The theme for August is "Summer Vacation".
So no rules, no restrictions, just relax and do whatever you want with the subjects below!

For our landscape choice, I thought this might be good for those of you experimenting with your new Cobra paints:

Perfect Sunset-Dubai by Utpal on Flickr
http://www.flickr.com/photos/utpalnath/1668436049/sizes/m/


Apple, Pear, Banana by DeusXFlorida on Flickr
http://www.flickr.com/photos/8363028@N08/3089130704/


Rooster by Fayes4Art on Flickr
http://www.flickr.com/photos/67156567@N00/212965790/


Congo Refugee by Baba Steve on Flickr
http://www.flickr.com/photos/babasteve/4563414319/

If you click on the links under the photos, you'll go to the Flickr page where various sizes of the photos are available to download.
Once again - we're "on vacation" - so do whatever you want with these. Acrylic (or other mediums) for an underpainting, go abstract, get hyper-realistic....Whatever you want to do....Just have fun!

Very nice photos, Callie! Could you tell me about these flicker photos--can we find the photographer and ask permission to paint his photos, so that we can sell them, or are they for practice only? Thanks a lot.

Dayle, not all Flickr photos are up for grabs, so we look for photos available under the Creative Commons license. Here's what it allows:

http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/

You'll notice that the photographer's Flickr name is listed along with a link to the photo. If you needed more information or had questions about using the photo, you can contact him/her. Otherwise, just give credit to the photographer. Example: "Sunset"- Inspired by a photo by NAME on Flickr, then include the link to Utpal's gallery. I'd put this sort of info on a card stapled to the back or make a list of photo credits if it's on a website.

This is from PD Photos (http://www.pdphoto.org/) which I often get challenge pics from:
Quote :
If You Use A Photo:
If you do use one of the picture you find here, please consider
supporting the site by linking back and/or giving credit for any
pictures you used. But you don't have to. Feel free to leave a message
in the comment area for the image you're using if it's something you can
link to. The pictures are free for you to use and you should feel good
about doing so.

I swear I'm not making this up - I just got a request for a painting of a rooster! I really didn't plan this - I was going to do the portrait. Laughing Laughing Laughing

Well I do have all these references sketched out on canvases ready to go at the camp and I plan on doing them all. At this pace I'll probably have them done by next summer. Laughing

lol thanks Callie for the cheer. I think at this point a good kick in the pants would work. Laughing BTW I did get the Cobra set that I won. So I'm looking forward to giving them a good test run. Smile
