Weekly Art Challenge


Presenting something for National Art League members and friends, a weekly art challenge. We will supply a new original reference photos each week and you produce a new piece of art based upon it. Your finished work will appear on this page.


We want you to have fun and to challenge your skills. Either copy the photos as close as you wish or change it up to satisfy your own style and approach, whatever you want. Any size and media. This will be a great way to try something new, or give you a project when you don’t know what to paint next, or to break you out of those annoying ruts! There are no deadlines to submit entries any and all entries will be posted regardless of when submitted.


Digital photos (jpegs) of your finished painting should be emailed to Marie Marsina at and will be posted within a few days thereafter. These will not be judged or critiqued so don’t be nervous about submitting your artwork, but you will be able to compare and enjoy how other artists interpret the images. We will post on this page the current weeks Art Challenge and entries along with the prior weeks Challenge photo and entries for your perusal. Click on the thumbnail images to enlarge the painting size and name of the artist.


Images for this weeks Art Challenge are below. As always, you can change the composition, design, lighting, colors and make this your own. Photo Reference from Marie Marsina
