Happy New Year ^__^

Congratulations to the winners of the December Watercolour Challenge, bogfrog and 22by7! Thanks to everyone that participated :)

The challenge for January is imitation of a famous work of art. Draw/paint, etc something HP-related, based on a famous work. When you're posting your art, please provide a link to the original piece or post a thumbnail so we can all see your inspiration. I really think this will be a fun challenge; I can't wait to see all the results.
The tag is 2006_01

Happy New Year!

Watercolours and snow

It's finally started to snow for real, and my garden looks like a scene out of the Narnia movie - big, fat, fluffy snowflakes are whirling around in the air.

I finished my long suffering watercolour of Sprout's office, which I began working on ages ago for the challenge over on hp_details. Well, here it is:

Title: Sprout's office
Characters: None
Rating: G
Media: Watercolour *___*
Challenge: Watercolour challenge
Notes: This started out as a piece for the challenge to do a drawing of a professor's office over on HP Details. I decided to do a watercolour, as I see Sprout's office as a kind of homely sun filled place, full of plants and the tools of gardening, and with the quiet slow feeling that seems to be always present in the world of plants. Watercolour is definitely not my strong point, and I've largely only used them in my art to add a little colour to drawings. This suffers somewhat from that, as well as from the effects of having been made in myriad 15-20 minute sittings - oh, the joys of work and parenting!

After finishing that off, I felt an overwhelming need to do something simpler - I seem to always fall into the trap of trying to over-control my watercolouring attempts. Anyway, inspired by the birch in my snow covered garden, I made a simple scene with Pigwidgeon and a snowman. I don't think I had much success trying to let up on the control though - lol

Title: Snowman
Characters: Pigwidgeon
Rating: G
Media: Watercolour
Challenge: Watercolour challenge
Notes: I'm reasonably happy with this one :)

Hi Everyone,

Just a reminder to get your watercolor art in for the challenge, by Thursday Dec. 30th. I'll post the compilation and vote sometime early on Friday morning. If you want to post older work you've done, that's fine by me. Several people have done so already. Just comment in the thread and give me the links.

Remember, there's two categories to vote for now, prize and non-prize. If you want to be part of the vote, but not included in the prize category (2 months paid LJ time), then please comment here so I don't include you. Because you can't edit a poll once it's been made :D
