Challenge 63 - Fruit Cake

About the composition

Frequently freelance artists and illustrators are commissioned to create an illustration to be published in a magazine or illustrated book.
In order to approach art directors and ask to be commissioned, artist needs to have already created a representative body of work to show her specific style.

This challenge, and likely many others to come are designed with intention to help aspiring artists create that body of work, simply by painting food or other popular illustration subjects with white background. The background is not needed, since it is anyway after scanning cut out and only main subject  published.

If you are not interested in trying an illustration, please use the photo reference to create your own composition.

Please send your paintings before Oct 23, 2016. The next challenge will be posted on Oct 24.

All the best and Happy Painting.

Challenge 62 - Proud Parents

About the composition

This is a typical scene on the grass areas everywhere in Canada. Wild geese and this time a special treat small geese with their parents. I love them. Any time they decide to cross the road the whole traffic stops, sometimes for 10 min (they do not rush), even during rush hours when people hurry to work or from work. I am so glad they are protected by law and we all have a chance to enjoy their beauty.

Please send your paintings before Sep 05, 2016. The next challenge will be posted on Sep 06

All the best and Happy Painting.

Challenge 61 - Creating a Composition

About the composition

In this challenge I thought it would be fun and exciting to create a custom composition based on given photo references. Quite often artist are expected to create a composition based on multiple sketches from real life enriched by photo references and imagination, and this challenge will be a good exercise.

The ask is to create you own still life composition based on two given photo references and  imagination. Please pay attention where the light is coming from and where the shadows are supposed to be, so that the whole composition looks unified, as if all elements were there in real life.

Of course, if this proves to be too complex, you are welcome to choose either of subjects and paint.

Please send your paintings before July 17, 2016. The next challenge will be posted on July 18th.

All the best and Happy Painting.
