September Monthly Challenge - All are Welcome!

Hello,

Welcome to the September Monthly Challenge! We invite you to participate in these challenges, all mediums and skill levels are welcome. Use the reference images below to inspire your artwork any way you wish. Crop them, combine them, change up compositions, or paint them as they are. Please comment on one another's artwork, but don't give any harsh critique unless it's requested by the artist. I hope you'll join the fun! Happy creating!

These photos are all my own.

I believe this is an alpaca - could be a llama. I'm not sure. Photo taken at a zoo.


A stormy-looking sunset sky over our silos.

Have fun!

Re: September Monthly Challenge - All are Welcome!

So happy to see so many! I look forward to seeing what everyone shares this month. Maybe I'll finally have a bit of time to do some drawing too.

Re: September Monthly Challenge - All are Welcome!

With so many WC challenges each month I figured I'd get an early start and begin in this forum first. Who could resist the sweet little pansy Here it is in watercolor 7.5 x 5 done this afternoon, on Canson 140 lb cold press paper:



The rest of you hurry up as it is a short month

Re: September Monthly Challenge - All are Welcome!

Kay, oh such a lovely pansy. You inspire me to try watercolors again.

Christel, beautiful. Your color is right on.

Re: September Monthly Challenge - All are Welcome!

Kay, your pansy looks wonderful! I love the violet hues in the background because they make the flower really pop. Excellent painting, and a great way to kick off the challenge!

Christel, I love your colorful daisies! You've really achieved the soft texture of the flower petals. Beautiful work!
