Weekend Art Challenge – Letter C

Welcome to our weekend challenge results from the Alphabet Letter C Challenge. What a challenge! We have received a phenomenal amount of pieces of artwork and we really hope that you enjoy viewing them all below.

Our feature images this week is an oil painting by Leonard, who painted a selection of chestnuts which he picked up on a walk last autumn. The painting is called – “Going, going, going, going Gone!”. Read more about his painting and see it in detail at the bottom of our post.

Leonard wasn’t the only oil painter this week as among many beautiful paintings, Lisa Elm painted some fantastic chillies and Gelise painted the most expressive cloud painting. Superb.

There are so many wonderful ideas here including Mila’s ‘Coffee Cat’ painted in coffee and Sarah’s wonderful illustration using coffee as hair. Also an amazing painting by Latha who has depicted everything beginning with the letter C that you could have on a breakfast table. Ingenuous. View it below.

Overall this challenge couldn’t have been any better. We have a new challenge tomorrow, so stay tuned one and all!

A scrumptious breakfast: cup of tea, chocolate cookies, croissant, chocolate crepe roll, cranberry jam, cubed sugar, cup cake with cream cheese, coffee, cool drink, cherries, canned strawberries and of course coasters, chair, clouds…..

The cherry and fork are drawn on tracing paper. The cherry is a mixture of red and pink and the fork is a mixture of greys, blues and silver. I’ve used sequins for the cherries and ivory pieces for the icing.

For the ‘C’ theme this weekend. This is a watercolour I did previously – my take on Catherine Parr, Henry VIII’s last Queen. So I’ve called the painting, ‘Survived’ as she outlived him. I painted in her signature which she spelt as ‘Kateryn’, a bit different to how we write the name nowadays. Hope you enjoy!
Sally Watson
C for Cow
Camel…… I did for my assignment piece (animal)…coloured pencil…. I chose camels. They always make u laugh…

Here is my little oil painting of a Collection of Chestnuts that I called “Going, going, going, going Gone!”. Living in a rural environment in central Scotland, we have an abundance of trees of many varieties nearby. It is part of the wonderful natural cycle of things to see them explode into life  in the spring and then fade gracefully in the autumn. These were chestnuts I picked up on a walk last autumn and while we were still able to roam free!
