100 Days of Paint: Days 61-70

It’s November. Know what that means? It is officially okay to talk about Christmas. Also for me it means I can start making Christmas Cards. (not that it has anything to do with the paintings below)

Have a look through the paintings in this post, I really feel like I was doing a lot of experimentation and exploration in painting styles here. It’s good to be able to get in the zone and discover different techniques I could use in the future!

If you like what you see like, share, follow or maybe even consider setting up a commission.

Week 7: Botanical

For this weeks challenge I have an unfinished piece I never want to look at again. I started off motivated, but I started working on a drawing for a friends birthday present, by the time I got back to the drawing I went crazy from just looking at it. Even today when I decided it was finished I feel completely artistically drained, though I started the day feeling optimistic and driven to work all day.

I used a lot of pen, a little bit of Indian ink and watercolours. Some parts of the drawing are just scribbles because I lost all patience with drawing plants. It might be because in my challenge last week I was also drawing plants, so I now never want to see another plant again.

Botanical, Indian ink, felt tip pen and watercolours.

I decide to only colour the flowers and didn’t colour the leaves because I wanted to make sure the main focus is on the center. Hopefully next week will be better. I may do a digital drawing next week because the theme will be Pastel. I don’t have any pastels, so I will use pastel colours in the drawing I am yet to decide on.
