November's Plant Parade - a forum Project

Welcome to the November Edition of the Plant Parade.

This month our choice of plant is the Chrysanthemum, in all, or any part of, its glory!

The images here are all from the RIL,
BUT

-the challenge this month is to try to work from LIFE if you can.
For most of us in the Northern Hemisphere, 'Mums' are in abundance at this time of year - for our 'downunder' members, you may need the images!!!

There are few rules

Crop, enlarge, distort, play, manipulate a reference in any way you wish.

Marvel in the colour, shapes and patterns of this glorious example of Nature.

All media welcome - mixed if you wish

Discuss, banter with others about your choice(s), your successes, finds and/or difficulties in this thread, but reveal nothing until 25th November!

If you subscribe to the thread it's easier to keep up with it.

Huge apologies that I won't be around for next 3 days - until Sunday evening ........ I'll be away without any Internet connection ....... it's also been 'down' today, so this is rushed

Oh my goodness all those petals. This really is a challenge Maureen.

But a good excuse to go and buy more flowers

Re: November's Plant Parade - a forum Project

Viv, it was just that I had already decided to challenge myself and it has a million petals, but onward!!

Ulla, can't wait to see how your new Neocolors II work!!

Marion, you will have such fun with this one and make it just sing!!

Wheeee. . .mmmmm. . .have our Mission House Art Show on the 9th and that will slow me down, but I intend to keep it going. This is our 6th year. . .I show and help organize it. It is a labor of love for the MH and our Art Teacher, Genny, that passed away with cancer three days after our first show. We all worked in the MH together and she was so proud of it!!

Hugs, Peeps!!

Katherine

Re: November's Plant Parade - a forum Project

The references are so tempting but it's a good excuse for hubby to buy me some chrysanthemums. I want to paint cheerful, bright chrysanths because for me they have some association with funerals and D.H. Lawrence's 'Odour of Chrysanthemums' which I studied at school.
So, lovely bright Autumnal flowers. What a super challenge.

Holy cow!!! That first pic is terrific. I just might have to have a go at this. Got some new scratch boards. I have never done scratch board so that photo is very inspiring for it.

Re: November's Plant Parade - a forum Project

Margaretta - there's such a variety in the flower isn't there - not all funerary!!
They're also November's birthday flowers

C - I do hope you give the scratch a try - it can be fantastic ..... it'll also be good to have you drawing again
