Challenge 70 - Butterfly


About the composition

This picture was taken in the Butterfly Conservatory in the Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.
There are thousands of breathtaking butterflies all around the conservatory. They move very fast, and it was a real challenge to capture a good, clear and in focus photograph.

Please use this butterfly and incorporate it into your own composition. Still life, outdoor settings, landscape, anything that speaks to you.

Please send your drawings and paintings before Oct 22, 2017. The next challenge will be posted on Oct 23.

Happy painting and drawing!

Challenge 69 - Rolling Countryside






Thank you very much for your lovely paintings and drawings for our previous challenge.
Many panting and drawing demonstrate long working hours and true dedication for excellence, so common among all PADT artists.

I am sure our visitors had a great pleasure enjoying a wonderful display of your original and creative art.

About the composition

Our challenge this time is a small village in Serbia, surrounded by vast countryside and huge, mature rolling  hills. I certainly cannot be objective, when I say that this is the most beautiful place in the entire world. I was born there. And I did spend the most entertaining years of my childhood climbing tall trees and driving my grandma crazy hiding among the branches 20 miters above the ground.

It did have its own advantages. At such height I was able to clearly see my parents coming home much in advance, and promptly get down to the ground before they enter the gate, pretending that I have always been on a solid ground. I was only 5.

The true reason I chose this picture is that it shows a very nice display of aerial prospective. From the closest fields bathing in golden yellow-green fields to the most far away mountains vanishing into much lighter blue and purple tones. Please try to portray this slow gradation from warm a darker close by areas to the much lighter and bluer far away areas.

Please send your drawings and paintings before Aug 27, 2017. The next challenge will be posted on Aug 28.

Happy painting and drawing!

Challenge 68 - Cat


Warm greetings to all PADT artists.
I would like to sincerely thank you for your overwhelming response to the previous challenge, which clearly showed that there are many animal lovers out there (no surprise). This inspired our new challenge. This time of a beautiful cat.

About the composition

She is a very friendly  young mom with small, adorable kittens. And did not mind posing for me, especially after I shared my lunch (baked chicken) with her.

What spoke to me in this reference was almost absence of any color. This reminded me of how important are value studies in our artistic journey, and how surprising it is to accept that we as artists can mold any form very convincingly without any color. Just by using gray scale values, from pure white to the darkest black.

You might feel like doing a pencil drawing in the tones of gray, or painting in color enhancing the composition with more color and variety. Let your artistic muse guide your inspiration and creativity.

Please send your drawings and paintings before July 02, 2017. The next challenge will be posted on July 03.

Thank you for participating and Happy Painting,
Lela

Nelvia McGrath

Artist:  Nelvia McGrath
Size”   8”x9”
Medium/Support:  Pastel/Paper
Artist Website:  nelviasart.com
Painting Technique:  The background in this piece is very impressionistic, it is one of the things that attracted me to the piece along with the beauty of the dog.  However, I downplayed it so the dog is definitely the star.  The dog itself is done with pastel pencils on sand Ingres paper.  This is a method used by Colin Bradley and I am currently studying and working through his projects.  While we had a Shepherd when I was younger I have never drawn one.  This dog is such a wonderful example of the breed and a stunning model.
