There's a website I like to look at called Daily Paintworks. It's a site where artists can join with other artists, paint "together", critique each others' work, and even sell their work. They also host "challenges" where a topic is chosen and then everyone paints their version, photographs it, and then uploads it onto the site for all to see. Some challenges are ongoing, some are a one-time deal. Here are three of the challenge categories that I would like to enter and some of my own photos that I would paint from.
White on White
Taken at home with my grandmother's platter, a small pitcher, and a "Lime Light Hydrangea" from my garden. The rule for this one is, 85% white.
Up Close Animal
Taken in the country, on the way to Monches Farm and at the Wisconsin State Fair last summer.
Paint It Primary
I took this on a small island off Captiva. The first one is the original color, the second one is with the color altered to be a little more aqua. I loved the way the little boy was fascinated with his shadow in the sand. I would take some liberties by adding some red to his shorts to qualify for the primary color category.
Yesterday, I thought I had it all sorted out.
Now to choose . . .
