January 2010 Challenge

                                                 January 2010 Watercolour Challenge

A little while ago I promised a January Challenge and mentioned you wouldn't have to paint the subject.

The challenge was:-

1 ) SUBJECT : Choose a Christmas Ornament before you put them away or a subjecr from a Christmas card.

2) COLOUR : Next you were asked to choose the colours you would paint the subject but NOT paint it!

3)  IMAGINATION : NOW I would like you tp paint the outline of ONE side of your subject and then  paint the background on this side ONLY using colours of your subject! Do NOT add any dteail and see  what happens.

I haven't painted my subject which is  from life as I avoid working from photographs as much as possible unless I know the  form well.

So,can you guess what my subject is considering it isn't there?

More importantly can anyone guess what YOURS is  when YOU try the challenge.

Let me know how you get on and I will add more challenges throughout the year to help everyone lose their pencil and enjoy painting watercolours with life!

Actually, I couldn't guess, but since you titled your file "Angel", that helped a little ;)

Great concept though.

Oh no! I did! Well next time I will remember not to! I am laughing here! I will add to it soon but I was trying to make this half difficult to see to try to get imaginations working!
