Inktober challenge Mon., Oct.11

Hello dear artists,
I hope you had a lovely weekend.

This week we are going to have creative challenges.
We are NOT going to copy rather will get inspired and create something new, from your own imagination. How fun is that!

Today’s inspiration is a Russian folk design called “Khohloma“.

Your home work is to create your own design using elements from the image below. Have fun!

I can’t wait to see what you will create! Please share with us what you will create in my FB GROUP HERE .

Inktober challenge Monday, Oct.4

Hello dear friends!
For today’s challenge we will draw an ear.
I paid attention that many artists avoid to include this part in their portraits, and I think this challenge is a perfect time to practice and get over the fear.
This is not an easy assigment and if you feel like you need to draw first with a pencil – go ahead!

Original reference could be found HERE: (14) Pinterest – give it a like!

I learned a lot from this exercise and I hope you will too!

Please remember that this challenge is not about creating masterpiece, rather to practice and include drawing habbit into your daily routine. Have fun!

Welcome October! Inktober challenge

Hello dear friends!

During the month of October many artists from over the world are participating in Inktober challenge. The idea is to practice art on daily basis for a month with just a pen.

I would like to invite you to join my challenge, it is FREE and I hope you will like the prompts/refernces I selected to work from. You can use a simple office pen or a fancy one, it is totally up to you!

I will be posting 5 prompts per week, we will take breaks on weekends.

Prompt 1: – See original image on (5) Pinteres

I used app called ‘Art Tool‘ to make the grid. It cropped automatically and cut the ear off on the right side, I wish I would pay attention to it before I started to draw.

I used a gel pen on the paper that already has a large grid. I have this paper for years, I think it is THIS ONE.

I was drawing it in the middle of night and was tired, so had patience for a half face only.
You have until Monday to complete this drawing, feel free to draw a full face if you want.
Have fun!

Please share with me what you will create in my FB GROUP HERE or use hashtag #OlgaInktober2021 on Instagram

We will take breaks on weekends. NEXT PROMPT WILL BE POSTED MONDAY, October 4!

Follow this blog to get an email when the next prompt is posted.

Much love,
Olga.

Hello dear friends!
I can’t believe that this year is almost over…It was a challenging year for many of us, but as with everything in life, it was also a year full of beautiful moments!
I selfishly enjoyed that my kids learning from home and I had a chance to visit my parents and spend over a month with them! I had the pleasure of socialising on Facebook and Instagram and watching the progress in art skills and creative practice of our students. I feel so blessed!
I feel a bit bittersweet that this year is coming to the end, BUT I’m also so excited for the upcoming year and I can’t wait to share everything with you about brand new and shiny PYHaS2022!
