WELCOME TO THE JULY 2019 DIFFERENT STROKES CHALLENGE
The challenge this month is :
A FOCUS ON DESIGN
and the theme
LOOKING OUT OF YOUR WINDOW
Any window of your house, tent, caravan, unit, which has garden, junk, wood heap, buildings, clothes lines, birds, people etc.
Please include your window frame, and if you have a sill, with small objects, feel free to include if it works better with the design.
The motto is :
NEVER LET THE TRUTH GET IN THE WAY OF A GOOD STORY...
So Delete items you don't like, paint what you Like that pleases you to see and add items that you'd like to be there if you need to enhance the design to fit with negative shapes.
ALSO - pay particular attention to negative shapes
as you prep your design.
[You can google ideas and tutorials - pictures of looking out of a window painted in acrylics] I wont link, because there is so much material to get ideas from. please don't copy anything - this is just ideas. ]
All entries must be new paintings specifically for this challenge and in acrylics - any type of acrylic.
Join in the discussion about the project - it's friendly and fun to learn how others are coping/struggling/thriving!!! But no visual images!
Help can be gained from asking but also from looking for resource materials elsewhere - the RIL e.g.
A 'reveal' date for all is 21st of the month - that gives us 3 weeks to make the work, plus an extra week for latecomers.
Interpret the ideas any way you wish - be inventive, realistic, influenced by another style or '...ism' - it's up to you!
PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD WORK TO THE THREAD BEFORE THE 21ST OF THE MONTH.** Much more exciting and fun to see what 'masterpieces' appear!
If work is uploaded early it will be moved to a safe place until 21st.
At the end of the month the thread /discussion will be closed and a new challenge will begin.
**Please note, the single 'reveal' date is chosen so that we do not influence each other with our individual interpretations ......
that's the whole point of it being called 'Different Strokes'!
By all means ask questions in the thread or initiate discussion about the challenge - just don't post images!!!
You may crop, combine, zoom in and select a portion, use any part for pattern work ....... just let the imagination roam!
by all means comment on paintings posted from 21st, but please only offer crits if requested. Thank you. ... Charlie's Mum
Most of all, have fun
