Painting Challenge: Famous Landmark

I just returned from England (thank you Fi Elizabeth!) and saw so many famous landmarks:  Stonehenge, Tower Bridge, Big Ben, and much more.  So, it won’t be a surprise to find out that our challenge this week is to…

Paint a famous landmark.     

Include the topic hashtag in your Watercolor – Beginners and Beyond Facebook group post: #famouslandmark

Deadline September 30, 2022, 11:59 pm ET

As defined by the Oxford University Press, a landmark is a notable object or characteristic of a landscape that allows you to decipher the location.  Landmarks can include historical, cultural, natural and man-made structures.

Here is a small list of famous landmarks:  Eiffel Tower, Angkor Temple, Sydney Opera House, Statue of Liberty, Taj Mahal, Burj Khalifa, Machu Picchu, Mont Saint-Michel, Acropolis, Neuschwanstein Castle, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Sacre Coeur, Great Pyramid of Giza, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, La Sagrada Familia, Niagara Falls, Golden Gate Bridge, Colosseum, Brandenburg Gate, Grand Canyon, Mount Fuji, Arc de Triomphe, Victoria Falls, and there are many more.

I’m looking forward to seeing all the famous landmarks around the world!
