Inktober Challenge Days 8-14


Am busy working to a deadline, so shan’t say much here, just that I’m pleased that I’ve still found time to paint daily for the Inktober monthly challenge! Here are the paintings from last week in reverse order.

I’m still meandering all over the place where style and focus is concerned, but that’s the whole point of experimenting daily … while adjusting to working with inks. I did add watercolour to the mix in a couple of the pieces above, but am considering going inky monochrome from here till the end of the month. Black and grey, here I come! Which piece do you like best, as I’d love to know!

All of the sketches above were from prompts over at the Inktober class with Lisa Congdon at CreativeBug, so go take a peek at that if you feel like joining in! This last week was a floral theme, but coming up is something different …
