Welcome to the results of our latest weekend art challenge. We set students the task of choosing to draw or paint anything that involved warm colours. We were once again delighted with the creativity that our students have shown this week.

We felt our feature image today (above) was very striking. A wonderful style and design depicting the theme of warm colours beautifully. Well done Barbara Schunk!

We would also like to say a warm welcome to Dora Birgis who is on our photography course. Doris has sent in a beautiful photo of a bubble on a flower showing so many warm colours which you can see below. We are always happy to hear from our photography students – if students on other courses would like to send in photos for our challenges, they are welcome to.

Also a special mention to Vera Jaouadi who continued the Panda theme from last week and created a wet in wet wash of warm colours behind her black paper cutout. We love that Vera has bought two weeks of themes together. Well done Vera!

Well done to everyone, some amazing pieces here – you should all be really pleased with yourselves!!!

Stay tuned tomorrow for the next challenge!!

My take on the warm colours – weekend challenge, I finished this actually few weeks ago but it just suited to this challenge so perfectly. I always thought kind of August harvest type warm colours when painting it!

Actually, I don’t know what I am trying to show in this drawing ,maybe just follow the influence of my mind , and try to find the balance between color and shape .
I was always trying to find the cold shape under the warm color this week.

I tried to do some marbling with tester paint pot colours red, yellow and orange! There was a lot of trial and error but was a good experience !

Warm colours! Yay I have actually managed to do a new piece for this, using all those yellow, pink, and orange test posts of house paint I have sitting around. Some dead lilies in my garden (it’s the beginning of winter here in NZ today). It turned out a little different than planned after I accidentally blobbed a blob of bright yellow on to it, then starting daubing it over my carefully drawn lilies, then had to rescue them from the background! I think it turned out a lot more interesting that way, than my rather pedestrian first attempt.

I have just finished this coursework for my painting and drawing diploma, line and wash (water colour). I think it falls mostly into the warm colours category for this week’s challenge.

I don’t know if this is allowed, because I am new to the College and the page, and this is one I completed earlier, but it does satisfy the specification’ warm colours’.
