Inktober Day 1

Inktober Day 1

 

This month I am participating in Inktober. My first offering is kind of a cheat since I actually started it weeks ago for a tree challenge for Tangle All Arounda Zentangle Facebook group I belong to. It just took me a really long time to finish, so I’m letting it do double duty. Zentangle patterns used: purrlyz, golven, quipple, and paradox.

My ICAD and World Watercolor Month Final Tally

My ICAD and World Watercolor Month Final Tally

This summer I participated in three overlapping art challenges. I posted my last update a month ago. The Daisy Yellow Index-Card-a-Day challenge ran June through July, and July was also World Watercolor Month.

I had chosen animals as my theme for ICAD, because I wanted to practice drawing them. But I really missed my Zentangle, so I tangled the butterfly below:

This is what it looked like when it was painted. I think I like the black-and-white better:

I experimented with watercolor pencils. Either I’m not doing it right, or my pencils are crappy, because to me this hen looks like it was done in colored pencils, even though I washed the heck out of it:

In honor of our late dachshund, Rudi:

And this kitty looks a little like our Zoe, but not really:

And here are all my challenge projects:

Only 24, not 61, which would be one a day. Mostly that’s because most of my projects took more than one day to make. I limited myself to 45 minutes a day so I’d still have some writing time. The center column above are my World Watercolor Month paintings.
