:surrender:   MARCH IS A SPECIAL CHALLENGE MONTH!!!    :surrender:

Please check the guidelines for each challenge as they may differ slightly
This month is abstract month!  :eek: Don't Panic ![/i]  I promise it will be fun, and you'll have a few options to play with.   :goofy:      :pullhair:      ^-^

1/  The photo can be rotated left, right, upside down, right side up, or flipped! Whatever takes your fancy.

1A/ Pick your colour if this one doesn't take your fancy.

1B/ Please do not make any other additions or changes.

2/  Please use only ONE medium in your painting. (watercolour, acrylic, oil, pastel) NO exceptions.  :knuppel2:
     
* Of course you may use pencil to draw out your outline!  ;) (not getting caught out on that one again)  ;D

3/  Post only your finished painting. If you require any help/advice please contact your nearest mental health center.  :jk: Kidding!
     Please post it in the medium appropriate Encourager Section where members can help you out.  :smiley6600:

4/  Have Fun!!!  Now Let's Go Paint!   :painting:     :yippee:

Please keep to just two colours. You can change one or both. You will be able to go crazy wild with everything in the upcoming abstract free-for-all in a few months time.  O0

 :yippee:   Great job Mary Lou! You did very well catching the various values.  O0   I got a little bit caught up with values if you've seen my sketches lately...  :whistle:    Always good practice no matter the medium!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thank you Mea and Val.  This was fun keeping your place with all the folds.  The changes in value kept it interesting too..really had to concentrate on this one

Well done MaryLou.  :clap: :clap:
 I tried to paint it with acrylics but got lost  with all the lines  :help: and I couldn't get the lines thin enough  :faint:, so i think watercolour is the way to go, unless you want to paint it on the large size 😂
