Weekend Art Challenge – Marine Life

Welcome to our weekend challenge all about Marine Life. WOW! What an amazing array of paintings and drawings we have received from our students this week. We are stunned by the quality of every single piece. They are all so varied, each and every one completely different from the next.

A special shoutout to Barbara Schunk who combined paint brushes with marine life – a very ingenious idea. Also the feature painting this week by student Kirsi Salo.

We hope that you enjoy viewing all of the work below. If you missed out on this challenge, do give it a go. This is what student Rose-Marie said to us this week in an email and we were absolutely thrilled to hear it…….

….”I love the weekend challenges. Every Friday is a lucky day which allows to be creative! And LAC such a good art academy. Thank you!”

Stay tuned for tomorrows challenge!!

My husband and I used to dive a lot and his passion was underwater photography. One of his photos inspired this of a Lionfish done in pastels on mount board.

In this order, I’ve done an octopus in pencil, ink (transformed her in a ballerina) and then a light watercolour wash/pencil similar to an exercise in the course. I thoroughly enjoyed this and I must say I wouldn’t have done this if it wasn’t for the challenge! I am thoroughly enjoying this!

In this weekend challenge I choose jellyfish as the theme of my drawing. The Jellyfish is moving is slight and gently, just like the pace of time and light. So I combined these three things together. I draw it by ball-point pen and color pen.
It’s out, folks. ‘Marine Life: The Collage’, a frothy Fantasy which looked good on paper… but its cast clearly isn’t cut out for an Epic.

I’ve used watercolour pencils for my drawing of a seahorse in it’s surroundings.

Perfectly for the weekend challenge I have been working on this painting of the Kraken.

My marine challenge – “Curious Fish Exploring The Reef”. This is the first time I partially drew and entirely coloured a big tropical fish using the Wacom tablet and Intuos pen. It was quite challenging because the surface of the tablet is slippery. I made several mistakes. So I had to re-draw parts of fish’s contour and recolour its coloured parts several times. I still need to figure out how to digitally draw and paint reef more realistically.
