Inktober 2018 Part 3

The rest of the paintings for Inktober 2018. I learned a lot during this challenge, but also found that I have much more to learn. I find working with ink to be so exciting, despite the mess I sometimes managed to make. I’m looking forward to doing it again next year.
This week I sent three of my inktober paintings to the Galway Art Centre for their open art exhibition. I am very excited to see how that turns out. I would also like to mention that I will be selling art at a stall at the Creeslough craft fair on Sunday the 25th of November. I’m hoping to sell some of my watercolour and ink paintings, digital prints, doodles and Christmas cards. For more information email me; inkyandthepen@gmail.com!

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!
