Welcome to the 2nd WDE of 2018!
I will be posting 10 images and a challenge. I do not have a theme, except I took all these photos in SW Florida so maybe that’s a theme?
Please wait until all are uploaded before commenting - thank you.
You have 30 minutes
to make your choice and choose your materials - you may use any medium.
For the next two hours
, just go for it……then STOP! Scan or photograph your work and post it in your own new thread. Your title should begin with WDE, plus date, plus title. If you plan to add more images later you can put MI in the title so we know to look back at your thread. Or you can use WIP for Work in Progress.
Challenge: NO LIFTING ALLOWED
is to draw or paint the image without lifting your pencil (brush). It doesn’t matter if lines are retraced.
Note: When you introduce your work, please add a description of size, medium, support (paper, canvas, etc.) and time taken.
If your work is digital, we'd appreciate a description of whether it's freehand drawing/painting, manipulated image or done using the filters available in some programs - you could also say which program you've used.
All are acceptable but we'd like to know the "hows, whys and wherefores"!!
Use WIP for any work in progress at the 2 hour mark, and MI for multiple images if other works are to be added before the following Monday.
NB. To avoid forum flooding, please put all of your work during the weekend, for the current WDE, into a single thread: multiple threads will be merged!
From the following TUESDAY, you may open a new thread for later work.
You have the whole week to participate - until the next WDE starts (usually Friday). If you finish a piece after that time, please post in its own thread and try to give the date/host of that particular week - if you can!
After posting your contribution, please view others’ entries and comment and encourage when you can. Unless requested, please refrain from critiquing.

And as promised for Robert Sloan, a kitty. Though maybe not what you expected. This is at the residence of artist Leoma Lovegrove.
