Weekly Art Challenge - Kookaburra

This week's art challenge was to draw a kookaburra. Ben had been commissioned to do a cd cover which funnily enough required a kookaburra design - wise theme selection on Ben's behalf there. To give him credit Ben actually works super long hours 7 days a week for six weeks at a time, so I applaud the few hours he has a night to get art done in (and ring me!)

I think Ben owned this challenge, I actually thought it would be super easy for me but maybe I over thought it! I actually contemplating starting the whole piece over but I kind of lost interest :p

Onto next weeks challenge I say! 

Actually I think we may have hit a slow pace - I haven't even picked next week's theme yet, any ideas people?

And a shot of our stencils in action (from last week's challenge)

  These were taken under our house where there are actually many many stencils - we had fun!

    1. Ah thank-you! Maybe I'm too critical, I think I just lost love for it - set my expectations too high!

  6. Love the art challenges with Ben because you two have very different styles, and we got to see two awesome approaches :) I think that makes too hard to choose one over the other, so I won't (hahhaha, scaredy cat always). And for future challenges what about dinosaurs? Dani however thinks that historic characters converted into zombies is a much better topic ;)
