Now that this challenge is through I’m kinda wishing it would go on. But then I remembered last year around this time I came up with a list of weekly challenges… I only did about three in total and I’m wondering if I should continue on.
It sounds very appealing. Perhaps I’ll start with flowers.
**P.S. I must be the worst blogger in history lol! I left this in draft status and its not the first time I’m doing this guhh …anyway better late than never right.
This week I’ve joined in on a challenge by an artist on instagram who’s lettering/calligraphy inspires me. Starting Sunday; the first prompt was the King Trumpet and day 2 was the Fly Agaric (better known as Fly Amanita). These were my contributions. I’ll be posting Day 3 and 4 (today) a little later on. 🙂 Hope your weeks going well (despite the apparent chaos in the world).
I painted these little sea nettles yesterday. I painted lots of abstracts while I was away in hopes of sharing when I return but somehow I don’t feel like posting any of them. Instead I have this oomph to just paint and share whatever comes to mind. – Like jellyfish! Which I just love (don’t touch these though – they sting!) ^_^
I painted these using paint directly onto the page no planning out shapes or outlines with pencil. I do this when I’m anxious about the subject – if I go straight into it, its less likely I’ll think myself out of finishing it… sometimes it doesnt work but when in does I can go on and on (case and point I had planned to do just 1 deer here). I should have stopped before the final one (the leaping fawn) but I was on a roll lol.
An abstract using acrylic ink and watercolour (burnt umber and burnt sepia) for the last day of Inktober. Phew! I had loads of fun but feel somewhat exhausted and am tempted to take a week long break but knowing me I’ll only make it a day at most away from painting. (I’m already thinking of that waterfall abstract that I haven’t had time to work on…). Lol we’ll see.
