August 2008 Oil Pastel Monthly Challenge

Welcome to the August Oil Pastel Monthly Challenge.
I will be supplying two photos for you to work from. As you voted and wished one of them is an animal the other one a seascape . You can do one or both. As usually you are invited to be creative with the images - you can crop them, resize them, change colours and interpret them in any way you like.

Unfortunately the RIL still doesn't work properly, so I cannot upload the images there. If you are in need of bigger images, please let me know this and I will try to provide you with bigger ones.

Here is the seascape a wee bit larger

RG, I have a solution for you. Do them in both pen AND OP. You've got a whole month, my friend!

Silvia: GREAT photos. Did you take them? They are beautifully composed and should make for a great challenge. Thanks for hosting this month.

Wonderful photos! Thanks for hosting! I still have my OPs out from scrambling to do the July project yesterday so I think I'll dive right into this one.

Re: August 2008 Oil Pastel Monthly Challenge

Pat, thank you very much. I'm glad to be able to host this project his month )!

RG, glad you decided to join us this month ! If it was after me, I would be fine with a pen drawing as well, but you know, the rules say it has to be OPs... at least the major part , but I agree with Bill, you could do both a pen drawing and a OP painting ).
Here is a bigger pic of the two lion ladies. Although, I'm afraid that you won't get much more details even with a bigger photo, because I have taken this pic from a far distance (guess you can imagine why) and the zoom of this camera isn't the best.

Bill, thanks for the compliments. Yes, I have taken these photos myself. (Hey, I thought this was part of the rules after all ?! )
The first one I titled "Lioness Queen" was taken last spring in the Hamburg Zoo.
The second one was taken some time in fall last year somewhere in the Mediterranean Sea near the Spanish coast.

EP, I'm glad you like the pics and decided to join us this month, too .
Can't wait to see your finished painting ...

Bars, welcome to the challenge.

Gosh, EP, now that was fast!
I like your limited palette paintings and the way you play and have fun with bold colors (but I think I've told you this a couple of times already... )

Love the yellow and rusty tones, EP. Great sketch of one of the big cats.

Wow, that was fast, EP, though you indicated that you were going to get right to it. Great colors with your limited palette. Amazing.

Re: August 2008 Oil Pastel Monthly Challenge

Silvia, Bill, and Pat - thank you.

I think my cat looks a bit sad or lonely ... I wonder if I can insert the other cat into the left of the paper? Hmmm.

Just turn up the corners of its mouth into a smile, EP.

Simple solutions from simple minds!!!
