Inktober 2018 Part 1

Inktober is an art challenge that takes place during October with ink as the main medium. There is a list of daily prompts which helps you decide what to draw each day. I had a lot of fun with Inktober this year and will be using a lot of the designs for society 6 and redbubble. I may even sell a few original Ink works on etsy. I had a few stressful moments as I took part Inktober and 365 Days of Paint at the same time, doubling the amount of work I was used to doing. I went home to Ireland for a week during OctoberΒ  and couldn’t paint every day because I was catching up with family and friends. So they weren’t all done daily, most of them were done days after the deadline.

The name of the prompts are under each painting. I will be posting the rest in a few days time.

Day 1 Poison
Day 2 Zen
Day 3 Roasted
Day 4 Spell
Day 5 Chicken
Day 6 Drooling
Day 7 Exhausted
Day 8 Star
Day 9 Precious
Day 10 Flowing

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.
