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! 

Theme: This months theme is RIOT OF COLOURS! SO THINK COLOUR, COLOUR, COLOUR plus one colourful Van Gogh  painting for you to either copy or come up with a painting based on Van Gogh's style.

All the photos are from Public Domain.
















 Fruit and Vegetables

 Finally the Van Gogh

So go for it! I wish I was around as I would do a lot!

Start a one day Gerri is having a go so who else is up for the challenge!

Jen C & C's always welcome

This is #1 only 30 to go.  Wc 6x10 on Arches rough.  I think I will do a little work on the stems to give them more form but other than that it is done.

How does Moses make tea??  Hebrews it.


C and C always welcomed

Jen, great reference photos. Love the colour theme.

Geri, way to go!!! Lots of colour with your peppers. I agree that some extra work on the stems will finish it off.

Thank you for the reference photos Jen.  I see a couple there that I might like to try., one of which, I doubt I could pull off to my satisfaction.

Is that madness in the eyes of the two carousel ponies?????   They might make an interesting Halloween painting.

Jen, thanks so much for your COLORFUL PHOTOS!  Also for all the work you have put in the AD site the last couple of months; as an artist, a moderator and a verrrrrrry helpful person!!  You deserve a long vacation ~ have a great time.

Geri, Glad you did the peppers; they also caught my eye!  I like the highlights and the yellow one is eye catching.  Great job on your first one-a-day.

Comments and critiques are welcome.
