Monthly Art Prompts - November 2023


Well-known member
Create some art that is inspired by any of this month's prompts. Let your imagination soar. Turn on your creative juices.

All media and styles are welcome (drawing, painting, digital, photography, sculpture, multi-media, representational, abstract, etc.). It can be something done quickly, a finished work of art or anything in between. It can be created from your imagination, from life or a photo reference. If you use a photo reference, please make sure it has no applicable copyright restrictions.

Here are the prompts for November. Have fun interpreting them.


Post your finished (or unfinished) art in this thread. Post any time during the month, as many times as you would like.
Tell us a little about the work if you so desire. For example, you could include the medium you used, where you got your inspiration or how long it took. When you post, it's always nice to "like" or comment on posts made earlier in the thread by other artists. We all like acknowledgement of our work!

If you have copyright-free images that go along with the prompts that you would like to share, you can post them in this thread for others to use.

If you would like to provide prompts for a month, sign up here.

Joe, excellent birds. The first one especially has an excellent tilt of head and expression.

I am going on holiday shortly, but may to try to do something later this month.
Nice birds Joe. Thanks for starting things off this month.

Joy, have a nice holiday. Take lots of pictures!
Nice crow Zen. Glad to have you participate. Looks as if he is enjoying the sun.

This one is a double-whammy. Holiday (Halloween Pumpkin) and Fall (leaves).

I started with a freehand graphite sketch, added ink then watercolor.

About 5"x6" in XL Mix Media sketchbook.
Anne, especially love the leaves, most of which have taken their "leave" here!

Anne - love the cardinal, but the pumpkins are a winner as-well.
Zen - crow is phenomenal .. the media you used for the piece surprisingly worked.
Joe - nice pigeon, I dig the technique.
Anne, perfect posture! This looks like the ones we have here. Beautiful!
