March & April-- 2016 -- Photo Paint-a-long

Hi Art Buddies -

Here are some great photos for a paint-a-long.

Just paint them however you like.....or do an abstract approach, or a one or two color study.....use pencil instead of paint,...........

anything goes here in Classical cause we are at the " top of the stack" so to speak....with all the glorious art history underneath us, encouraging us to syncronize or divert.

all I know is that I'm glad to have your company on this journey!

Oh, So glad you posted those photos Brian......we now have a well rounded bunch with the additional mechanic and botanical......

Yes, yes, tyree...am looking forward to seeing the oil pastels....they are marvelous .....so different from water mediums.......

Just realized that March is half over.....I'll extend this thread to thru April.

And just because, here are two more.

Took the picture of the monkey in the tree not far from here, in a semi-urban area. I like the negative shapes made by the tree branches:



And this old wagon I encountered in the artsy town of Parys while on an outing there with friends. It just begged to be photographed, and drawn:
