WELCOME TO THE MARCH DIFFERENT STROKES CHALLENGE
Great job by everyone in the February challenge. And a big thank you to Fedetony for hosting!!!!!
If you would like to host a Different Strokes, please see
Please read the guidelines below carefully.
All entries must be 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 - it's up to you!
PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD WORKS 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!!!
Tonalism, Spring & the Big Brush
The challenge this month is "Spring in a Tonalism style using one big brush". Since Spring starts on the 20th, we had to have something around spring.
The Tonalism art movement is not easy to define. In a very simplistic way, Tonalism is defined, for me, as creating emotions and mood based on the color tones. You would think Spring and this style would not go together, maybe it can. Here is some more info on the style:
Now for added fun, the challenge will also involve the use of only one big brush. Find and use one of the biggest brushes you have for this challenge. Test your skills using that one big brush for the whole work or works.
We have lots of experts here who can also help us understand Tonalism. Time to ask those questions. I know I will.
So a Tonalism style work with a focus on spring using 1 (only one) big brush. Tell us what size brush you used too. Hope I have not created something impossible for this month
Have fun, create, and enjoy your painting challenge! Cheers!!
