Sketching competition winners 2018

Last year Adebanji Alade set six monthly challenges to inspire everyone to practise and improve their sketching skills, accompanied by his top ten tips for each challenge. Here we present the winners, who all win £50 worth of vouchers to spend with GreatArt

Challenge 1: Sketch children

Winner: Janet Scott Sketches of Alex Adebanji writes: ‘It is clear the artist has dedicated herself to the art of observation. Each drawing is full of effort and an attempt to record the little boy’s features. If Janet continues in this way, she will transform into a master sketcher! My only advice is that she should try to use fewer lines and more observation. It's a great sketch page!

Janet Scott writes: ‘Following Adebanji's advice, I started to sketch my three-year-old grandson Alex while he was watching television (top three sketches). He was unaware of what I was doing and kept changing his position, so I had to work quickly. I then sketched Alex as he slept on the back seat of the car (bottom left). When I showed Alex what I had been doing he agreed to pose for two quick sketches (right). I used a Uniball Signo gel pen and a Two Rivers sketchbook. I am going to give my prize to Alex and his five-year-old brother Leo. They have already shown an interest in drawing and I would like to encourage them to get as much pleasure from art as I do.’

About The Artist

Take your drawing and painting to the next level with inspiration, guidance and advice from this month's top contributing artists and tutors. Cover artist, David Parfitt, shares how it's possible to work through a non-productive period to paint your best painting yet. Haidee-Jo Summers invites you to paint everyday, unarranged objects to discover more about design and composition. We also include demonstrations showing how to apply the one-stroke watercolour method, use a variety of techniques to enliven your watercolours, paint silver objects and reflections in acrylics, achieve the texture of rocky landscapes in pastels, use photographs as a memory aid, bring a portrait to life in oils, capture animals' expressions, and much more. Whatever your subject matter or preferred medium, there's something for everyone, and when you've created your best work, enter our 2019 open competition for a chance to see your work exhibited, published in The Artist, and win one of 40 prizes worth over £17,000!
