Lightbulb WDE August 15, 2014 ~~~IMAGES here~~~

Hello everyone,

Hopefully, I will be posting 16 images within the next few hours, and I would like to ask you to be really patient until all are uploaded before commenting - thank you! All photos are taken by me, except the one of the Strofadia Island Monastery,which has been taken by my sister in law and she granted us the copyright to use the photo for the WDE.

You have 30 minutes to make your choice and choose your materials.

For the next two hours, just go for it! Use any medium or style –
it’s up to you……then STOP!, scan or photograph your work and post it
in your own new thread with your title, beginning with WDE, plus
date, plus title.

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.

It’s fun for all to participate at the same time but not always
possible! Please join in whenever you can – you have a whole week!

After posting your contribution, please view others’ entries and
comment and encourage. Unless requested, please refrain from
critiquing.

Further information, if needed, may be found in the Schedule thread, the Updated Guidelines for Newbies, and, Participant Guidelines.


1. The first image is the actual invite photo that I have prepared, and I wasn't able to upload. This is an aloe plant, which due to the sun during Summer gets many other interesting colors except of the usual green of this plant.


2. Another plant that stands well against the dry and hot Summer days.


3. A red hibiscus from our house in the village. This one needs lots of water to resist during Summer, but now the little tree is wonderful with lots of these red flowers.


4. And the purple anemone wildflowers, which you have already seen in my invitation thread.


more to come in the next threads...

And for some variation in the reference photos:

14. Cats


15. Spider


16. Pottery at Olympia Museum



I hope you will find something you like among these photos to join us this weekend!

The challenge: before making your art work, make a fast (max 15 min) sketch to capture the sunlight and post the sketch together with your art work!
