WELCOME TO THE MAY DIFFERENT STROKES CHALLENGE
If you would like to host a Different Strokes, please see the Schedule thread here
Please read the guidelines below carefully.
On the first of each month a reference photo (or photos) will be posted in a thread entitled "Different Strokes".
Artwork can be any size on any surface but MUST be acrylic.
Each member interested in taking the challenge will create a painting using the chosen reference(s) (whole or cropped)
and on the 20th of each month participants will upload their interpretation of the reference for discussion within this thread, finished or not.
Be as inventive, creative and different as you wish!
PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD WORK TO THE THREAD BEFORE THE 20TH OF THE MONTH.**
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!!!
Hi everybody. Hope you enjoy these references. They are photos of trees taken on my last visit to South Africa. Looking forward to what you create . Happy painting.
