Lightbulb WDE Aug 6 - IMAGES HERE

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.

6. Elephant.




7. Goat.




8. Aquarium. (Photo credit: John)




9. Grenadier Pond at High Park (in Toronto)




10. Cherry Blossoms. This was taken at High Park this past spring when my friend and I went to view the beautiful cherry blossoms. The Japanese Flowering Cherry Trees were given as a gift by Japan to the City of Toronto in thanks for accepting displaced Japanese Canadians after WWII.

11. Gumballs




12. Brick Street Bakery. (FOR THIS WDE ONLY!)
This was taken at the Distillery District in Toronto. It's an interesting place with lots of old Victorian industrial buildings that now house a number of art galleries.




13. Polish dancers. (FOR THIS WDE ONLY!)
Sorry for the blurry shot, but I really liked this photo because of their brightly coloured costumes.




14. This is Bob. Rommel's cute little dog. (Photo credit: Mary Grace)




15. My sister, Mary Grace, and her boyfriend Rommel. (Photo credit: Mary Grace) (FOR THIS WDE ONLY!)



16. Mary Grace and Rommel again. (FOR THIS WDE ONLY!) (Photo credit: Mary Grace)
Rommel brought his pet lizards to my sister's daycare to show the kids. He's laughing because he put them on my sister and she isn't a big fan of lizards at all! She just smiled for the camera, but she was making faces before that.





And now for the challenge! (Totally optional of course)

1. Ink and watercolour wash. Sketch directly in pen/ink and then colour it in with a watercolour wash (or ink/acrylic wash if you prefer). I always loved these kinds of sketches. They don't take long to do and you'll be surprised how well they often turn out.

2. Paper cut-out. Instead of drawing or painting, how about creating a picture with paper (or any other material)? I'm sure we all have tons of scrap papers, old magazines, newspapers and ads/junkmail lying around. Let's make art out of them!



That's all folks! I look forward to seeing what you guys come up with!

Enjoy!

Re: WDE Aug 6 - IMAGES HERE

Michelle,

Please thank John for those wonderful bird and animal photos. Each one will make a terrific painting. The Aquarium is outstanding for it's depth of color and detail. The Alpaca will be a hit for his crooked smile (reminds me of my new tiny grand daughter who laughs at my singing - for good reason).

Good challenges too. Thank you for hosting.

Paula
