Some of my friends said that I shouldn’t add paint to Day #9’s Inktober Challenge’s prompt word “Nest”. They really liked it as it was. So, I left it, but I found myself thinking of it as not finished, so I couldn’t let go of it.
I like to finish art work. Having almost finished or half done art work around me seems to act as a block to starting new paintings. It niggles away at the back of my mind. So, apologies to those who thought I should not add paint because I added paint. What do you think? Should I or should I have not???
Day 24 of the Inktober Challenge. Prompt word 24 is “fairy”.
A wish from the Emu Fairy. You may have not known that emu fairies existed but here is proof that they do. 🙂
The “May All Your Dreams Come True” painting was first drawn with an Artline pen and then watercolour paint was added. I painted it on 310gsm watercolour paper, approximately 21 x 26 cm, and it has my full name and signature on the back.
I love painting emus and seeing the smiles spread over people’s faces when they see the emus’ antics. This stylishly dressed emu is off on a trip with her turquoise suitcase with a large Bon Voyage sticker plastered on it. This will make it easy to spot on the baggage carousel!
I liked this one so much that I’ve had it professionally photographed for prints. Prints are printed on 310gsm print version of William Turner watercolour paper with archival inks. The texture of the paper and quality of inks used often generates the ‘is this an original?’ question. I think that this picture would make a great gift for those who love travelling and anybody associated with the travel industry.

I hope that you are travelling well, regardless if you’re travelling or not. 🙂
Day 4 of the Inktober Challenge and the prompt word for today is “scallop”. My funky emu is wearing her beach jewellery for her day at the seaside. Drawn with an Artline pen first with watercolour added afterwards.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you are enjoying a sunshiny day.
Today is October 1st and that can only mean one thing…. the Inktober Challenge has commenced! What is the Inktober Challenge, you may ask? Jake Parker created Inktober in 2009 as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide event. There are no strict rules. An Inktober prompt list that you can choose to follow or not is released. The aim is to draw a picture every day of the month of October. You can combine prompts into one drawing too. https://inktober.com/
My emus have been doing their warm-ups and are ready to get on with the challenge.
The first word on the prompt list is “Gargoyle”. I drew my picture with an Artline pen and then added watercolour.
All the best to those who are also embarking on the Inktober Challenge or any other challenge.
The month of October has past and so has #Inktober2020. Most of my Inktober drawings tell a story. I have started the process of painting them. Here’s a few that have been painted.
Awwww, there’s nothing like reading a good book in the fresh air and warm sunshine… that is until the neighbourhood wombat decides to start building its home next to you and flicks up dirt onto your book!!!
Run! A storm is coming.
Who would have thought that people (and emus) would be buying brand new jeans that are ripped!
Thank you for visiting and journeying with me on my unfurling art journey.
