Weekend Challenge – Exotic Birds Artwork

We are speechless! WOW! What an incredible amount of entries for this weeks Art Challenge. It was based on the brief of Exotic birds and we found the students a few copyright free photos to get started. Alternatively they could find their own or use their inspiration to make their own creations.

There are so many wonderful drawings and paintings here, keep on scrolling and enjoy them!!

Stay tuned for the next challenge – which is a big challenge taking up the whole month of December. Intrigued? Stay tuned!!

My idea was to block in the basic colours in marker, then accurately draw the bird in fountain pen over the top. But I made some errors and decided to just exaggerate my errors.
Also my greys have totally dried out! But I’m pleased with the result
