Re: DIFFERENT STROKES January 2008

Diverse?
Yep!
But in every one, it is obvious that they were all done using the same reference picture.
One little thing or another connects every one to another.
And.....I think they are just spectacular!
What Fun!
We had the hostess with the mostess this month!

Re: DIFFERENT STROKES January 2008

Barry - welcome to the forum - and I'm so pleased you managed to join in this project, it's a good way to become part of the forum quickly L)

This has a lovely liquid look to it - I like the transparent use of the medium in the water, and also in the buildings -it seems to convey the feeling that was in JJ's photo.
I'll add this to the Galleries as soon as I have time .... hope you'll join us in Feb too - tomorrow

Re: DIFFERENT STROKES January 2008

Wooooo.... amazing work! I wish I'd been able to get in on this, but busy is busy... one of these days...

Beautiful job, all of you. I'd love to have any of them hanging in my house.

Re: DIFFERENT STROKES January 2008

Can anyone tell me why my copy came out funny. I couldn't figure out how to edit it so I could move it. I couldn't find an HTML button. Where did I go wrong? Thanks

Re: DIFFERENT STROKES January 2008

Barry, If you hit the 'enter' key a couple of times after uploading the image, it should solve your problem.
To edit what you have already posted here, go into edit mode and then place your cursor immediately before the start of your text......hit the 'enter' key.
