Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

Pablo Picasso is without a doubt one of the best Spanish artists of all time. I love his self-portraits since his life is reflected in each one of them. His first self-portrait was painted when he was 15 years old and he painted the last of them at the age of 90, a little before his death. All these self-portraits can be seen at the Picasso Museum in Barcelona. I'm always surprised to see the brilliance with which he paints all his works, in addition to his creativity. He is a great master at handling colour ranges and he was one of the creators of cubism, an artistic movement characterized by the use of geometric figures.

Clever stuff happening!
