Lightbulb WDE Feb 1 2019: IMAGES HERE

I will be posting 13 images (including invitation image) 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.

NB. 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.

ok ... here we go!!! ...

1) Cherry tomatoes from our garden (larger image here)



2) Mountain near Banff, Alberta Canada (larger image here)



3) Mountain near Banff, Alberta Canada (larger image here)

So for a challenge, I thought we could go expressionist! Try using the expressionist style in your artwork.

Here is a definition and the link if you are interested in more info on expressionism...

Quote:
Expressionism

WRITTEN BY: The Editors of Encyclopaedia Britannica

Expressionism, artistic style in which the artist seeks to depict not objective reality but rather the subjective emotions and responses that objects and events arouse within a person. The artist accomplishes this aim through distortion, exaggeration, primitivism, and fantasy and through the vivid, jarring, violent, or dynamic application of formal elements. In a broader sense Expressionism is one of the main currents of art in the later 19th and the 20th centuries, and its qualities of highly subjective, personal, spontaneous self-expression are typical of a wide range of modern artists and art movements. Expressionism can also be seen as a permanent tendency in Germanic and Nordic art from at least the European Middle Ages, particularly in times of social change or spiritual crisis, and in this sense it forms the converse of the rationalist and classicizing tendencies of Italy and later of France.

ok... time to get at it!

HAVE FUN!

Re: WDE Feb 1 2019: IMAGES HERE

Beautiful little Hannah - I wish I could do her justice but it might turn out expressionistic - and not good!

Thanks a lot Mike.

Re: WDE Feb 1 2019: IMAGES HERE

i just noticed on photo #3 i have the wrong description. the waterfall is, in fact,
NOT a mountain, but Sunwapta Falls... about half way between Banff and Jasper, Alberta Canada.
