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.

I feel it is a natural progression from last week’s prompt of black and white. They can be simple or complex but are always striking thanks to the more defined play they create between negative and positive space. This week’s challenge is to incorporate a silhouette into your image, whether it be the sole focus or something more subtle.

Black and White

Having missed last week’s prompt I decided that catching up I would use two prompts that could be used together in one prompt or individually. Black and white, two colours that are often thought of as non-colours, one being the culmination of all colour and the other the absence of all colour. Experiment with them singularly in two separate prompts or together in one prompt for some interesting contrasts.

This week’s challenge is a little more specific; a still life with a difference. In art we look and absorb imagery to create. When we draw something we take time with an object and try to create an image that represents it in our chosen media. When we get really familiar with something it is easier for our imagination to take over and for us to draw from what is solely in our head than what is placed in front of us.

So for this week, pick an object you have never drawn before, it could be something you have lying around your house, a fruit or vegetable, anything really. Spend a minute really looking at your chosen subject then cover it up and draw it from memory alone. Feel free to take a picture of what you have chosen to draw to post alongside your image if you like.

They say that if you find a white feather it’s a sign from the angels that your guardian is close by and looking out for you. It’s a nice thought though I tend not to believe so heavily in it since moving to a seaside town where I would often wake up to huge mountains of feathers in my driveway from seagulls that had had run ins with cats or foxes. Still I like the sentiment and I have been finding a lot of different feathers lately. They are, in my opinion, so beautiful and delicate in all their shapes, sizes and colours.

This week’s challenge is to create an image of one or more feathers.

21. Landscape

From landmark to the broader topic of landscape, whether it be the orientation or subject matter.
There is such a huge variation of beautiful and inspiring places all around us. Pick one that inspires you and use it to create an image.

22. Portrait

Time to turn that page around and look at portrait, whether in orientation, subject matter or both.
Whether it be someone you know, a self portrait or an image of a fictional character, create a portrait of the subject of your choice in the style of your choice

Natural or man-made landmarks tell us where we are and often have a significance behind them; a story, legend or reason for being.

This week’s challenge is to pick a landmark that means something to you and create an image of or inspired by your choice.
