Lightbulb WDE 26th - 28th March **IMAGES HERE**

WDE 26th - 28th March

Images from Andalucia

I didn't realise how difficult it would be to select just sixteen images, agonising decisions!

I can cheat a little by including the image in the WDE Invitation. The incredible Mesquita at Cordoba is a must see on any visit to the area.

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 like to know the "hows, whys and wherefores"!! Some of us may want to try it.

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.

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, 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 when you can. Unless requested, please refrain from critiquing.

I've added a challenge at the end of the images. Right, here goes....

This cannot be missed out. The spectacular Alhambra Palace in Granada



A sample of the astonishing Moorish decoration inside the Alhambra



Bunuel made a very famous film 'Un Chien Andalou', here's the original...



In the interests of political balance here's 'Un Chat Andalou'..



In the heart of Andalucia, Landscape at Ribera Baja, Alcala la Real in the background



Me sketching on the roof at Casas Nuevas



The Andalucian traveller..



Alison got to practice her Spanish with this olive farmer at Ribera Baja



Pomegranate trees and La Fortaleza at Alcala la Real



Two images of a flamenco troupe in Cordoba, these guys were superb





Tree roots in Sevilla



Pastry owls, Sevilla



In the fabulously beautiful gardens of the Alcazar, Sevilla



And finally Alison, the complete Andalucian tourist



As a challenge I suggest.....

Study the image of the Moorish decoration from the Alhambra. Make a calligraphic fantasy based on the rhythms and shapes you see there.

I hope these images inspire you! I am really looking forward to seeing the work you all produce.

Have fun!

Harry

Ps

PS...

The site only allows 15 images at a time. Here's a last one for the flower specialist (or, of course, anyone else!). This was in the wonderful Alcazar gardens in Sevilla.....

Good Morning Harry... Paints are out and the coffee pot is minus one cup.

Spain looks wonderfully warm and inviting. There are a few photos that really caught my eye right off. I think I'm ready..

Thanks so much for hosting.

Catherine

These take me back a few years Harry - a joy to see!
Hard choice though - I'll deliberately not get seduced by that hibiscus!!!

Hey Harry, what would you consider a calligraphic fantasy? I'm afraid I don't know what that is.
