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.

100 Days of Paint: Days 1- 10

I am over 50 days into 100 days of paint, I have nearly completed a full sketchbook, posted it all on instagram, but I haven’t posted any of them on this website. Doing one painting every day is more of a challenge I have set for myself to make sure I keep up with the practice and improve. So far I have gone from detailed paintings of birds, to random patterns and textures, realizing that in order to stayed motivated to continue painting every day I have to lower my expectations and accept that not all of my paintings will be good. In fact the mistakes of a bad painting teaches me a lot more than any good painting. I have already learned so much and have really enjoyed it a lot.

Also would like to say that I will be doing Inktober as well, which will be posted on my instagram inkyandthepen.  

I would also like to mention that I am attempting to set up shop using my new paintings, just need to get round to editing them all and I will post about it when I’m done.

Enjoy the paintings!
