This is my April painting chalange. It is true that I finished in March! It was posted on my file a while ago, but I did not like the picture. I took another picture, and here it is. This is done before I started taking classes here at PB.  I love mountains! Doina

Nice entries again.  :clap:

Last time I saw a real mountain must be 35 years ago, it feels a bit odd painting them.  :confused:
But when the portraits give me some space I'll surely try!!!

Okay Jennylynn. I like the way the trees turned out too. It's your fault by the way, because you gave me the tip (on another post) on using a bristle brush to get that effect! So - you get the credit for the trees! :1hug:
 
 :thankyou: Mary Lou and Patricia :thankyou:

Post by: grandmapegi on April 11, 2013, 10:54:41 PM
i got alittle carried away on the mountains,and kept on going on the rest,  ::)   :blush: i removed the painting from the challenge and have started another one , i do understand that the true challenge is to keep within the true composition of the picture picked, whats why it is called a challenge or lesson, i can't draw,but my mind and hand go into another world with a paint brush :1hug:

Title: Re: APRIL PAINTING CHALLENGE
Post by: Happychappy on April 13, 2013, 03:18:12 PM
 :clap: :clap: Beautiful painting Grandmapegi, Everything is excellently done. However, it is somewhat different from the subject picture we were given and am wondering about it for I never know just how far one can go with their own interpretation of a given subject. Would be interesting to have some guidelines on this. However, as I said, your picture is gorgeous and you can be so very proud of what you have done.  Patricia
Title: Re: APRIL PAINTING CHALLENGE
Post by: Sarah (arch) on April 13, 2013, 03:53:06 PM
Patricia, this discussion came up in the composition section earlier. I'm not sure if your rad it or not.  You and I have talked about it before, and the opinion I gave was not the correct response. Here is the word from the chief from a discussion in the Composition Forum. Val says:


"Hi Guys, just spotted this discussion. If this painting is for the competition, you must paint the picture in the photograph. The colour scheme used is your choice. The composition must stay as true as possible to the photograph, otherwise it isn't the same picture. Minor changes will come about in each painting reflecting each individuals perception of the photo, but there has to be a limit somewhere, so moving/redesigning mountains is a definate no-no.Paint what you see."


Maybe she could sticky this at the top of challenge forum. It has really cleared it up for me. My pencil drawing is definitely not fulfilling that definition, but I'm going to finish as is and post it, but not as a challenge entrant. It is still a challenging learning experience for me, and a good exercise in composition. Fun too, except for getting lost in that woods so long. :2funny:
Title: Re: APRIL PAINTING CHALLENGE
Post by: Happychappy on April 13, 2013, 04:40:13 PM
 :thankyou:  Sarah for your explanation and for directing me to the "rules" which is what I thought. No, I did not read the discussion in the composition section so was unaware of it. However, what did come to mind after viewing Grandmapegi's beautiful painting was Tina's first painting in the last challenge which was not accepted as it was different from the chosen subject painting and others who had submitted a different painting from the subject.  Yes, I think it would be a good idea for Val to put these instructions under the challenge's chosen subject for all to see, especially the new comers as it would really spell it out and clear up any possible misunderstanding. 
 
Sarah, you are not alone for we have all been lost in the woods at some point. However, we have wonderful friends to shout "Polo" and rescue us.    :2funny: :2funny:
 
Patricia
Title: Re: APRIL PAINTING CHALLENGE
Post by: Val on April 13, 2013, 11:47:18 PM
Ok guys......as of the May challenge, it will be spelled out at the top of every challenge.  O0 So I guess we can be a little more lenient this month. How's that?  ;)
Title: Re: APRIL PAINTING CHALLENGE
Post by: njnjgirl on April 14, 2013, 11:54:30 AM

Title: Re: APRIL PAINTING CHALLENGE
Post by: polliwag on April 16, 2013, 01:59:30 PM
Pegi.. your painting is great.. love your colors!

Nice suggestion Sarah.  Why is it rules are so hard to remember?  I have to keep going back time after time .. after I didn't pay close attention the first time :crazy2: .. and then I still go back..
(not just here.. generally speaking.  I'm sort of one of those  "If at first you don't succeed, try reading the directions."  !!
Title: Re: APRIL PAINTING CHALLENGE
Post by: Bev S. on April 16, 2013, 03:13:14 PM

  Why is it rules are so hard to remember? 

'cause we generally don't like rules! :2funny: :2funny: Most of us would rather not have any rules!!
Ogden Nash said: In the world of mules there are no rules    Kinda think I agree with him! :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Way to go, Elizabeth! Just jump in with both feet. Well done. Now the photo. I see you go it into your album. Now just click on 'details' under your photo in your album. Look for the imbed code which appears underneath. [smg id=xxxx] now you just have to hit reply in the correct topic and type in that code exactly as you see it--no extra spaces and must be in brackets. Easy peasy once you know how.
