Arrow Plant Parade: our forum challenge - November

Welcome to our November Plant Parade Challenge.


I'm your substitute host this month and will also be hosting until the end of January - but December and January will be combined into another topic - and maybe a later reveal date - because I know how busy most of you will be!

Typical of November (at least in the Northern hemisphere) are


Chrysanthemums........ Chrysanthemums .................. Chrysanthemums.......... Chrysanthemums


Few rules -
  • Any medium, any size
  • Any crop of reference - your own reference if you wish
  • Any discussion but no showing your work - yet!
  • Reveal day is 25th November.

Enjoy!


The references are all from the RIL - more here ....... or maybe even draw/paint some from life!

Beautiful photos.

Hard challenge, as much as beautiful potential.

Re: Plant Parade: our forum challenge - November

Glad you all like 'em .......... I know they're difficult but maybe an extra should have been ' just look for the essence of the mums rather than the reality'!!!

Hmmmm - wonder if we'll get any abstracts!

Quiet here! Hope that means lots of creative activity!

I've been doing my Acrylics challenge, so maybe I can get to chrysanths now!

Re: Plant Parade: our forum challenge - November

I think I'll take a photo of mine tomorrow in the daylight. The photo I took indoors in evening light seems a little blurry ...

Dewi, that link doesn't work.

I need to find a photo and get busy as we are traveling and go back to Texas tomorrow, so may be late posting mine.
