December 2018 Animal And Wildlife Challenge

Hi all you animal lovers,

This is the last challenge of 2018. What a great year of challenges we have had and I would like to thank all those who generously hosted them. There were wonderful references and a terrific response from our artists. Thank you all so much for your support of this forum.


All the photos are my own and you are welcome to use them however you wish – as part of this challenge or for your own use commercially or otherwise. Just enjoy the process of painting, drawing or whatever medium you prefer.

It might be fun to give your works a Christmas or Seasonal feel but that is entirely up to you.

GUIDE LINES FOR THE CHALLENGE



Please read these carefully as adhering to them makes everything a lot more fun and exciting.

On the 1st day of each month reference photos and will be posted.

Your artwork can be any size (as long as it adheres to the size specified by WC) and in any medium. You can post as many works as you like using the photos provided (whole or cropped).

The reveal date will be the 20th December 2018.


Please do not post before this date.

It is a lot more fun if we all post at the same time. However, you are welcome to upload your work until the end of December when the challenge closes.

I am looking forward with happy anticipation to see how you interpret the photos.


Sorry, could not get the uploader to work but eventually sorted things out so the photos are in the next post.

Looks like some sort of sanderling, Kay.

Thanks, Chammi, for the excellent photos.

EP - hope you find time to join in.

Kay. The bird is a Whimbrell. I spotted him walking amongst the seaweed. He was fairly large - much bigger than a sanderling. Glad you like the images.

Penny. Looking forward to your contribution. You always seem to attempt so many challenges. My utmost respect.

Re: December 2018 Animal And Wildlife Challenge

Hi Chammi and everyone - I am back online partially. We are still waiting for phone and Internet to be installed at our new house, and now I've got my cellphone fixed I can post with it. But I'm on limited time. But just wanted to say hi to everyone and thanks to you all for keeping this Challenge and our wonderful Forum alive and active while I've been offline.
