Hi Val,
Thank you for the encouragement.I’ve used soft pastels. I was painting it when I read the tutorial and realized that there were broken patterns in it. And some that I could break to make it more interesting! So, I finished it and made it my first submission. Funny  how we do things without thinking. Without the tutorial I wouldn’t have thought of the importance of patterns. Lesson learned. Thank you!!!!

Here is my Pattern Challenge;
The Pylons are the repeating - (bit irregular) pattern & the goat (once a well loved pet), breaks the pattern by giving a focus.
I used various types of pencils, Pastels & fine liner.
It is taken from a photo of Zeebs @ our local beach & she was posing with her "beach babe" expression

I didn't realise until I set to this challenge, how much patterns form really interesting pictures...now that's all I'm seeing these last few days.. Lol.
I really loved doing this - Thanks Nolan, it was fun :)

 :clap:  Back to painting at last,  after a long long break. Too long as I could not upload my entry for the challenge in time. I gave up after 45 minutes and left it in my album.

 :gl: everyone - there are some interesting entries.

Edit by Nolan : Here is your entry Cath:

The Migration of the Albino Canada Goose (acrylic on canvas, 16x20")

The pattern is obvious, a group of Canada Geese flying in the traditional yet imperfect V-shape flight pattern; broken by the presence of a rare albino goose.

This was a real challenge at all level and I enjoyed every part of it.   I borrowed about a dozen of books from the public library and spend most of the month reading about Canada Goose, doing many sketches of the birds.  Then choosing my favorites and putting then into various rough compositions.  I finally went for a simplified style for my painting.   I started painting at the last minute (i.e. 2 days ago) and grossly misjudged how long it would take me.  My worst mistake was to finish tonight after dark... the photo is not great under artificial light.

All in all, I learn a lot about our National Bird and I am most happy that I have hold a brush again after two years.

NOTE:   THIS IS CATH'S PAINTING...not mine!  Annie

Cath,
I am happy you are also painting again, but sad you could not upload your painting.
Is this the painting you wanted to submit?  If yes, I hope this will be accepted as your submission for the challenge... if not, please let Nolan know and I will probably have my ears rub...

Annie,   :thankyou:,  Yes, that is the one  :smitten:. And I am happy you have picked up your paintbrush again, too.

Nolen, to be fair towards others, if the entry was too late, or did not meet the challenge, it won‘t upset me to have it removed.
Love this new concept for the challenges.

The shell immediately popped into my mind  :idea: after reading what the challenge was about. Yesterday afternoon while painting, I thought the opening out of the shell would be enough to break the pattern of the lamella/ribs, but last night, it dawned on me that that wasn‘t enough, so quickly  :painting: added the sea-slug.

Painted with water-colours and iridescence for inside the shell.
