Re: ~*~*~*~WDE SATURDAY 10th JANUARY~*~*~*~

Kathy, I'm still not sure how everything will work on Saturday, I'm begging Scott to give us the uploader back so I can continue the job I started, but I don't think it'll happen. If not, there'll be a hotchpotch of methods to get to the pictures!

Dyin, Celestia, I look forward to seeing what you make of my pictures Celestia, I wouldn't call my beast a cow, he might get annoyed, and you wouldn't like him when he's angry! lol

Re: ~*~*~*~WDE SATURDAY 10th JANUARY~*~*~*~

Well, I plan to join y'all this Saturday. Ruth, my heart goes out to you for hosting this event during a week of sometimes maddening transition. Reminds me of that old maxim:

"Just when I figured out the answers, they changed the questions!"

I'm sure that all will go well under your direction. As somebody's mama used to say, 'It'll all come out in the wash'.

Hi Ruth:
The 'Uploader' will be coming back as per 'Scott' WC Administrator when I don't know. Also my plan would be to start the WDE thread add five images with an explanation 'More Images To Come' (let us know in the first thread how many images you plan). Then start your second post add five more images and just keep posting until you reach the end of your images.
Ruth we will ALL be very patient while you post your WDE thread and images.
Those who have Hosted a WDE understand how much effort one puts into each one. So we're here for you!
Kathy

Re: ~*~*~*~WDE SATURDAY 10th JANUARY~*~*~*~

Gary, I know, I'll manage, everyone else did! Glad you're joining in!

Kathy, yes, I will do that, I do want to add links to the larger images if anyone wants to use them, I know I often wish I could see more detail of a small area of a ref. pic (like your sewing machine). Thanks

Ruth

Looks like fun!
And we'll be very patient! Even if WC decides to go offline (like it did once last year just when the Drawing Event was going to start) we'll just keep checking until it comes back.

Re: ~*~*~*~WDE SATURDAY 10th JANUARY~*~*~*~

Hello Ruth. I'll do my best to be there! This is my first one and I'm a bit fuzzy on the rules.

...Is there a time limit? Are there any medium restrictions? When should the results be posted?

Sorry about the newby questions. _Joel

Re: ~*~*~*~WDE SATURDAY 10th JANUARY~*~*~*~

Hi Joel, welcome to the WDE! The rules will be included when I post the images, but I'll give you a brief explanation

You have 1/2 an hour to choose your image, and set up your materials, after I have posted all the images.

You then have 2 hours to work on your chosen image. You can use the whole image, or any part thereof, to provide your inspiration. If you don't finish the work in 2 hours, take a photo/scan of what you have done and post it here in the WC! gallery (include WDE and the date in the title). You can always continue working and post the results when you have finished.

There are no medium restrictions at all, watercolor, oils, acrylics, digital art, pastels, mixed media, collage, finger painting, glass (oh I wish somebody would be brave and try that!), ANYTHING GOES!

After the 2 hours some people go to the cafe guerbois chat room for a natter.

Basically this is about having fun!

Ruth

Joel you are very welcome!

I just looked through just a few of your threads and I must say I can hardly wait to see what you make of my photographs!
