Weekend Art Challenge Results – Blue and White

Welcome to our latest weekend art challenge results. This week we asked our students to create any artwork, as long as it was limited to the colours blue and white. As you can see our students have created some absolutely superb pieces below and we are thrilled to be able to showcase them here on our blog.

We very much enjoy the wet in wet watercolours some of our students used, and the use of salt to create texture. We also are extremely impressed with the portraits too. It just shows you can create any kind of drawing or painting using a limited pallet of blue and white, in any subject, and it still feels realistic, solid, three dimensional. Congratulations to everyone who took part this week. Stay tuned for another challenge tomorrow.

Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White, oil paint on board, A4 size. It was a nice reminder that tone is the most important element in a painting, with the liberating restriction of just using one colour!
