The 100 artwork challenge

I have recently signed up to the 100 artworks challenge, joining over 200 artists from around the globe, in an effort to build up a body of work and also to try to hone my style.

The challenge was set up on Facebook by artist Kellee Wynne Conrad earlier this month. It’s a fantastic group with some really beautiful creations and lots of feedback from other artists If you are interested in taking part just visit Kellee’s blog http://www.artistwriterdreamer.com

You just have to wait a short time for Kellee to accept your request to take part. I am finding it hugely inspiring to see all the different styles of painting and learning so much from the experience. There are no rules as such but Kellee suggests that everyone attempt to stick to a theme and a medium. This little painting is acrylic on 300 gm paper.

I am working intuitively playing with marks and colour and building up depth through layering and applying the paint with a variety of tools.

IMG_5604 My theme is to work intuitively on organic creations ( I have deliberately kept the theme quite loose to give me lots of freedom) using acrylics. I have reached 14/100 and the intention is to continue to post here as well as on my Instagram account @artistintheshed. If you wish to view process and paintings in progress then do feel free to sign up to follow me on Instagram as I post there more frequently. All work will be for sale in my Etsy shop that I plan to open in the near future. I hope you enjoy the paintings – I’m having lots of fun making them!

This painting is inspired by organic forms that emerged intuitively, it’s all about colour, pattern and dots! IMG_5615
