Week forty-eight

We could not be more appreciative of this incredible community that has formed around creative people passionate about making art every day. With hearts full of gratitude, we are kicking off another Week of Giving!

Over on Instagram, we’ll be giving away Master Bundles Monday through Thursday. Each day we’ll pick two winners. The winners will receive not one, but TWO Master Bundles, so they can give some awesome brushes to a friend or another artist.

You will have new chances to enter the giveaway each day. Follow @bardotbrush to get full details on how to enter.

This is all leading up to something HUGE on Friday…we’re giving away a brand-new iPad!!

Friday November 26 at 10:30 am Pacific Time

We’re back with another LIVE TUTORIAL and we’ll be giving away more Master Bundles, and a brand new iPad!

You must be present during the Live tutorial to win the iPad and we will provide details about how to enter during the Live tutorial session. Please note that the winner must be located within an area where Apple or Amazon can ship an iPad. There are no substitutions.

November's Theme:

sketching from life

Week 48: Sketching from Life pt. 4

As a reminder, our prompts this month are things you’d find in your everyday life. The challenge is to find that item, and draw it as you see it. I recommend sticking to a simple pencil brush, but do what is most comfortable to you. The last day of each week will give you the opportunity to get a bit more creative by taking your favorite sketch from the week and fully finishing it with color!

The Prompts

Week 48 | november 22-28
