Weekend Art Challenge – Autumn

Welcome to the results of this weekends art challenge. The seasons have definitely changed here in the UK. We have transitioned from a lovely hot summer into a cooler autumn with the leaves beginning to fall. We felt this was a perfect challenge to close the end of September. Students were encouraged to be creative and use any medium they would like, along with any colour pallet so describe what autumn means to them.

Our featured image this week is by student Rosalind Spilling who has painted two falling leaves in Watercolour. Rosalind also painted another leaf which you can see if you scroll down below. Both paintings are superb!

Everyone has submitted beautiful work this week and we hope our students enjoyed the art challenge. We have a very cute one for you coming tomorrow. Keep your eye on our blog to find out more!

This watercolour is more of an imagined autumn at Willie Lott’s Cottage – I will return there when autumn has fully arrived to see how close I am…..

I love autumn, although at the moment where I live we are just entering into spring! I did this little painting in our Autumn earlier this year.

Autumn for me means hearty autumnal meals, with seasonal squash and pumpkins

For this weekend’s challenge I’ve used a stencil. I used autumn colours: orange, yellow, red and brown. I coloured the back in a dark blue as to represent the evening’s drawing in. Dry watercolour pencils were used.
