: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 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 drawing. (graphite, ink, coloured pencil, pastel pencil) 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 Draw!    :twoguns:      :yippee:

I did consider something along those lines, but decided for this challenge to keep it as is. If you rotate the photo around it does give different effects. Possibly even a diagonal view? Instead of just the usual square/rectangle format, change the shape of the support for something different.....

There will be a free-for-all abstract challenge coming up where you will have total freedom to create 'whatever'.  :D

Well done!  O0    :clap: :clap: :clap:
