Memories of the Alhambra

New Theme: Medieval



The Western theme was a huge success so we've decided to do another historical theme for March.
We have decided upon.....

 "Medieval"

Submit your castles/cathedrals, sirs/serfs, maidens/monarchs and anything else remotely medieval by the 29th March to be in with a chance of winning a prize. As always the theme is up for interpretation; magic and sci-fi elements are welcome.

Winner : Wild West


Howdy Boulderites,

The votes are in! And it was a pretty close call but  the winner for February's 'Wild West' theme, by just a few votes, is Damien Colboc! Well done Damien! A prize will be on it's way to you. If your interested in seeing more of Damien's work you can view his tumblr page here:  https://damiencolboc.tumblr.com/

 Joint second place goes to Antonio Gimenez and Marc Perez (for War Painting). Well done guys! 

Before we all go riding off into the sunset, I just want to thank all the artists for this months blog. It was our biggest ever and the quality, as always, was fantastic. Thanks to everyone who voted too. We had another huge turn out.

Fella on his Horse, Annie Oakley and Cup of Tea, Anyone?

The lady in this is taken from reference.  I don't THINK this image would ever have popped in to my head naturally.

Some time in the 1800s this handsome gal thought this would be a good photo idea and I salute her for it. 

(Also, if you don't know that cowboy saying about getting off horses and drinking milk, then this will seem MENTAL.  I'm telling you, this image is all completely based in fact.) 




Annie Oakley was a proper bad ass sharpshooter of the late 1800's who traveled fairs as an exhibition shooter and taught the gals of the wild west how to handle a fire arm and defend themselves.  Brutal times.

She offered her shooting skillz and to lead female sharpshooters in World War 1, but when she had no response she visited army camps, raised money for the Red Cross and volunteered with military charities instead.

Whatta gal.
