Title: Weekly Creativity Challenge 2020
Post by: nolan on December 29, 2019, 07:17:45 PM
Creating on a regular basis is one of the keys to constantly improving as an artist.

Members are challenged to use the keywords of the week below to create an artwork.

The artwork can be in any medium and as elaborate or simple as you choose. Do whatever suits your schedule and time limit for the week as long as you create something.

For example if you have little time this week maybe do a quick pen sketch. If you have more time next week, you may decide to do a full painting and so on.
Here are the words for 2020:

The Australian Holey Dollar, the first recognized coin of Australia.
In 1812 40000 Spanish Dollars, which was valued at £10,000 were brought to NSW. The centers of the coins were punched out. The punched center, known as the “dump”, was valued at 15 pence, and the outer rim, known as the “holey dollar”, was worth five shillings.
Holey Dollar was 37mm diameter and Dump 19mm diameter. By making it two coins it increased the worth of the coin by 25 per cent.  William Hanshall, a convict transported for forgery, carried out the work for the Government.
Today’s value for mint condition = AUS$225,000

Here’s mine for “follow”
Family having fun following a cricket match.
Cricket is an important part of the culture of India. The Indian team shares a rivalry with the Pakistani team, and India-Pakistan matches are some of the most anticipated matches, and most watched television broadcasts in the country.

My entry for Statues ... This started of as a sketch and I got carried away with it.
From a Photograph I took some years ago at a Balloon Festival In Canberra (Australia) I have forgotten the name of it (Maybe Teresa  could tell me?)

Title: Re: Weekly Creativity Challenge 2020
Post by: TeresaM on February 10, 2020, 02:40:08 AM
Good drawing Bill.  :clap: :clap:
I think you are referring to the Enlightened Festival which lights up the main buildings with images projected onto them. During this time in March they also hold the Canberra Balloon Spectacular over several days.

# statue
WG Grace was an English cricketer who is known as the father of cricket. He played an instrumental role in the development of cricket and is widely considered one of England’s greatest players. He was the first English player to be honoured with a statue in 2000 at Lord’s Cricket ground which was sculpted by Louis Laumen.

OMG, I didn’t know this. ???
The painting was difficult. Hope you like it.

Made some improvements. I feel it’s good to wait for a day or two with water colours and apply some more layers before calling it finished. Here, I darkened some areas, added a shadow. Now it’s a mixed media, since I added some pen and ink lines.

Getting fond of statues.
This is a bronze sculpture of Victoria, standing on the victory column in Berlin. Berliners have given the statue the nickname Goldelse, meaning something like "Golden Lizzy".
Water colour. Too many folds Of fabric on the statue. Could have been better. How to get a homogeneous sky?

the shadow makes the angel and lion look more imposing doesn't it. Great job :clap: :clap: :clap:

What does bother me are the two highlights on the angel's forehead. Two highlights indicates two bumps whereas the forehead is a smooth rounding O0

W6 - Follow - I see that other also thought of the Yellow Brick Road  :)

W7 - Statue - Free hand - I choose a modern statue, easier  ;)  Unfortunately, I cannot get it to stand up  :whistle:

W8 - Chair - Free hand - A friend was kind to let me draw her chair, but complained it was taking too long... so she took off with the chair.  Finished the wheels from memory and I notice now that the left one is not even under the frame!!! :thumbdown:

Bill,
Well someone who won't get any home made cookies from his grand-ma.

Been rolling on the floor laughing, talk about imagination.  Sure the bolt on my left wheel is loose... must has been the grand-ma's chair in the song  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Thanks for sharing the video clip.

This is my submission for „music“. A cobra swaying to the music of a snake charmer.

But did you know that although snakes are able to sense sound, they lack the outer ear that would enable them to hear the music. They follow the pungi that the "snake charmer" holds with his hands. The snake considers the person and pungi a threat and responds to it as if it were a predator ( source Wikipedia)

Hi Everyone,
Great drawings and paintings!  Bravo!

I manage to keep up with the challenge by ding a quick work before bedtime.  But, no time to add much details nor time to go thru the process of photo and posting my work.

Saw we have a new Monthly Challenge... that will keep me from going to bed if needed.  Looking forward to listen to the tutorial.

Cheers!

Catching up.
W 9 - Big... as in big apple.   Done with only a HB pencil and no reference... I had nothing else with me.

W10 - Music... as in running out of imagination.   I saw someone writing with a marker, I borrowed it... had nothing else.   I do hope I have the correct notes for the 5th of B, I am not a musician.

Here is my "exchange" submission.  Exchange made me think of the stock market which led me to the wall street bull.  He is a famous statue in the financial district in New York.  They have moved him actually but I don't know his new whereabouts.  Just remember this as always being the symbol of the NY stock Exchange. I am also posting this in the encourager section for your comments and suggestions for improvement.

Really funny both of you Bill and Mary-Lou... I agree great minds. I suppose my version of cat is to follow. But,  for this time I shall post an old digital sketch of mine, since I am short of time at present. Muffin, Zuri‘s cat rather copy his caregivers diet, or he is in trouble. 😉

Hope you don't mind I am playing a bit.  Life has been sending me additional curve balls, in addition to CoVID19.

Dennis, Nolan, May Lou... you are all sharp, and thank you for playing 👍

Nolan, I should tell because I don't know if Bill is pulling my leg or not, but either way it is all good fun.

The eleven hour "XI" is missing... intentionally.  And the eye is meant to represent Dali's large eyes.  I actually saw him in 1970 or 1972?... and he said hi 😍  .  He was sitting behind me at a public outdoor show in Spain.  My dad said: S Dali is behing you, don't turn around.  Ya, like if that was going to happen.  He smiled (likely heard what my dad said), said hi and a few words. Ho my, I fell in love with someone 50 y my senior!!!  But teens forget quickly and I did by the time the trip was over.

Mary Lou, love your coo-koo clock.  They are rare now but they used to drive me crazy as a child.  Why could they just coo-koo during day time?
Title: Re: Weekly Creativity Challenge 2020
Post by: njnjgirl on June 16, 2020, 12:52:11 PM
Wow Annie, Dali saying Hi to you!  How fun, nice memory.


We had a cuckoo clock when I was small and I always thought it was creepy, never liked it.  The day my parents took it down, I was very happy! In the 70's we went to the Black Forest and we heard the real live cuckoos in the woods.  That I liked  :)

This is a quick sketch of a "moaning" bird or bonin petrel.    This is a burrowing bird that lives on Midway island.  It makes eerie moaning and grumbling sounds at night.  Researching moaning on google is how I came across this and found it interesting.

Oh yes, I discovered the „ moaning Myrtle“, a character in Harry Potter.  I found the description so interesting, eventhough I am not a Harry Potter fan at all. There’s more under this link.

https://youtu.be/k2rlQ9ELh4U

Myrtle Elisabeth Warren, after her death known as Moaning Myrtle was constantly teased and bullied because of her overweight physical appearance, which included glasses and acne. She often fled to the girls room to hide.
This is an attempt to sketch the 14 year old Myrtle as a cartoon.

While I was googling the word "credit" for some inspiration, I came accros the "Pashu Kisan credit card" given to 100,000 farmers in India.

Under this scheme, financial assistance of Rs.40,783 (around $ 558) is given for a cow and Rs.60,249 (around $ 824) for one buffalo. The scheme aims to benefit cattle rearers.
In addition, through this card, farmers can take loan worth Rs 1,60,000 without any guarantee. Such good support for poor farmers!

Here´s my sketch after reading this.

Good entry Bill. 👏👏👏
Educate me about the sign on the forehead... and the location and time of your worrior, if known 'a la Gita' ☺

I am still working on mine.  I start working on a scene of the 'Bataille du Linge' from WW I, but had to stop... a numbers of family members died in a few days there in the trenches.  I thought I would do my best to honor them, but it was too overwelming.  I now undertands that Art relates and reports not only history, but emotion, and current affairs, etc.

So I decided to work on something that survived, it is called 'war art'.  It had sit in my rooms over the years (a gift from my grand-pa who served in WW I to me when I was 10 yo).  I am trying to reproduce it in 2D.  Will keep you posted if I can manage it.

Thiweek topic is very emotionally charged...

For "war" i found a picture of an Indian War elephant on the internet for reference.  Looked for the artists name but was unsuccessful.  But here is my rendition.

W37 - war:  Le Linge, Alsace. WW I

The topic was an emotionally  difficult one.  I wanted to do something to honor the many lives lost (including my family) in Le Linge, Alsace during WW I.   The trenches during a special battle was later named 'Les tombeaux des chasseurs-alpins' (crude translation:  the coffin of the "alpine hunters", this is an elite section of the army in France; it was referred as their coffin because so many died in just a few days).   First, I wanted to do a blank and white, or a Notan, of an image of the trenches.  My own grand-father survived with wounds, obviously, but this three bothers died in two days.  Then, I decided that I should honor them with something more beautiful.

Now, here is story behind my drawing:   it is one of a pair of shell, 35 cm tall.   When I was 10 y.o. my grand-father told me the horrors of being in the trenches and that his buddy passed time by making those two 'art' from shells sent in their direction.  My grand-father told me that when they finally left the trenches, he alerted him that he was forgetting his 'art'.  Apparently, he said 'that? it is crap, just old shells that did not kill us, I made them to kill time so I did not have to think'.   My grand-father decided to take both of them, and I was told carried them with him for 2.5 years.  When he gave them to me, I asked 'what happen of your camarade?'.   He did not know, they were separated soon after and he did not even know if he survived the war or not.

The shells has been on display in my rooms since I got they... for over half a century.  There is an inscription engraved under but it is to identify the shell, not the original owner.

Here is my lame reproduction:

Wow Annie, what a great story and what a priceless piece of art you have from your Grandfather.   I love your drawing. :yippee:

Wow what an incredible story. I can't even begin to imagine how brave those men were. :knight:
I am incredibly grateful that I have not had to go into combat.

You have two beautiful mementos and the drawing has done them proud :congrats:

Lovely drawing Annie and a beautiful poignant story. Do you have his medals?
I have my great uncle's medal from WW1, one of is the the French Medal of Honour. He survived the war only to die of the influenza.
The stories I have come from my mother who was very close to him.

Thank you all, very kind words.

No Bill, only a photo from the early 1960's when we wore all of them for some kind of function. I assume a cousin, likely his child now, have them.  In my family those goes to the first child, who passes them to first child, etc.  It was rather unusual that I got those shells.  My father's medals were lost when we immigrated to Canada.

Pleased you were spare active combat Nolan.  WWI was the war that was supposed to end all wars.  Probably why they were so brave, dreaming of peace for thei children and grand-children.

Maybe why I am a peaceful person and has always refused to have any guns in my house, including hunting.  War doesn't resolve war.

Bill,
I often have that problem when I take photo from my cellular phone... I try everything, portrait and landscape, then crop; yes I rotate before posting... today I rotate and post all 4 directions the same photo... all repositioned in landscape. 

ACTUALLY if you hold your cursor on the photo to open the high resolution image... it will display correctly! 

Nolan is aware.

sadly the forum software is simply too old to recognize the orientation component of the image so nothing I can do about it :'(
Title: Re: Weekly Creativity Challenge 2020
Post by: njnjgirl on September 24, 2020, 09:15:08 PM
Annie, when I submit a photo and it's orientation is landscape, what I do is re-size it on my computer a bit smaller.  Then for some reason it shows up portrait.  Hope this helps.
