Weekend Challenge – The 3 colour challenge Artwork!

Welcome to our latest art challenge – the three colour challenge. What a wonderful selection of artwork we have for everyone to see today!! So many different genres all using just three colours. Isn’t it amazing what can be achieved with such a small palette!

If you haven’t taken part in this challenge, or you are worried about showing your work on here, this is definitely a challenge to do at home just for yourself. Give it a go as it really makes you think about the different tonal ranges you need to use and how to create your chosen subject using your limited colours.

I went digital using a photo as reference that I took in the Florence studio last week while I was painting.

This is something that I have been thinking of doing and I thought it would work nicely on the weekend challenge – kind of. This is maybe a 3-4 colour picture…
I only used three pens but there is also the white of the paper.
Aaanyway… the coffee tin is my late granny’s and I brought the coffee plant specifically to grow it there. Though now it is getting so big that it will have to be moved to a bigger pot. I would also like to paint it in oils.

Simone is on a roll… she’s been doing so much thinking that it’s making her brain hurt. And in between, she’s STILL managed to fit in another shoe-shopping trip.

Here is my weekend challenge painting – another attempt at digital illustration. I took a screen shot of it, so you could see my 3 color palette at the bottom. I set up a still life with the pumpkin and a little ceramic bird I have.

Choux! Go away! A creamy cloud in three colours is my ‘4pm Fantasy’. Brush pens in brown and tan plus a Posca Pen in white. Lucky I had blue paper!
