Floral Watercolours

It has probably been about 4 months since I’ve actually posted anything on this page. I’ve been quite distracted lately, continuously painting and posting on instagram and facebook, but I’ve ignored etsy, this website and other platforms I am meant to be selling work on. I painted these paintings in March as part of an instagram challenge. I think a lot of them would be very good to make into patterns. One thing I am intending to do soon is learn how to make patterns as I am never satisfied with my results. Perhaps there will be a skillshare class I can learn something from. I’ve been accepted into a Graphic Design course in the LYIT in my hometown, I’m not sure if I will get funded yet, so I need to start working on selling my work at galleries and art fairs to ensure I have the money to continue my studies. I have been feeling like procrastinating a lot, but can’t afford to do so any longer. I have a few ideas of how I can make money, but would love to hear any ideas from the rest of you, leave a comment or send me a message if you have any advice.

Below are floral paintings I had a lot of fun making, so check them out and let me know what you think of them. I’ll post my more recent illustrations soon enough to this sight.

365 Days of Paint: 346 – 365

Here we have the final paintings for last years challenge. I feel like I have learned so much about painting and about myself while working on these. I still can’t believe I spent a full year painting every single day! I’ve never been good at committing myself to anything, but I can definitely say I want to paint and draw for the rest of my life, I just need to find some stability with it. I’m considering applying for the visual communication course in the Lyit, I would love to be more employable in digital art. Anyway enjoy the paintings, I will try to post more regularly to this website.

365 Days of Paint: 281-290

As usual I am very bad at posting regularly on this website. I visited home and had inktober, so I was doing two paintings a day. When I needed a day to myself without art it doubled the amount of work I needed to get done. I got it all done eventually, once I came back from Ireland, but I still feel bad for not having it done on the day. The challenge is finally going to be completed soon. I am actually really excited to finish it. I’ve learned so much this year. I am a lot more confident in my painting and in selling my work. I will be posting more stuff on etsy soon. I don’t think I’ll do the Christmas cards this year. I will sell commissions instead. Something that has been triggering my art block lately is trying to do too many different things out of my comfort zone with my art. Once I get used to regularly selling my artwork I will start the next thing, like taking baby steps.
