Different Strokes : A Forum Project March 2013


WELCOME TO THE MARCH DIFFERENT STROKES CHALLENGE



If you would like to host a Different Strokes, please see the Schedule thread here
Please read the guidelines below carefully.

GUIDELINES:
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!!!

Sorry for the late start .....ooooooppppsssss

For this month I would like to stick to the "Theme" idea that Maureen mentioned earlier in the year. So for this month I choose BABY ANIMALS
What better way to celebrate spring, than with some cute little furries
Feel free to paint from the images provided or choose other baby animals as you see fit.

RIL links - LINK TO THE CYGNET and the LINK TO THE BUNNY

Hope you all join the fun

OH, No! They are too cute. I am so busy remodeling my house right now but I am going to have to see if I can find my paints and give one of these a try.
