Welcome to ALL MEDIA PHOTO CHALLENGE 30 APRIL,2013 Challenge: Create artwork based on any or all of these photos and theme. Use any medium and any style. Stick to the photo(s) exactly or just use them as a starting point - feel free to change colors, composition, add or subtract elements. In other words, HAVE FUN and keep painting!

Target Posting Date: APRIL 1ST -APRIL 30TH

BE SURE TO POST THIS MONTHS CHALLENGE WORK HERE IN THIS THREAD SO OUR CHALLENGES WON'T GET CONFUSED WITH EACH OTHER. IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING DIFFERENT THAN THIS MONTHS CHALLENGE PLEASE POST IN THE CHATTER THREAD.

Another posting note: When you post your painting, be sure to “sign” your post with the name that you wish for participants to use when

replying to your post. We are gaining new participants all the time and it is sometimes difficult to remember who posted what. An alternative would be to create a “signature line” that will automatically appear on each one of your posts. (If anyone needs instructions on how to do that, let Sam know and she will send instructions to you.)

Theme for the month of PEOPLE, PLACES AND THINGS, which gives you a lot of scope. I have converted one photo to black and white so you can see the values as it is a little busy. If you would like me to do any others start a conversation with me.

My challenge paint something you are afraid of or would avoid or add something yellow!

 Now for the Photos:

When I seen these two photos (this one and the other one with a cabin) I said those were made for Fred.  The rocks are well done as always and a nice pink tinge to the late afternoon sky.
