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.

100 Days of Paint: Days 81 – 100

I have finally posted all of my paintings for 100 days of Paint! It really was such an amazing experience and it really helped me grow as an artist. I think I will do a Christmas themed painting challenge throughout December, if anyone knows any challenges I should take part of let me know! I also think for 2018 I am going to do 365 days of paint. I realize that this is probably a little too ambitious for me as I plan to do a lot in 2018; Move to Cardiff, start an online MA in Illustration and attempt to work freelance (once I stop procrastinating and actually start selling things on etsy!) Speaking of which I am hoping to print off Christmas cards soon, just currently looking for the right place to buy them off.

Enough of my rantings, enjoy these 20 paintings I’ve crammed into the last blog! Christmas is just around the corner so if you would like to buy a painting as a gift then give me a shout.

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.

100 Days of Paint: Days 31-40

I have been posting so much paintings on instagram that I have barely posted anything on this website. Definitely going to attempt to post more regularly. I need to set up an inktober blog too.

While I was doing these paintings I started to consider doing surface pattern designs. I have worked on a few things on photoshop, but have many more things to learn.

Have a look at my paintings, like them, share them, follow me and let me know if you would like to set up a commission!
