Weekend Art Challenge – Abstract Nature

Welcome to the results of the first weekend art challenge of the year. A massive thank you to each and every one of you who took part! We couldn’t be more delighted with the beautiful abstract artworks you’ve created.

This week, we want to give a special shout-out to Catharine Thompson, whose artwork we have chosen as our featured image. Catharine’s piece stood out for its unique interpretation of nature’s elements. We absolutely love her choice of a limited colour palette, the skilful wet-in-wet washes, and the thoughtful design elements incorporated into the painting. We are thrilled to feature it as our highlight this week.

We hope you enjoyed this challenge. Stay tuned, as another exciting art challenge awaits you tomorrow! We can’t wait to see what new artwork you will come up with!

Here is my second and final piece for the challenge. It is a mixed media collage based on a photo that my daughter sent me when she went to Kew Gardens!! I have added the daisy to the centre, to show that you don’t have to be an exotic plant to shine like a star!!!!

Here is my piece for this weekend’s challenge. It is watercolour collage – based on some woods near my home. I painted the background with splashes of watercolour and also painted other paper in browns and greens for the trees, background and foreground which I tore to shape and stuck on – the leaves are pure collage.
