365 Days of Paint: 21- 31

The pictures below are definitely in the wrong order, but that doesn’t really matter. I feel I have learned so much about lighting, shadows and colour by painting fruit and veg. I think I may make a few patterns out of them soon. I’ll have time to do soanyway since I’ve just moved to Cardiff, I’m currently unemployed and I don’t have wifi for another 10 days. I’ve now moved on to floral paintings for February. Enjoy!

365 Days of Paint: 11-20

Painting these every single day is so much fun, I’m learning so much and I can’t wait to see how my art looks by the end of the year! I have made time lapse videos of some of these paintings I will upload onto this site soon enough. Lately I am constantly listening to an audio book, it feels like a serious addiction. I can’t stop for too long, even now typing up this blog I keep thinking about ‘Stormlight Archives’ by Branden Sanderson. A bright side to this is I need to be doing something with my hands that doesn’t require too much thought while I listen to the books, so I always want to paint and make things.

Enjoy the paintings and follow me on instagram if you want to see images like these on a daily basis.

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.
