Weekend Art Challenge – Fireworks

Welcome to our sparkling weekend art challenge results. We have received some spectacular pieces of artwork this week from our theme of Fireworks.

Our featured image this week is by Latha Bhaduri Prabakar who said …”For my family, fireworks reminds us of festival of lights (diwali). It symbolises victory of good over evil. So let us hope we all in this world can overcome this evil virus.”

We love the way Latha has created this bold image with bright colours on a dark background and it really shines out. We also want to give a special mention to Beate’s artwork below, wonderful colours and a beautiful scene!

We hope that you enjoy viewing the dazzling paintings on our blog today and we hope that everyone stays tuned for our new challenge coming tomorrow!

Great subject for this challenge!  I love all firework displays and bonfires too.  I have tried to re create some fireworks images by using coloured pastels on black card, painting over them with black paint, then when dry scratching images with a sharp pen nib to try and get colour through , scratch art!

Nothing more mesmerising than fireworks – but they are certainly challenging to draw- oil pastels

I couldn’t watch the fireworks with my nieces and nephew this weekend so I thought I would draw them instead

I did a real mixed media piece this weekend. I drew the castle and fireworks with water coloured pencils, some glitter to give the sparkle affect. The castle was outlined with a silver pen, some foil card shapes and just for a bit of fun I added some beads.
