Arrow ***january 2016 A & W Challenge***




As I haven't been able to contact the member who was Hosting this January Challenge - I'm Hosting January.

All artists and mediums are welcome, any size, any medium but you must
use one of the photos refs provided. All photos, for this Challenge, are from the RIL

You can crop, or use any part of the photo etc in any way you want to
but do remember to tell us the size and medium used.

If you require more information on the Challenge the "Guidelines" are
posted as a sticky at the top of the Forum page.

Please remember NOT to post your paintings until "reveal day" which is
January 20th


It makes it more interesting and much more fun, if we all stick to the same
"reveal day". We then have the anticipation of seeing everyone's work at
about the same time.

Thanks Viv, and happy new year

Great selection of pictures, I am torn between four of them at the moment. I love the crab!

Re: ***january 2016 A & W Challenge***

Erm.
I id reply on messages and the Dec thread.

In fact I have spent the last couple of hours sorting them out. I was just about to post them!

Oh well, only 3 hours of my life I won't get back.

I shall save it to a folder for the next time I'm needed.

It is New Year's Day so I thought I might have had a bit of latitude. I know in the antipodes it is probably 2nd Jan but not here, or in the US!

Not the first time. Someone hijacked my Oil Pastel one last year.

If you all know me you know I don't let people down but because I have some sick days I may sometimes be a few hours late!

The crab Pic is wonderful as is the green tree Boa! I really admire snakes and crustaceans! I may well work on those this month! Thanks for hosting, Viv!

Great selection, Viv! Especially love the Meerkat. And my squirrel is up for the Watermedia challenge this month too, just in case anyone wants to kill two birds with one stone. So to speak.

Re: ***january 2016 A & W Challenge***

Thanks and Happy, Healthy New Year, Viv! I really hope to do the meerkat, but there are several that really appeal to me. Since we retired we have been doing a never-ending list of home improvements/projects and I've barely done any artwork. So there is some "fear" of failure! Well, I'll "get back on the horse".

Can't wait for reveal day with all of these talented artists!
