Welcome to this weekend's Weekend Drawing Event!
I will be posting 16 images and a challenge.
There's gonna be tons of animal photos this time, so I hope you like animals!
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, 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.
My sister, Mary Grace, and her friend John were kind enough to share some of their wonderful photographs for our WDE this weekend, so I hope you all enjoy them!
You can find the larger versions of most of the photos at this link.
If you're using the larger photos, please download them onto your own computer as the files will only be at that site until August 20th.
1. This is one of the beautiful photos provided by John. Sorry I don't know the name of the bird.
2. I think this is a heron? This was at the Toronto Zoo.
3. Monkey. (photo credit: John)
4. Penguin. (photo credit: John)
5. Alpaca. I found his little hairdo kind of amusing to look at.
