I have explained this as clearly as possible and you enjoy this Project in our Sub-Forum "Animal & WildlifeProjects Discussions", so lets get into it and have fun! Looking forward to seeing your work !!!

Re: New Project; Cats & Dogs Alphabet Scavenger Hunt

this is Blinky from the library but I named it "Take ME" for the title as there was a commercial on helping homeless cats and he/she fit right in ... hope I am doing this right. If not please delete. Thanks

Laurie

Re: New Project; Cats & Dogs Alphabet Scavenger Hunt

Hi All,

I usually hang out in the All Media Events forum but saw your invite so I thought I'd join in because I love cats. The A and B cats are gorgeous.

This is my dad's Calico cat. Her name is Katie. She is all fluff. This is mixed media - watercolor on gessoed paper and pencil.


Kathy

Re: New Project; Cats & Dogs Alphabet Scavenger Hunt

Laurie - yes you certainly are doing this right and a very beautiful painting of "Blinkie" wonderful eyes!
Is Blinkie in pastel and what size, Laurie?

Kathy - Gorgeous Calico cat for "C" lovely loose style - beautiful!


Ok, everyone we are away with a rush!
That's great, you can either now begin with another with a "C" or follow with a "D"
And don't forget you can begin the DOGS topic as well which of course will begin with an "A"

I am new to the animal/wildlife forum.
Laurie, Kathy, & Vivien - outstanding work so far. Laurie you even did 2! My posting is not quite as finished as those so far... a quick sketch. While I see we are on to "D"... I'm posting for "B".
This is a quick sketch of my beagle Wylan.
