Lightbulb WDE Jan 4-2019 IMAGES HERE

I will be posting 15 images (sorry , this is as trim as I could make it) and a challenge

Please wait until all are uploaded before commenting - thank you.

You have 30 minutes to make your choice and choose your materials - you may use any medium.

For the next two hours, just go for it……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.

When you introduce your work, please add a description of size, medium, support (paper, canvas etc) and time taken.
If your work is digital, we'd appreciate a description of whether it's freehand drawing/painting, manipulated image or done using the filters available in some programmes - you could also say which programme you've used.
All are acceptable but we'd like to know the "hows, whys and wherefores"!!


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.

NOTE: To avoid forum flooding, please put all of your work during the weekend, for the current WDE, into a single thread: multiple threads will be merged!
From the following TUESDAY, you may open a new thread for later work.

You have the whole week to participate - until the next WDE starts (usually Friday). If you finish a piece after that time, please post in its own thread and try to give the date/host of that particular week - if you can!

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

Re: WDE Jan 4-2019 IMAGES HERE

13. my friend and I after finishing the 10K marathon on my birthday



14. Fairy Hill one of our last hikes of the year



15. a winter bouquet



My time in cypress Hills was spent learning and painting in the style of "The Group of Seven"

Nicolas Bolt: Inspired by the loose style of Vincent Van Gogh and the Canadian Group of Seven, is one of my favorite interpretors of this style

optional challenges:
1- make your painting sing with color as Nicolas Bolt does, (The brushwork literally radiates with energy of the forces of nature.)
2. combine images to make a composition of your own

best of all , have fun, and start the new year creating joy!!

What lovely pics Bonnie - such a very nice peep into your life - thank you!

I first heard about the Group of Seven a couple/three years ago from one of your fellow Canadians - I like their work .... will now view Bolt's work too.

Re: WDE Jan 4-2019 IMAGES HERE

Great reference photos Bonnie! Thanks so much for hosting!

Oh my... I now am Nicholas Bolt's biggest fan, well next to the people who paid that much for his beautiful work. Thanks for introducing us!

I hope I can play on Sunday.
