Hi Dewi, just popped in for a look and saw you wanted more to join in - if I can get to my acrylics I just might have a go. Love the ref pics.

Great reference photos! The colors are awesome. If I can get caught up on my printmaking class, I'd love to join in.

Re: Different Strokes : March 2012 Challenge

nice! looks like the first photo is good- the second one isnt such a good composition and the third one has too much distortion. i will try the first one- im looking forward to see how others approach this. cant wait to see results. i like the bloue against the orange- perfick!

Re: Different Strokes : March 2012 Challenge

You're welcome Jay - wouldn't want to lose you this month!

Kate, as the challenge is to make a 'different' interpretation, the paintings could be a looooong way from the original reference! - so any distortion etc doesn't really matter - could even do a combination of all three!
Glad you want to paint with us - hope you enjoy it

Thumbs up Re: Different Strokes : March 2012 Challenge

I LOVE this idea! I hope I can get something painted before the 20th. If not this month, I'll be back but the oranges are scrumptious. Thanks so much for hosting this!!
