December Art Challenges

December Art Challenges

Because December isn't busy at all (sarcasm) I found myself wanting to take on two (2!) art challenges this month. This one is for the Bad Apple Artist Collective 12 Day Drawing challenge. You know how there's one group that for you would be your Holy Grail? Well, for me it's this collective. The art is amazing! They don't take submissions, so it's just a pipe dream to be one (kind of like when you realize you'll never be one of the in crowd in high school? Ha!) but this challenge is forcing me to produce better work! Win-win!

Day 1 Challenge was "wreath" and I came up with "Natalia."

"Natalia" by Jaime Leigh. Watercolor, marker & ink on 5.5 by 8.5 paper.

Day 2 was "Candy Cane," and I did this little number. The concept in my head was better than my execution (in my opinion) but I'm okay with the outcome.

Today is December 3 and the prompt is "Starry Night." Since it's Saturday, I was able to do a bit more, so I have a Musical.ly and a YouTube video of the creation of the painting.

Here is the video:

And, of course, here is the finished painting:

I will have several more to post since I plan on doing all 12 days, so stay tuned!
