WELCOME TO THE JANUARY 2010 DIFFERENT STROKES CHALLENGE
If you would like to host a Different Strokes, please see the Schedule thread here
Please read the guidelines below carefully.
On the first of each month a theme/subject, reference photo (or photos) will be posted in a thread entitled "Different Strokes".
- All entries must be for this challenge and in acrylics - any type of acrylic.
- Join in the discussion about the project - it's friendly and fun to learn how others are coping/struggling/thriving!!! But no visual images!
- Help can be gained from asking but also from looking for resource materials elsewhere - the RIL e.g.
- A 'reveal' date for all is 21st of the month - that gives us 3 weeks to make the work, plus an extra week for latecomers
Interpret the ideas any way you wish - be inventive, realistic, influenced by another style or '...ism' - it's up to you!
PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD WORK TO THE THREAD BEFORE THE 21ST OF THE MONTH.** Much more exciting and fun to see what 'masterpieces' appear!
If work is uploaded early it will be moved to a safe place until 21st.
At the end of the month the thread /discussion will be closed and a new challenge will begin.
**Please note, the single 'reveal' date is chosen so that we do not influence each other with our individual interpretations ......
that's the whole point of it being called 'Different Strokes'!
By all means ask questions in the thread or initiate discussion about the challenge - just don't post images!!!
The challenge this month is WINTER
The subject choice is your own but there are lots of pictures in the RIL Winter category here, should you need a reference.
The twist is to paint it in the style of your favourite 'ism', movement or artist.
I said I would keep it simple! ............... have fun!
