Nice to see all those different interpretations of 1 picture, and they all look so great!

 :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

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:

 :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:

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?  ;)
Cheers, Val

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..

'cause we generally don't like rules! :2funny: :2funny: Most of us would rather not have any rules!!
