Weekend Art Challenge

Welcome to our weekend art challenge results for our Peace and Quiet challenge. We have been very relaxed this week watching all of the lovely peaceful artwork appear on our facebook group and in our inbox. Some very beautiful and creative ideas. We particularly love the feature image this week by student Lynne Bagnal. You can see the full image at the bottom of the page. Lynne said…

My ‘peace and quiet’ for the weekend challenge, started with some mindfulness drawing as that for me is peaceful and quiet. Mindfulness drawing involves closing your eyes, focusing on your breath in and out and letting you pencil hand do it’s thing. I liked the shapes that were created and decided to add a bit of colour to the shapes…

Quiet Repose. I keep being drawn back to this particular subject as so far I have done it as a silk painting and a glass mosaic. I am hoping to do it in fabric too. It is from a  photo I took in Akko while visiting the mosque there, and was struck by the mans stillness and calm. The outlines were traced and then transferred to watercolour paper, size is 4 x 6 inch and I used watercolour paint

Every morning, when it is peaceful and quiet, swallows fly over dipping and diving. It is so relaxing watching them whilst having my morning coffee.

When the entire house and its inhabitants are asleep I stare into the quiet. First all I can see is my own reflection, but then I start discerning myriads of stars and can hear them whisper peace into my heart. @Mila Zinzen, Pastel on coloured paper

Peace and Quite. To create this picture of a flower leaning against some stones with a reflection, I used soft pastels. I’ve used shades of white, grey and black for the stones and the background colour with reflection shades of blue and white.
