This year's theme is 'Adventures in Time'.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"> Here is a quickly Photo-shopped layout for my first idea which I have since rejected.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"> &nbsp;</p> <div content-type="media" style="width:100%;margin-top:10px;margin-bottom:10px"> <img original-height="700" original-width="692" src="http://static.wix.com/media/a83aa0_43d4d3fcb74e47be93e29a945587870d.jpg" style="display: inline; border: 0px none; width: 692px; height: 700px;" /></div> <p style="text-align: center;"> &nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"> ...still kinda cracks me up, though.

In order to do that, I did a simple &quot;floor plan&quot; of the structure in a &quot;top-down&quot; view. I then used the perspective tool in my graphics program to convert that into an ellipse:</p> <p style="text-align: center;"> &nbsp;</p> <div content-type="media" style="width:100%;margin-top:10px;margin-bottom:10px"> <img original-height="724" original-width="692" src="http://static.wix.com/media/a83aa0_600100bee2b3400cad6ac28a73a271c4.jpg" style="display: inline; border: 0px none; width: 692px; height: 724px;" /></div> <p style="text-align: center;"> &nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"> I printed out the ellipse full size and used it to create this view:</p> <p style="text-align: center;"> &nbsp;</p> <div content-type="media" style="width:100%;margin-top:10px;margin-bottom:10px"> <img original-height="519" original-width="692" src="http://static.wix.com/media/a83aa0_90a6ce51e6e94e118412cb8af8c2dbe2.jpg" style="display: inline; border: 0px none; width: 692px; height: 519px;" /></div> <p style="text-align: center;"> &nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"> I only had to figure out half of it. I transferred down the first half and then---since it is symmetrical---I just flipped the tracing paper and transferred down the other side.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"> &nbsp;</p> <div content-type="media" style="width:100%;margin-top:10px;margin-bottom:10px"> <img original-height="519" original-width="692" src="http://static.wix.com/media/a83aa0_24c5d85710624af1ab557bb91086f210.jpg" style="display: inline; border: 0px none; width: 692px; height: 519px;" /></div> <p style="text-align: center;"> &nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"> It was right about this time that I discovered a free pdf copy of the book online. I downloaded that and found this image. If I had had this earlier it would have saved me a lot of trouble.

I didn't want it to end up looking too pink. Red is a tricky colour to work with and this was done on Bristol board; not the most ideal surface for watercolour.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"> &nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"> Charles is happy with it and that's what really counts.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"> &nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"> &nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"> &nbsp;</p> Mon, 23 Feb 2015 13:49:25 GMT 32444edf-d41a-4d3e-a07d-9fce64fbb64a Hey!
