Sarah, thanks for hosting this month. Sorry it took so long to post it today but Howard looked at my computer to check for updates. as it was sitting on ready for me to get to work! Of course it didn't work properly and froze and did all sorts of nasty things which is why I don't mess with them until I have finished whatever I want to do on it! Sooooo half the day was gone by the time I got to it! Anyway here it is enjoy everyone and thanks Sarah!
Sarah, GREAT selection; thanks for getting these together. Now to pick...

Thanks Kim...you were quick off the mark! !

I chose the 'HANDS' extra theme long before Claudia had been given 'advice' on her Eve's hands, my ref. photos were sent to Jen before Claudia had uploaded her painting!
Sarah, what beautiful photos!
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
Thank you Sarah, great Theme!!!
C&C always welcome
This is an older wc.
I might do one like this again. I liked the hand pose. Hands need a lot of practice, I hope I WILL HAVE TIME TO TAKE THE CHALLENGE.
I like the colours and loose brushwork...it would be very interesting to see another version...make sure all the joints are there!!
SARAH ~ The photos you chose for the month are great! The extra challenge of HANDS is well worth the study. I know I can use it! I used to go to the library and copy the drawings of Albrecht Duerer. Love him! Then my grandmother presented me with a huge coffee table book of his drawings. Heaven!!!
Claudia - good WC of the hands. I agree with Sarah! Can't wait to see something new from you for the challenge!
Comments and critiques are welcome.
Claudia, well done, hands are not easy!
I've always classed Durer as being as great an artist as Leonardo da Vinci/Michaelangelo or any other of the great Masters...I like all of his work including his woodcuts.
You couldn't have chosen a greater mentor.:-)
Beautiful hands Claudia. Well done.
C and C always welcomed
Sarah wonderful photos references. I love that you chose hands. I am hoping to find time to experiment with the theme.
Claudia your hands look great. Very expressive the way the hold the flower.
C&Cs always welcome
Hello to all...I am pleased the extra theme is receiving the thumbs up!!!!!!!
Hands are so expressive even when just resting.
