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.

Doodles #4

While I am in a wordy mood, I may as well catch up with my blogging, I only get like this at night time these days. The drawings I am about to share are from the last few months. They are actually from a drawing challenge I didn’t stick with, but at least I did some art!

Doodles #1

I’m a little bit under the weather today so instead of typing up some big blog, I’m just posting a few doodles from over the years. They are in no particular order and some literally make no sense.

Enjoy!
