CHALLENGE #2 - 4 Seasons

Here are the black and white photos that I will offer to any of the students who decide to do
our second challenge -- They may choose one of the photos and will be expected to do at least two wall hangings, or preferably one for each season - The work must be a real contrast- It would be wonderful to have a series of four to go together. The minimum size will be 12" x 14"

They will have to choose entirely different palettes for each season - this is the fun of it.
I have nine pictures for them to choose from -and here they are: I think it will give lots of different scenes to choose from.The student may choose one photo for each season, or, if preferred one photo for all the seasons. The cabin is ours, and if I were doing the challenge I would leave out the chairs and would do the same with the other photos. Reducing the amount of detail on most of them. ---- Please if you read this blog, would you mind putting a comment in with your thoughts about this challenge. I would love some input.

I love the idea of having a single photo recreated in 4 seasons. I won't have access to my stash (or fabric) until May so I won't finish the first one in the time specified. I will, however, complete the challenge this year.

Your photos provide lots of food for thought. I started collecting winter fabric for Helene Knott's pattern, Multnomah Falls, after making it in summer colors. Thank goodness you're accepting a smaller size. Being able to use more than one photo is good.

Shirley, I am not going to be able to complete your whole challenge, I am very busy until at least the end of April. I am going to a retreat in New HAmpshire the last weekend of that month and things should slow down then. But I would like to take one of your photos and do two seasons by the end of your challenge. Is that alright?

Shirley said...

Yes, it is fine with me. I answered by email as well as here.

The photos which are numbered are in the learningfa photo album, and the guidelines are in the files. Looking forward to hearing which picture you wish to do. Shirley
