Title: Re: Monthly creativity Challenge 2022
Post by: Gita on February 11, 2022, 07:02:25 PM
Looks like that I almost found one. A big studio for a fair price. It belonged to the late artist spouse of this person. It is well equipped with rails for hanging paintings. It’s even good enough for making a Vernissage.
I am really exited.
Wish me good luck that this is good decision to take it..

Rob as in 'robbed of dignity'

Ok... it is a start, a quick sketch.   I am pretty rusty  :whistle:

Bill painted Robin Wood,
his painting is very good.

Mary Lou painted a robbin,
very soon Spring will be in.

Gita portrayed the thief,
larveging on its feast.

OK, OK I won't quit my daytime job, not ready for poetry but haven't had that much fun in a while  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Post by: Annie. on February 12, 2022, 09:25:38 PM
Good luck Gita!   What a treat it will be to find your dream studio.

We will be doing the same hopefully this summer.   Our plans were abruptly cancelled 2 years ago when the pandemic was declared.   Looking for a large lot outside big cities, and hope to either find the perfect house :whistle: or better build to spec; and then add a large studio on the property.   Most of all, will be looking for a friendly community...

Yes Annie, I am really looking forward to it. It’s difficult to get a big studio in Berlin for a reasonable sum of money.

I had this suitable sentence for my hedgehog story to fit the words of May and June. So, I felt so compelled to sketch. I am sorry if I am a bit ahead. Btw, I read that hedgehogs have to gain weight around 1000 grams before taking a long winter nap. Otherwise they have to interrupt their sleep if the weight isn’t high enough and search for food.

May: # heavy
June:# joystick

Hi Gita, Bill, Maria, and Mary Lou,
All very nice and interesting entries  :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

I have some silly ideas this morning, maybe this last snow fall did it to my brain although it is mild and beautifully sunny here.

1) Maybe time to put a real photo for my avatar... something funny and old... very old one  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

2) Also I was thinking of adopting an artist name for my own creation (not the lessons):  Anna?
 Hannah?  or maybe Annie?  :smitten:
Title: Re: Monthly creativity Challenge 2022

Post by: Gita on March 25, 2022, 11:53:36 PM
Annie, I adopted an artist name since my real name ( according to my opinion) is too long and a bit unpronounceable for some people. Imagine a person standing before my painting overtwisting his/her tongue to pronounce my real name if I used it as an artist name😂😂
And also, a short and catchy name is better for the human brain to remember, I suppose.
And until now people are thrilled that I have an artist name. It helps to differentiate my person from my first profession.
You choose Hannah? Anna? Any particular reason or attachment for choosing these names? You are the artist. You have to choose. 😘

Post by: Anant on April 20, 2022, 12:39:11 AM
I am new, needed to practice shading 3D shapes. So this month challenge was perfect for me to jump in  :)
Also bit selfish, I chose to shade my name. The drawing is symbol of Infinity.

In Indian language Anant = One that does not have an end  ::) = Infinity
So decided to give it a try.

One struggle for me is to get the dark shades, I used printer paper and getting true black appears to be a real challenge. Because of that it does not create the depth I wish to achieve. Any tips would be really appreciated.

Hi all, hope you are all well.  This is my thought for "heavy".  A heavy chain and lock. I can't remember where I found the reference.

This is such a good painting, Mary Lou!

As for myself, I am not in a position to follow the forum chats time wise. Work is a challenge at present.
So please excuse me if I am not too present in commenting.

Hi everyone, hope you are all doing well.  Here is my painting for turbulent.  Turbulent sea with sea gull.  Seascapes and birds really challenge me.
