Weekend Art Challenge – Orange

Welcome to our latest weekend art challenge results. What an absolutely fantastic theme this week. Perfect for autumn – the colour orange! It has produced some amazing results and some very creative ideas from our students.

The featured image this week is bold, bright and right on point! It screams orange and we love it. It is by student Barbara Shunk and is called – ‘Just orange!’

One of our favourite pieces this week is by student Pauline Burke who has created the carrot painting below. Pauline has been doing our challenges without fail from the very beginning. Each week and month that goes by Paulines artwork is becoming more skilled and proficient. It proves that by being creative constantly, stepping outside your comfort zone with different and varied briefs, it can really help you become a well rounded artist. Well done Pauline!

We hope that you enjoy viewing the artwork below. The next challenge is something a little different. Stay tuned!

Some 9 “carat” carrots!  For the weekend challenge 
Love orange such a happy, autumnal, halloweenish colour!

About this week challenge.
I think the light in night flush the home with orange, family member make the room warm .So I took a photo about my boyfriend, when he laid down on the bed with striped quilt by the lamp ,and draw the scene in the abstract way by watercolor. I asked his opinion about the picture when I finish it , He said that it looked like an insect.

Orange : suiboku-ga on rice washi paper with Japanese inks
In Japan Persimmon or Kaki a symbol of Autumn also has meaning of transformation and change, I thought combinations of orange Kaki and golden bamboo would cover perfectly this season and colour.
