Inktober 2018 Part 1

Inktober is an art challenge that takes place during October with ink as the main medium. There is a list of daily prompts which helps you decide what to draw each day. I had a lot of fun with Inktober this year and will be using a lot of the designs for society 6 and redbubble. I may even sell a few original Ink works on etsy. I had a few stressful moments as I took part Inktober and 365 Days of Paint at the same time, doubling the amount of work I was used to doing. I went home to Ireland for a week during October  and couldn’t paint every day because I was catching up with family and friends. So they weren’t all done daily, most of them were done days after the deadline.

The name of the prompts are under each painting. I will be posting the rest in a few days time.

Day 1 Poison
Day 2 Zen
Day 3 Roasted
Day 4 Spell
Day 5 Chicken
Day 6 Drooling
Day 7 Exhausted
Day 8 Star
Day 9 Precious
Day 10 Flowing

100 Days of Paint: Days 71-80

I really should have posted these as I did them on this website, I seem to be a lot more committed to Instagram and Facebook. Now that it is November I find it extremely difficult to be motivated to post regularly, set up an etsy shop and start selling my work. I like to call it the Winter blues. I already suffer from depression, which I have control of most of the time, but ever since the clocks went back it’s been getting darker so much earlier, which is so depressing and I just find it so hard to do anything. Luckily completing 100 days of paint has made drawing and painting come more naturally as a daily ritual. Enjoy the paintings! I think I’ll finally make a post about my October artwork ‘Inktober’ soon.
