Light and Dark

You may be thinking that this double set of prompts is a bit too similar to the last few ( black/white and silhouette), you would be right but bear with me. The challenge with these two prompts for weeks 28 and 29 is to experiment with them without using black, white and silhouettes whether it be in single explorations of light and dark separately or in a single image together.

Love it or hate it there is something really amazing to me about the act of making images solely out of dots whether it be in colour or black and white. I’m in awe of people that create such amazing art with this technique, both in art history and modern artists. I think what amazes me most is how you generally don’t realise the image is made up of tiny dots until you get closer and see it for yourself.

This week’s challenge is to create an image inspired by pointillism.

I was moving house last week and didn’t have a chance to post the week 12 prompt. Truth be told I forgot, so this week is a double whammy; last week’s prompt and this week’s in one post. Enjoy!

Week 12: Cardboard box

Granted, it’s an odd one this week but in light of my move and the fact I am living surrounded by boxes as I settle in and unpack I thought this would be an interesting one.
It is such a mundane and plain item but one that children and animals alike find so much creative inspiration from.

This week’s challenge is to create an image that includes a cardboard box in it in some way. What, if anything that box becomes in your image is up to you.

Week 13: Pop Art

I’m not sure why but of all the different ‘genres’ and styles of art I feel that Pop Art often gets lets recognition than it deserves. Perhaps it is because of it’s bright colours and seeming simplicity but it is a style in which there is a lot of fun to be had. I thought it would be interesting to look at some different types of art and try bringing them into my own practice through the art challenge. If you are not familiar with the style then do take a moment to look it up online and get a feel for it.

This week’s challenge is to create an image inspired by Pop Art.

Are you looking out or looking in? What do you see? Something to enjoy or fear? Perhaps someone or something looking back at you?

Windows are interesting, just the perspective of whether or not a viewer is inside looking out or outside looking in says a lot in an image. They don’t even have to be a traditional window; some people say that the eyes are the window to the soul. What kind of window appeals to you and where does it take you?

This week’s prompt is to create an image on the topic of windows whatever that means to you. It doesn’t have to be profound, if nothing else take a look outside your closest window and record what you see.

The challenge this week is to create an image using something that is new or unfamiliar to you whether it be a different medium, technique, style, colour etc. The choice is yours. The idea is to push yourself into trying something out, even if it doesn’t turn out quite how you expect it to, let it be and learn from it.

Hearts And Flowers

As I’m sure everyone knows it is Valentine’s Day so I thought it could be fun to play around with hearts and flowers. A friend of mine once told me that someone said to her that real art doesn’t have hearts and flowers in it. I think that it is a real shame that there are people that feel that way. I prefer the words of Andy Warhol, that “Art is anything you can get away with.”

Week 4: Money

Last week I had to do my self assessment for my taxes which it mean that money was on my mind. I don’t particularly like thinking about money, I know it’s a necessary thing, something that we all need but unfortunately in society it has become this measure of success that I really dislike. There is this troubling trend where people measure the worth of their creativity by how much, or indeed how little, money they make.

This week’s challenge is to create an image of/about/including money in some form.
