Our theme is The Masters. So far, today's challenges have included Master Color Recipes, Starry Night, and Gilded in Gold. Follow along with the full day's challenges over at Nichole's blog, which is where you'll also link up your projects.
Each link list will be open until 7am ET Tuesday, July 26th, so you will have ample time to participate and photograph your projects.
I have the honor of hosting a Starry Night challenge inspired by Vincent van Gogh. You'll find the challenge HERE on Nichole's blog, but I'll also share here:
Vincent van Gogh wrote about the technical challenge of depicting a night sky: "It often seems to me that the night is even more richly colored than the day, colored with the most intense violets, blues and greens.... It's clear to me to paint a starry sky it's not nearly enough to put white spots on blue-black." In this tutorial, we'll apply a range of colors to create a rich and variegated night sky background. We'll begin with ink blending, follow with watercoloring, and finish with acrylic paint. I'll also show you how to create tree silhouettes along a horizon line for an easy way to complete a night scene."
I hope you'll play along! Remember, the link-up is HERE on Nichole's blog!
