Lightbulb -> Wde 20-03-2009 ...IMAGES HERE <-

I will be posting 16 images and a couple of fun challenges !

You have 30 minutes to make your choice and choose your materials.

For the next two hours, just go for it! Use any medium or style – it’s up to you……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.

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 over the weekend into a single thread: multiple threads will be merged!

You have the whole week to participate - until the next WDE starts (usually Friday). If you finish a piece after that time, we now run a 'Catch-up' thread in the forum each month where you can post any WDE not completed in its allotted week .... it's a sticky near the top of the forum page.

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

Further information, if needed, may be found in the Schedule thread here.

Updated guidelines for Newbies.
and,
Participant Guidelines.

For a start a few photos by my son Guillaume the Biologist....

1. A lovely couple of Eider Ducks
f
rom the Rimouski area



2. The heartbreaking look of a baby Seal from the North Shore



3. A summer butterfly (Argyne Cybele) from our backyard




5. My hell dog Mulligan... hoping for Spring by AlainJ

Now for the flower lovers hiding amongst you all.....

13. Cannot miss the Dutch Tulips from the Ottawa Tulip Festival



14. Apple Blossom from my front-yard Apple tree...(where all the children have learned to steal an apple...)



15. The local tourist attraction : the Wakefield Steam train



16. And a rusty still life : from the Quay Café on the Gatineau River-Front





Enjoy your tour......

----- High resolution photos can be found on my Picasaweb site here

Now the 2½ challenges...

1. Cut and paste one of the images on a sheet of paper (smaller than the sheet) and imagine the remaining parts of the scene with your favourite medium.....

2. Let's make it Spring : Paint the scene in shades of GREEN (example : Make a triad of yellow, blue and a Sienna or Umber....) Of course if you are down-under you can make it to fall colours.....

2½... If you are hungover from St-Patrick... or if you have Irish blood, take another glass of whiskey (Bushmill or Jamieson will do) and paint everything in green.....

HAVE A LOT OF FUN.....

Oooo...

I am glad I wrote the bulk of a paper due on Tuesday last night for college. These images are a delight. Are we allowed to get creative with them? I am sometimes a textile designer and when seeing the butterfly I saw a motif for a pattern. Or do we have to stick to the basic. Just curious.
