Weekend Art Challenge – Architectural Wonders

Welcome to our latest weekend art challenge, where we set our students the task of drawing and painting architectural wonders that they admire. Whether it is a building or a street near where they live, or a structure in the world that has always stood out for them. What a lovely collection of artwork we have received!

Our featured image today is by student Latha Bhaduri Prabakar. We love the vibrant colours Latha has used and the composition of the scene. Scroll down to view the painting in it’s entirety at the bottom of the page.

Another of our stand out pieces this week is by student Justin Robinson which you can see below. Justin has created a beautiful scene using soft pastels. We love the thick buttery effect of the pastels, it works so well to portray these buildings, in what could be described as a limited pallet painting.

The varying colours of yellows are superb also. Note where Justin has used a lighter yellow in the far areas of the building and a stronger yellow in varying places in the mid section of the building. This helps to add distance and variation where the light and shadows are hitting. Absolutely superb Justin, well done!

We hope you enjoy viewing our students artwork this week and please do stay tuned. Have a go at the next challenge which will be revealed tomorrow.

Weekend Challenge: Architectural Wonders I found a house that was cat shaped. It’s a very mixed medium piece. I’ve used: children’s paints and chalks, hard pastels and glitter pens.

This is a little village in Austria called Mondsee. These gorgeous colourful buildings are opposite the Church where Maria Married Captain Von Trapp in the sound of music. I took my reference pic on our honeymoon. We don’t really have too many gorgeous buildings in Canada as it’s such a new country so I’m very limited when it comes to doing any Plein Air city scapes etc

This is a favourite painting of mine because of the beautiful colour palette used in water colours.
