OK, I've thought about it. Yes, we have had the subject before, but it's a while back so here we go - there's always the possibility that a fresh approach to the subject will spring to mind.

Paint, painting and anything related: nice blobs of paint, painted objects, paintings, peeling paint, painting something, well you know the sort of things. Needless to say that unlike the last challenge eating the subject afterwards is not recommended - although I suppose it could be something like a cake painted with food-colouring. Oh, I just thought of another idea of what could be painted, but we'll see what turns up...

I'll attempt to produce an example ASAP - don't think I have one 'in my files.'

Rules:

1.The challenge is just for fun.
2. YOUR IMAGE MUST BE TAKEN AFTER THE THEME IS ANNOUNCED.
3. The image must be uploaded in a comment in this thread by 8pm (UK time) on the following Sunday
4. Only one upload per member
5. The person who hosts is the judge for that week's challenge and the judge’s decision is final
6. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week
7. Photos in the thread, no links.
8. For new participants - if you win, you will have to set and judge the next week's challenge.
9. Family oriented photos only.

i guess anybody who didn't have any wallpaper for the last B&W Challenge theme doesn't have an excuse for this Sunday. Smile

Funnily enough, Eddie, I'm up to my elbows in paint this week, redecorating. And yes, I know, the paint should be on the ceiling and walls, not on me....

You should have seen me on the one and only time I tried plastering a wall. 🤣🤣

Say, did you hear about the decorator who had an accident and tipped a whole tin of paint over himself?


He got so upset that he felt really emulsional!!

This and the b&w challenge were easy choices this week as I have been decorating, so able to use the same raw materials for both challenges.Smile
This is an artists brush, a mere 0.5cm wide which I used for tidying up small imperfections after using the roller and larger brushes.
