Weekly Prompts to Fuel Your Creative Fire
To keep things exciting and fresh, we've curated weekly prompts that will spark your artistic imagination:
Week 1: Quick Sketching
Kickstart the challenge with quick sketches. Warm up your drawing hand and portrait muscles. Capture the essence of your subject, practice your gesture or draw from timed poses. The first week is all about letting your creativity and mind flow.
Week 2: Structure and Anatomy
Delve deeper into portrait drawing with a focus on structure and anatomy. Refine your understanding of form and proportion, elevating your artwork and head drawing skills to new heights.
Week 3: Light and Shadow
Explore the captivating interplay of light and shadow. Master the art of shading and learn how to breathe life into your drawings with dramatic lighting and shading techniques.
Week 4: Color Sketching and Painting
Conclude the challenge by infusing a burst of color into your art. Experiment with your favorite color mediums or try something new. Practice your values with tonal sketching, monochrome painting or go full Sargent and create your next color masterpieces.
