Post your painting for May 2017 Challenge here.

1/ Post only one painting per person. Post only your finished paintings. If you need help, post it in the encourager section.

2/ Do your best to keep your entry as close as possible to the original Challenge photo. Please DO NOT make additions or changes to the subject unless otherwise stated. We try to maintain a fair and equal field for all entries from beginner to advanced.
Feel free to use the subject photos in your own creation BUT place it in the Encourager section, NOT in the challenge. Thank you for your ongoing support of these challenges.

3/ Any single paint medium may be used including; watercolour, acrylic, oil, watercolour pencil, brusho, inktense or pastel. If it is not specifically listed, DON'T USE IT! If you are unsure, PM me directly.

PLEASE NOTE: At this time do not combine w/c with w/c pencil, or gouache.
There will be changes forthcoming allowing the more advanced painter to combine these mediums under w/c. Thanks for your patience.

4/ When posting your entry, please list type of paint (w/c, oil, acrylic, w/c pencil, inktense) used. Appreciated as it may help someone with less experience.   

5/HAVE FUN!!    :painting:

I'm not very good with remembering various names of birds. This one was taken up in Ontario, Canada a few of years back.

Lovely Eliazabeth. You have inspired me to do something.  :heeha: I am going to do something quite silly....I'm going to have a go at this with my new pastels.  :faint:      :painting:

 :heeha: Oh my Jolly G!!! I spent about an hour and a half and am almost done!!!  :o   That's unheard of!!!  :faint:   I'm not very quick at drawing let alone painting.  :yawn: :2funny:   If I was painting this, I'd have a day or two in by now! The afternoon breeze is filling in coming up the river so will have to pack up until late tonight/tomorrow morning to finish. Much too hot to close up the boat and I've already done the 'fan' bit!  :doh:
Cheers, Val

 :tongue: Guess what?    :heeha:   It is done!!! Will post as soon as it's light enough to take a half decent picture. I now understand why most of the pastel artists I have seen paint large! I had to do a major blow-up of the photo in order to be able to use my sticks. Since I don't have really large paper I have only done the bird on his branch. It won't be counted in the challenge. I'll also post it in the pastel section. What a learning experience!  :D     :2funny:
Cheers, Val
