Welcome to ALL MEDIA PHOTO CHALLENGE 43m May 2914
Challenge: Create artwork based on any or all of these photos and themes. Use any medium and any style. Stick to the photo(s) exactly or just use them as a starting point - feel free to crop, change colors, composition, add or subtract elements or take a complete departure. In other words, HAVE FUN and keep painting!
I had a hard time choosing from all the references you sent! 30 plus! Some are saved for another time I tried to get the clearest and most varied ones so please don't be upset if I did not use all that you sent. Someone else would have come up with a different selection! I used the ones you had taken yourselves mostly to show how each of you view our world. So now I hope everyone is well and ready to go! Have fun!
