No matter the conditions, we all gotta get our art done. But whether the weather is bright and sunny or dark and cloudy, every artist prefers a different kind of outdoor atmosphere in the background of a long day drawing. What gets your creative gears spinning? The pitter-patter of rain on a cozy laundry day? To have your room lit only by the light of a cloudless, sunny day? We asked the winners of a few of our home decor challenges what their favorite drawing weather was. See if you agree!

I love a wonderful stormy day, preferably with thunder, lightning, and a cat on my lap.

I like going outside on sunny days and watching the birds and insects and, of course, the big fluffy clouds. I think it helps my creativity.

I like creating art anywhere. Ideas come whenever and one must catch them as soon as possible. Then comes the time to properly work on it and refine it. For that, I like to be in my own room, working from my table. Extra points if it’s rainy or cloudy!
