Welcome to the results of the weekends art challenge. We challenged our students this week to all look up to the sky and portray what they saw.

We have received a huge number of stunning paintings, drawings, photos and digital artwork via email and posted on our facebook groups page. We are certain that you will be very impressed as you peruse down the page.

This weeks feature image is by new student Ada Toth who recently enrolled on our Illustration Course. We love your artwork, well done Ada!

What a successful art challenge, another we feel that you have all enjoyed after reading your feedback. Justin said.. “these challenges are rad” and we are thrilled to hear it!

Stay tuned, a new challenge coming tomorrow!

I have attached three pictures of my 2 little paintings of sky and clouds (both paintings in acrylics 14 x 11in). The blue sky is of what I saw on Friday afternoon while on my daily walk. The second one is from the picture of the sunset taken when I was in Lanzarote last year (like a dream now).  It was a very pleasant subject to paint hence two paintings.

It was so nice to sit in the sun sketching the sky above and see the clouds, I thought I would include a silver lining on a cloud!

Last summer I spent my holidays on Bornholm Island (Denmark) and sunsets
on the Baltic Sea were so amazing. Turquoise, magenta, purple, orange,
dark blue colours. I took many photos and tried to paint the mood of
these evenings for the week-end challenge.
Watercolor wet in wet.

Sky at night, sunset painted in oil pastel then very generously melded with turps, it was a very quick painting and I really enjoyed doing it.

These are my successful attempts at the challenge of this week. I must congratulate you on this challenge as my practice in this was postponed for a while now, and in my course I am at unit 11 that requires more watercolour so I already started to do some landscapes from other books.

Weekend Challenge. Painting skies is not my forte so I thought I’d share this photo I took last week at our nearby lavender farm because the whole scene wowed me! Sadly you can’t smell it too.

Sky and clouds
Anisha Dilip
A moody sky in graphite. I wasn’t really sure how to approach this one, so I decided to use some pure graphite sticks that have been kicking around in my draw forever! I then just used a blending stump to push the graphite around. Not sure how well it works, but it was fun.

For this picture I used oil pastels. And to get the outline of the clouds the top end of a pencil was used. I choose the original picture because of all the different colours of the clouds. Some of the colours I didn’t expect but I thought looked beautiful.
