Okay, let's try something fun! Here's the deal, I'm currently prepping for my first adult painting workshop next month and as I'm creating visual resources for the class, the idea strikes me... I should share some of these reference photos with my artist buddies out there!
Use this reference photo below and if my sketch or the B/W photo are helpful, use those too! Create a painting based on this image below, Apples & Knife. [You have the rights to this image, so if you end up with something you want to sell...go for it!] Basically it's stemming from my love of Show-and-Tell (I never outgrew that kindergarten ritual) and I just love seeing how different artists' styles come out even when using the same starting point. Use any art materials you like!
Below is a submission form where you can share a photo* of your finished project. You can choose to remain anonymous or I can tag you on Facebook and Instagram if you like. (I believe I can only tag business pages on FB and not personal accounts, FYI). The deadline for submission is June 15th.I'll then create and post a Show-and-Tell type of post showcasing all of our pieces! This is just for fun, no prizes or anything, just a fun way to connect with other artists and to have a challenge to do together. All ages welcome!
If you create a post doing this challenge, you can use this hashtag #paintwithjg or also invite others to join by sharing this link. Can't wait to see what you make!
*Know that I might enhance or put a filter on the image you share with me. :)
We'll see how this goes...and Maybe we can make it a regular thing! Now go get painting!!!!
