The word Love lettered with while pen on pink paper. Pens lying around the picture on the table. Title reads, Art gallery, paintings, lettering and drawings from Feb 2019

​This is the first in a new series of posts where I will share all the art I have worked on for the month. I hope to be consistent with it, but life with a chronic illness is anything but consistent, so don't hold me to it. I am very grateful, though, that this month has been quite productive creatively and I am so pleased with the pieces that I have made. I hope you enjoy this little gallery too.

The 100 Day Project 2018 – Watercolour Sunsets

It's been a while since I posted my last round-up of paintings for The 100 Day Project. That's because I actually took a whole month off! 

I am very pleased to be back to it though and have thoroughly enjoyed painting each evening. The sunny summer evenings are just perfect for painting!

This week I picked up where I left off at the start of May with Sunsets as the theme. I will also reveal next week's theme today.

We are now 3 weeks into this year's 100 Day Project! If you've been following along here on my blog, you will know I have divided my 100 Day Project into 10 sets of 10 days. Each set of 10 days has it's own theme to focus on using watercolour inks and gouache.

For the first 10 days I worked on Night Skies and Galaxies, but for this second set I have been working on Flowers.

My 100 Day Project for 2018

The 100 Day Project 2018 BLOG

It's that time of the year again: The 100 Day Project has started and I am so excited about it this year!

I first heard about this incredible challenge in 2015, soon after falling ill, and decided it was a good way to keep busy while I recovered at home. (At that point I did not think I would still be at home 3 years later!)

I try to take part each year, but I have yet to complete a whole 100 days. I am hopeful and quite determined that 2018 will be my year to finish it. I'm changing it up this year and can't wait to share my project with you!
