Weekend Art Challenge – Letter H

Welcome to the results of our latest weekend art challenge. This week we asked our students to come up with a piece of art on a subject or object beginning with the letter H.

Our feature image today is by Sarah Hogan who has illustrated her piece using a Wacom tablet and software called GMP. It’s called ‘Hide and Seek’. An incredible achievement, well done Sarah for a beautiful illustration.

We equally love Sally Studley’s Heart Balloons and Kerrie Muir’s Hippopotamus too. There were a number of horses and humming birds and of course Hedgehogs, plenty of things to choose from this month with the letter H. Everyone did a marvellous job as per usual! It wont be long and there will be another letter challenge, however tomorrow is something a little different!

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

“Once there were dragons…”
May I present: Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III and his girlfriend Astrid Hofferson, the heroes of the “How to Train your Dragon“- books  and the DreamWorks animated movie. I loved the books and the movie and drew two of my favorite characters with pencil and colored pencils. Amelie

As a fan of History and Hampton Court, I simply had to paint Henry VIII. The painting was created using Gimp and is a pop art triptych version of Hans Holbein the younger’s portrait.

Sunset over Lake Huron
We are blessed to live in a part of the world with magnificent sunsets, and it is a joy to visit the Lake at this time of day. Huron is the second largest of the Great Lakes. I used Beam paints which are watercolour and made by an Indigenous business on Manitoulin Island, Ontario. They use all natural products such as tree sap and wild honey.

H is for Hare 🐰 watercolour with pen and ink.
Lowri Tolman
H is for hummingbird. It’s a very mixed use of different mediums. I’ve used children’s paints, dry watercolour pencils, paper flowers, metal ornamental pieces, stickers and a google eye. It’s a crazy mixture but it seems to all work together with this collage.

I’m a little bit obsessed with hares. I have done art work of them in very different styles. I used reference photos by Sue Cross.
