an elusive NaF challenge!!!
'ello, @naf! hope your summer has been going well.
having not done a challenge for a month has laid all my old banked ideas to waste, so it was a bit of a struggle to come up with something this time. while I am going a little more “classic/old school” with this month’s prompt, I think you’ll enjoy it all the more for its simplicity.
a simple, three-color challenge, themed “summer moments.” this challenge should teach you a lot about color theory and usage, and the limitations (say, you get some dismal looking colors and still have to make it look summer-y) will test your aesthetics and ability to improvise.
for sodium artists like me, you can either lay out and/or number all of your colors (individual colored pencils if you use those, individual copics/markers/crayons, etc. (but not all, of course; only the mediums you plan on using)) and use a random number generator to pick each utensil, or you can use the hex color picker and try to find utensils that match.
using slightly different hues for shading is allowed but not mandatory; try to do as much as you can with the three colors you have.
white, black, and grey are also permitted but not obligatory; again, if you’d like to add one or more of them to your three colors be my guest, but try to keep it simple.
since it’s summer and everyone’s on vacations, at camps, etc. it’s totally okay to submit a rough or under-done copy of your entry. the challenge lends itself to a more unfinished, simplistic look anyway, but again, if you’re willing to go all out, do it!!
as always, don’t feel bad if you’re unable or unwilling to do any of NaF’s challenges. they’re here purely for fun, and are never mandatory or even strongly advised. I’ll be accepting members’ choice nominations until July 28th, and I’ll try to get the winners out by July 30-31st. knowing me, it’ll be later than that, but you can expect those dates at the earliest.
have a great summer y’all, and happy art!!
