Another Day, Another Challenge

My top design so far has only garnered 20 votes. What am I doing that is not as appealing as those who win? That is my challenge.

This is the original design block. It made me think of “Ghost Riders in the Sky.”

My husband worries that I am loosing my uniqueness in my art by focusing on these challenges. I consider them a means to improve my skills. They are also efforts I can accomplish in little bits and pieces of time. That is all I seem to have these days.

With every digital drawing, I try to use some different techniques, different ProCreate pen tips, different pattern layouts. In Farm Horses in the Clouds, I used a sketching pencil tip to give it a rough edged look. The guidelines indicated that a limited palate was required. Many entries didn’t do that, so they are much more eye-catching than my blue horses.

I made one drawing, then duplicated it in an irregular pattern so when the Spoonflower program did the repeat of the design, the horses weren’t too regularly spaced.

My entry for this wallpaper challenge. What would you like to see on your bathroom wall? You can choose as many as you like, but please select this one as well. Help me beat my 20 vote ceiling. Thanks!!
Voting ends May 26. Please go to Click on Discover, then Design Challenges. I’d appreciate your vote.

Happily retired! Renewing my interests in music and art. Hoping to improve my skills in all creative areas.
