February Landscape Challenge

Last month's challenge



Below are the three images for this month's project.

Any and/or all mediums are permissible. Paint one whole image or three. You can crop or enlarge You can add or subtract whatever you like. Just paint away to your heart's content and let's see what you've done....or are doing by way of WIP's. If you have any problems let us know and this thread will endeavour to find some expert who may be able to offer suggestions....unfortunately, I am NOT one of them. Having said that -feel free to ask for C&C enabling participants also the opportunity to offer suggestions or give links to those who can. Enjoy your painting experience

Sorry Novenus...second mistake (Ithought 28th was last day ) . I mistakenly posted this on Oil Painting thread instead of 'Landscapes'....but the flowers are on Old Masters thread....not here. Kathy

Re: February Landscape Challenge

Thanks Sid. for your understanding. I was really worrying about it. And yes, as soon as I saw this image I picked it for that very reason....a real pastellists project....although with our creative lot....you never can tell!

Re: February Landscape Challenge

Good for you Kenny! We'll have to keep it floating towards the top now and then. Perhaps we could have a coffee break and converse and commiserate with one another...what do you think?

That's fine Kenny....no need to do anything really. I'll look in from time to time and do a song and dance or something.

Re: February Landscape Challenge

The DatGlo-esque colors in the middle photo are kind of weird looking.

Re: February Landscape Challenge

as this is in the oil painting forum, does that mean we have to use oil paints????

Re: February Landscape Challenge

Yes, this looks like a great challenge, but for the oil forum any participants need to be in oil.

No No No No! In my statement after I posted the photos I apologised for posting them on the Oil Painting thread. Just go up a few posts from yours Firehorse....you will see my mistake. I have PM'd two mods. to try to get it transferred to the 'Landscapes forum' and have had no responses as yet.

If any of you can get in touch with someone in authority please do so.
Also, if you go back to the January Landscape Challenge you will find another explanation there.

So very sorry. Kathy
