Lightbulb WDE Jan 12 --- IMAGES HERE!

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.

Have fun!

One of my Gouldian finches:


Next ones are at a local organic produce farm:






Sunset at a local park


Chihuly display in Sarasota:


Plant life on Cayo Costa island, you can only get there by boat:


Two more birds


My American Cocker Spaniel, Cricket (I removed the background from another version of this one, can share that with you if you like)


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

Re: WDE Jan 12 --- IMAGES HERE!

Of course I should venture of out my comfort zone....

I think I will try the dog
And I'll jump out of my comfort zone again and go for watercolor pencils this time, no time for another oil painting.

Excited!

You are brave! I haven't painted the dog yet, although I sketch her often.

Lovely photos! Unfortunately I have a sudden infection in my right shoulder and I'm unable to paint.

Some cool stuff, especially an artist's trailer and her name is cool, too. Looks like one of my tuxedo kitties.

Re: WDE Jan 12 --- IMAGES HERE!

Oh wow. Thank you for including the cat! She's beautiful, her portrait's on the trailer and she's down under it looking off to the side with her rear end in an odd pose, almost doglike. Can't see her tail, she might even be a bobtail for all that I can tell. The van is so spectacular.

I don't usually do cars, trailers, people, made things much unless it's an old castle or something, but this... your friend is awesome and I love her work.

Cricket's cute, actually a classic cute dog, could be a greeting card. But that trailer... wow!

And I love your finch. He's obviously got the same style guide as a rainbow lorikeet. Just, wild looking!

Re: WDE Jan 12 --- IMAGES HERE!

I raise the finches. They have several color variations... the hens are almost as bright as the males.

Leoma Lovegrove has this whole thing going on, definitely google her. I have tons more photos from there. She wears crazy clothes and has a contract with Beall's Dept Store... you can buy her paintings on clothing, bags, drinking cups etc. We should all be so quirky.

Connie -- oh my gosh. I really feel for you. I've had TWO frozen shoulders, one lasted over 2 years and one about 18 months. Get well soon! In the meantime, paint with your teeth?
