Weekend Art Challenge – Egypt

Welcome to this weekends art challenge, all about Egypt. We asked our students to research Egypt and find out about the country, their culture and landscape. We then asked them to create a piece of artwork from what they had learnt along the way. We have received some wonderful paintings and drawings on this subject and have chosen two pieces of artwork for our featured image this week.

We have a beautiful Egyptian cat study by student Lowri Tolman on the right. If you scroll to the bottom of the page you will be able to see it in all its glory. The colours are simply wonderful. The second piece of artwork is a Black Feather Star and coral in the Red Sea by Dinah Barker.

We also have to mention to Norman Tharby’s pallet knife study of the Nile. Stunning colours, the golds and blues work amazingly together. Well done Norman!

We hope you find all of the artwork here inspirational and if you would like to take part in one of our weekend challenges – we would love to hear from you!

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

I was inspired by Egypts rich history and I wanted to make something that represented a mix of ancient and modern.

Egypt. Distant memories of a Suez Canal transit. Fascinating for a very little girl with her mum. Pen and ink wash.
Julie Smalley
Some ancient Egyptian symbols in watercolour and ink pen.
Egypt. For this weekend’s challenge I’ve drawn Anubis. He was an important god who kept evil out of Egypt.
For this challenge I’ve used mixed mediums: acrylic and children’s paint. Metallic gold and silver markers and watercolour pencil for the eye colour. I choose a plain red background to bring out the best of all the colours used.

Dinah Barker
This is an Egyptian cat. In ancient Egypt they worshiped cats, they believed cats were magical creatures, capable of bringing good luck to the people who housed them. Egyptian style, watercolour with pen and ink. Used my favourite gold watercolour paint, which adds a lovely gold shimmer to the cats accessories.
