A&W Fur,Feathers and Scale Challenge October 2017 All are welcome

These are all my photos...hope you like them.

Guidelines for the Challenge;
Please read carefuly - makes everything more exciting!!

On the first of each month a reference photo or photos will be posted in a thread entitled Fur, Scales and Feathers Challenge.

Artwork can be any size on any surface and in any medium. However, the central theme must reflect Fur, Scales or Feathers.

Each member taking part can create a work using the chosen reference/s
(whole or cropped).

ON THE 20TH OF EACH MONTH participants will upload their interpretation of the reference for comments. PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD WORK BEFORE THE 20TH.

It is much more fun when everyone uploads more or less at the same time.

At the end of the month, the thread/discussion will be closed and a new challenge will begin.

The Challenge should be a fun and an enjoyable experience so please join in.










didn't plan this..LOL cat looking at owl





Just thought this one was a little different.

How will anyone be able to resist putting together cat looking at owl, and owl looking at cat. You posted some great photos. Thanks.

Thanks for the photos, I think I have chosen mine! I'm going to print it out today and then I have no excuse not to get anything done in October

I love the owl / cat placement

Kay and Dottie, glad you like them. Yeah I had to chuckle when I saw the cat looking up at the owl. The butterfly is pretty cool to I couldn't believe when I took the pic how long their tongue is.

Donna - Many thanks for Hosting the October Challenge.
I've just sent you a PM asking you to post as my Inbox was full so I had to delete some messages before I could send to you again. But I see you've now posted anyway so thanks so much for that!!!! I'm sending you another PM....ignore the first one (as you can see I'm not having a good day!)

Donna, I was also about to send you an email. Glad you posted before I did. Also having a slightly hectic day!!!!! Nice references. Thank you very much for hosting this month. Your beautiful red setter dog on that chair is soooo elegant. Wish the photo was larger.

Re: A&W Fur,Feathers and Scale Challenge October 2017 All are welcome

Hullo Animal & Wildlife Challenge people.

Just to let you know I'm going to be offline from this Friday 6th October, for a while.

My husband needs an urgent operation, and we have to travel to another city with a better equipped hospital for it, so I won't have any Internet access, while my husband is in hospital here. Hope we aren't away for too long.

Donna, is hosting this month's Challenge, and Chammi will be here as Moderator, and we have some great Guides. So if anyone has any problems,
there will be plenty of people to ask for help.
