Up Your Game with Painting Challenges!

As I mentioned on our Art Chats, I was thinking of pulling together a free course lesson on color.  Instead what I thought I would do is start a bi-weekly challenge for our members here.  This is similar to the AMO Painting Challenges we use to do.  I encourage you to do these challenges and share your results.  I believe you can post your painting in the comments area below.  If not, someone let me know and I’ll set up a page or something where you can share your work.  Of course, feel free to share via social media and talk about the challenges you are working on to help spread the word.  I would appreciate not sharing the challenges as these are prepared just for our paying members.

The intent is for you to up your game when it comes to painting.  I’ll post a challenge twice a month.  probably the 2nd and 4th week of the month.  You have two weeks to complete the challenge and tell us how you think you did, what you liked and didn’t like.  Everything is fair game, so hold onto your hat!

Here’s a sampling of the first challenge.  These are created for the members of Artistic Harmonies.  We hope that you will join us–the membership costs is quite reasonable.  You can join as a blog reader for $2.00 a month or $20.00 for the year.  Click here to join us!

Remember, we’ll be selecting one winner of this challenge!

First up is color.  For me, to really understand color, it meant I had to understand value.  After that, a limited palette, where I had to mix the colors myself, made me understand color harmony.  With a limited palette, color harmony is built into the painting during your mixing process.  You also can control your values better.  So, here’s the first challenge:  (hint the first two challenges deal with color…)

Mixing Up Our Colors Part 1

We are going to work from a limited palette.  You get to choose your subject–paint plein air or from a photograph, or even a sketch you made.  Here are the limited palettes you get to choose from:

Hope to see you there!  (Remember, you can join us here…)

    I want to thank you for your interviews, I found your podcasts last summer, and have followed you ever since.

    There is a quietness and respectfulness in your interview style which makes it very easy to concentrate and absorb the information in the interview.

    I am hoping you will have followup interviews with many of the people, I just listened to Quang Ho, he and David Leffel, Sherrie McGraw, Jeff Watts, CW Mundy, Kevin McPhearson…very good. The way David, Sherrie, Jeff and Quang were able to impart information in such a short time, was amazing.

    Keep up the good work.
    Thank you again.

      Dear Marsha,
      Thank you so much for you wonderful comments and for following the show. I appreciate your compliments very much. I’m also very honored that these wonderful master artists have been so giving and willing to do the show. Their generosity and artists like you who listen keep us doing what we’re doing. In this internet age it is hard to know how folks are feeling about what you are doing–except for the numbers of listeners that keep returning to listen, so I’m very happy to hear that you are finding them so useful. We’ve got some great shows scheduled in the coming months and we do plan to follow up with a number of artists to have them on the show again.

      It truly is my pleasure and honor to do the show.
      Thank you again.

  2. I recently found your wonderful art Chat’s channel. You had mentioned an interview with Sherry Mcgraw and David Leffel regarding edges and although I have looked, I have been unable to find this particular interview. I was wondering if it took place and if not, do you plan on maybe conducting this interview in the future? Thank you!

  3. Thank you so much Linda! I really enjoy listening to your show, they are so informative!
