Re: Different Strokes Challenge - July 2019

Well, I might have started one...I'll see if the watercolor-and-saran-wrap trick works with watered down acrylic and plastic bag.

It sounds very interesting Maryinasia, I have no idea, but it sounds like you are being creative and having fun.. Mysterious at the very least. Well done for trying something different.

I have loved the effects this gives in watercolor. Never tried with acrylics, will give it a go.

It even works with slightly thicker acrylics, as long as it's still wet when you add the clingfilm ...... and it works brilliantly with acrylic inks!

Re: Different Strokes Challenge - July 2019

How about the obscure-glassed window in the bathroom?

Re: Different Strokes Challenge - July 2019

I feel like I would be cheating looking out the window where I am currently at.....room with a view....on the coast, vast ocean, breaking waves, blue sky, clouds, trees and flowers. So I will wait until I get home for a different window.

Re: Different Strokes Challenge - July 2019

Carl, oh go on, you make the view sound stunning... pls show - like I said ..never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

Maureen, my loo window , I pulled it apart years ago and made a lead light of a magpie scene. I don't mind showing you a pic, but its daytime, and the best effect is at night time.

I'm considering that! I painted the huge front window and realized I should have painted the outside and then painted the window in. There are so many panes of glass I would never be able to do a decent rendering of the outside. It is a beautiful scene for a city but I seldom have the curtains open.


But I want to remain creative.....

Hi All, I am happy to oblige. Taken this shot tonight from outside looking at the wall.
The house is old with the old fashioned sash windows.
I knocked out both, did the 'cartoon' and spent some time... mostly Sat nights in the shed putting this together. ( Not in that order, cartoon first, then make, then replace ) I am talking about more than 20 yrs ago. I chose the magpie to represent the 4 that have lived in the front garden for years.
Yes, I know lead light is not fashionable anymore... but it fits this house.

This is not my topic nor scene for the challenge.




cheers
Merri
