Inktober

Inktober was a challenge I took part in during October, I painted and drew using black ink for the most of it in one of my pocket sized watercolour sketchbooks. Great experience, ended up loving some of the results, although I really disliked a lot of the paintings. I also discovered a new style I can use while painting and shot up by about 100 followers on instagram during that month. Have a browse through my 31 paintings and drawings, let me know what you think. I am currently looking for a Christmas challenge to partake in, but if there’s none I really like then I might start my own challenge like “#25daysofchristmaspainting” or maybe something that is less of a mouth full. Leave a like, follow me and check out my Instagram, Facebook or Twitter by clicking one of the icons at the top of the page! Again I will be doing commissions coming up to Christmas so contact me if you are interested in buying someone a Christmas present.

Week 11: Cat

I don’t know if anyone noticed, but I changed the theme for this week. It was originally ‘perspective’, but as I attempted to measure everything out in perspective and learn all about horizon lines and vanishing points, my art did what it normally does and took on its own form. As I finished it I got frustrated and decided to swap a few of my challenge themes for better ones. So Cat, as boring as some may think, is my theme for this week.

I used Indian ink for the whole thing, making different textures and different shapes. I’m actually really proud of this one and may mess around with it on Photoshop. Let me know what you think and if this is the type of thing I should do more often. Leave a like, share and follow me!
