A&I Lockdown Drawing Challenge: Portraits

Artists & Illustrators Magazine in the UK is running a weekly Lockdown Drawing Challenge.
This one does not bring money prizes, nor does it get your work shown on television.


Lockdown Drawing Challenge - Week 2: Portraits

This week's Lockdown Drawing Challenge relates to Portraits.
why not draw a member of your household from life, and if they won't sit for you, try drawing them while they watch TV or cook dinner.
  • Submit it using the form on the Challenge page (link above)
  • By 12 noon on Thursday 21 May. 
The A&I Team then select a a gallery of favourite works which are displayed in the A&I Lockdown Drawing Challenge Gallery.

The winner will be revealed on Friday 22 May, when we will also announce the theme for week three’s Lockdown Drawing Challenge.

Lockdown Drawing Challenge - Week 1: The Kitchen

Our first week’s theme is the ‘kitchen’, so why not sketch your family cooking together or raid the cupboards for still life inspiration?
I agree - it's a stand-out work based on observation with a commentary! Looks to me as it was either drawn on a digital tablet or was drawn in pen and ink and had hints of digital colour added later. Either way it's very effective.

The winner of each challenge receives
  • a Faber-Castel sketching set worth £18, 
  • a three-month subscription to Portfolio Plus 
  • gets their work shared across our popular social media feeds and on the Artists & Illustrators website. (This is called "marketing" folks!)
