Weekend Art Challenge – Green!

Welcome to the results of the latest art challenge where we set out students the task of creating a painting or coloured drawing using only greens. We had some amazing feedback about this challenge on our facebook group. Green seems to be the favourite colour of a number of our students so this was the perfect challenge!

We have chosen two piece for our featured image today which we love, the first on the left by student Kerrie Muir who said – It’s my favourite colour so loved this. I have been sewing a bit lately and decided to do a design I’d like to see in fabric.

The second image we absolutely adore and thats by Eve Warren. Eve said …Oh the Holly and the Ivy, for they are all just green…. ok I know it’s only August!

We might just save Eve’s piece to include in our Christmas countdown!

We hope that all of our students have enjoyed this weeks green challenge and we also hope that our readers enjoy viewing the artwork too. Well done to everyone!

We hope that everyone enjoyed this challenge. Stay tuned for a new Weekend Art Challenge posted here tomorrow.

A small collage with hooker’s green and May green and a mixture of both with green earth. And of course, as a small contrast, cadmium orange for the sun. Watercolor and watercolor pencils.

Green Tomatoes – I grew my own this year! They turned a beautiful red shade, but before they got there they were this lovely green. It’s not a colour I work with a lot so it was a challenge. I haven’t worked with acrylics much lately so it was also a challenge to mix the colours! 3.5×4.5 inches Golden Acrylics.

Weekend Challenge. The colour green, as an illustration. I’m a word-lover. Contained in this monochrome cast of characters are half a dozen figures of speech. Do you recognise them? Hope so!

Had a bit of a disaster with the horizon line, the paper came away with the tape when I removed it 😣 So the line isn’t as straight as it should be 🙈 But I really enjoyed painting it because green is my favourite colour 💚

Shades of green! Detail from a large mural I painted last week in Santa Fe, NM USA. This is the maiden archetype, symbolizing youth, Spring, new life, fresh possibilities. The mural is acrylic on a large wooden fence.

As I moved cross country to the 140yr house finally I have found a lil time to create for the art challenges. Here are two watercolours I made in a mad dash often reflecting upon our current era…in all its beauty and confusion..[Where do we go from here]…Same is applicable in the nature-scape, as the main tree is dead, yet all around is really thriving.
