Welcome to this weeks art challenge results from the theme ‘Summer’! This theme has generated some amazing pieces of artwork, our students have been very creative in expressing what summer means to them.

Our featured image today is by Pet Portrait Diploma student Dora Birgis and it is a photograph taken of a bumble bee on a flower. It is simply beautiful!

We would also like to welcome our new students to the challenges who have submitted this week, we have a few who have emailed and posted their artwork on our Facebook Group for this challenge. We hope that you have enjoyed it – there is always something new to create each week, a great platform to learn along with your peers.

The new challenge will be on it’s way soon. Something very creative to get the imagination running wild! Stay tuned!!

I’d like to send you my picture “summer”. I had very much fun by the imagination, how flys would prefer a perfect summer day.

For me summer equals water and lots of opportunities to spend time on the boat, skuba diving or simply snorkelling.
I painted me and my husband chasing turtles (we’ve seen till now sharks, dolphins, seals, lots of marine life but not turtles).

Whenever I think of summer the first thing comes in my mind is Mangoes. During summer in India, a time rife with the intense heat and the blissful aroma of mangoes looping through the corners of possibly every household across the country. And I just love it.
