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.

Week 10: Weekend

As ‘Weekend’ is a very open topic I decided to do something I think I lot of people can relate to. I personally no longer relate to it ever since I sorted out my sleeping patterns, but at some point I was a total night owl.

I decided to draw and paint a Weekend night owl. It kind of is a bit of waffle since I happened to be drawing an owl anyway, but then I realized that it kind of fits in with this weeks topic.

I started off by drawing the mandala eyes with pen and a little bit of marker. I then used watercolours and Indian ink to make messy feathers. I added some white acrylics, as I can’t find any of my white watercolours. Lastly I added a few little details with my felt tip pen.
