Limited Palette Challenge – 9 Devine Goddess

Trusting in the divine guidance of my higher power, I surrender my worries and fears, knowing that within this sacred connection lies the infinite wisdom and love that will guide me towards my true purpose and ultimate fulfillment.

This piece today, my final drawing of the limited palette challenge I set myself is inspired by my session yesterday with Erena. I’m still deciding if it sits within the “rules” I set myself for the challenge. Only using the 5 colours in the palette. But I am going to give myself a bit of freedom and the space of starting on a black canvas being allowed.

I haven’t really used negative space with my art before. The thought kind of scares me. Because I’m never really sure what details to use, and which to disregard. I think I’ve done it justice.

Negative space in art refers to the empty or unoccupied areas surrounding the main subject or objects, and it plays a crucial role in creating balance, depth, and visual interest within a composition.

Have you liked the limited palette artwork I’ve been creating? I’ve enjoyed creating it immensely. Prints will be available shortly but the digital files are already up on Etsy if you’re a digital file kinda person.

Limited Palette Challenge – 5 Candy Apple

“In the enchanted realm where fairies frolic, the candy apple reigns supreme as the delectable nectar that sustains their ethereal existence, its glossy magenta shell and sugary sweetness imbued with the very essence of magic.”

This one has been by far the hardest colour palette to work with. It took me more than 10 attempts at something, and pushing it back a day to think about. In the end I went with a simple apple. Not very creative by I’m happy with how it turned out.

Limited Palette Challenge – 4 Mystic Falls

The moon’s silver rays danced upon the cascading waterfalls, whispers of ancient secrets echoed through the lush emerald forest, enchanting all who dared to venture near.

Day 4 of the limited palette challenge – Mystic Falls

I had a bit of a block with a different colour palette, I just couldn’t think of anything so this one was made in a bit of a rush. I’m still happy with the result.

Limited Palette Challenge – 6 Red City

Amidst the perilous depths of a city painted red, a path illuminated by defiant green lamps, offered a glimmer of hope and resilience. The darkness, beckoned the brave to navigate through the treacherous urban maze.

I loved creating this one. It may not be the most sophisticated, or the most skilled but I just enjoyed dreaming this one up. It took much longer than I intended to spend on a piece for this challenge. Enjoying the creative process is why I’m doing this mini challenge.

Limited Palette Challenge – 2 Rays of Sunshine

Their golden faces turned towards the sun, dancing in the summer breeze, spreading warmth and joy and life.

Day 2 – Limited Colour Palette Challenge

Another quick painting done in #procreatepocket I’ve used the charcoals only. I wanted it to be simple but bright. Sunflowers have to be one of my most favourite flowers. Again, I’ve used a limited colour palette, just to make things fun.

Digital Art Vs Traditional Art Vs Photography

Purple is my favourite colour. I’ve said so many times, it calms me, makes me smile. The first image is my digital illustration version of a tree I painted when I first started my art art journey in 2017 (if I remember correctly).

Marigolds – my reference photo and then digital illustration of the photo. I used the pastel pencils in Procreate to create this one. I am loving Procreate for many reasons.

It’s a whole lot less messy and I can do it anywhere. I don’t need internet or Wi-Fi. I often run my Apple Pencil flat though.

Follow me on insta to see how I progress with procreate. I am creating some thing special so keep your eyes pealed!

Faces, Figures and Feeling Blue

I’ve been working really hard the last few weeks on my digital art. I’ve done a few tutorials, played around with the features and had some fun with different styles. The ups and downs of recent times have been a bit difficult for me to navigate. My family and my art has helped my cope ok.

Abstract – Feeling Blue – Prints are available

I’m using stamp brushes in procreate. I’ve never been good with faces so using a stencil for now just to get a feel of shapes and shadows has helped a lot. Someday cheating but I say if it looks good, and it’s your idea then go for it. Especially if it’s just to practice!

Lockdown has been a god send for me. Although I do get lost in my art and forget to exercise, and eat.

I have so many more designs and painting I’ve created and I’m excited to share with you. Come back next week to see some more awesome artwork.
