When I first heard about today’s art challenge, I cringed. We don’t get many opportunities to see a real city skyline. Then I realized it happened to coincide with a trip we needed to make to New Orleans, LA. I was so happy!
…And then I thought about it some more. The nifty thing about this art challenge group on facebook is that the artist has the freedom to choose the interpretation of the theme and the medium they wish to use. This is great for me because it means I’ll get to participate on more days than I would otherwise. I don’t always get to break out the paints. Neither do I always have the time to devote to a detailed pencil sketch.
So the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I didn’t have to do a traditional skyline and since when did I prefer traditional in most of my work or life choices? Not for many years now!
Here’s my contribution to the fb group for today’s challenge: “Skyline.”
I know the art challenge theme was singular but I chose to display multiple “skylines” in my interpretation of the theme. I used my cell to snap the shot and Pixlr Express to edit it. Clicking on the photo will take you to my deviantART gallery where you can view the photo, download a copy, or purchase a print, if you so choose! 🙂
This is not the first photo of ‘skylines’ I snapped. I also got the one below and I had a really hard time choosing between the two. John helped me choose the above photo for the challenge. So this one remains a second. Which one do you prefer? Feel free to leave a comment.
Second option for the ‘skyline’ challenge… I used my cell to snap the shot and Pixlr Express to edit it. If you click on the photo, it will take you to my deviantART gallery where you can view the photo, download a copy, or buy a print. Oh! And please don’t be confused by the different title on this photo. It’s not really titled at all. I just snapped this shot first, so I labeled it as such when I uploaded it to deviantART.
