SUMMER CHALLENGE

#retoveranora24

Welcome to the CHALLENGE!

On June 20, summer officially began, although in Murcia and in many places it has already been going on for more than a month... But we are getting closer and closer to the long-awaited vacations.

After so much hustle and bustle, you finally have that moment to pick up the brushes that you have abandoned at the end of the table and start creating.

But

What do we paint?

This is where this challenge comes into action.

I present to you the 15 watercolors that will accompany you these two months. Because? Well, it's very simple, the fundamental thing is experience. A cliché I know, but I propose these 15 works in a special way:

Outdoor

You read me correctly, without photos, from nature

This way you have the opportunity to accompany me and a large number of artists in their process and evolve your watercolor technique drastically. In the end, the street is the best school and the holidays will lead you to discover or rediscover new spaces and stories that you will have the opportunity to capture in your art.

And it is not only personal satisfaction, which is the greatest objective of the project, that it will offer you:

  • It is the visibility and dissemination of great artists
  • Meeting new artists and creating a community with your same interests
  • Learn new tricks and teach yours

Oh, and prizes of course, because I want you to have the best experience possible, a world full of artists is a much more interesting world, so:

  • Just by finishing the challenge you are already guaranteed a Prize, 1 free month of subscription to my Patreon, where we learn watercolor step by step, tricks and have initiatives as cool as this one.
  • The first 3 to finish it will win a prize!
