Greetings. I hope all is well with you.
I wasn’t able to do Salamanca Market today, so I thought I would write a re-cap of October’s drawings.
October is a busy month with the annual Inktober Challenge taking place. During this month, there is a prompt word for each day to produce a drawing from.
This is challenging enough but then I stumbled across Wombatober, which has a list of prompt words for the month of October too. I didn’t produce 62 drawings. I wish I had! But doing two paintings a day is a bit much when you are running a business, doing gallery duty, Salamanca Market and life in general. I’m glad I took up the challenges and produced what I did.
Here are my favourites:
Inktober – Day 7 – Prompt Word “Trip”
Wombatober – Day 13 – Prompt Word “Dress Up”
Inktober – Day 16 – Prompt Word “Fowl”
The Australian Ibis is a native Australian bird. It has the unenviable “Bin Chicken’ nickname. Many of the ibis have moved into mainland Australian cities and they love to go through the rubbish bins. “Sooooo, you’re the one giving us a bad name!”, says the chicken.
Wombatober – Day 14 – Prompt Word “Toy”
“I want to join the circus when I grow up”.
Inktober – Day 24 – “Fairy”
Wombatober – Day 26 – Prompt Word “Swinging”
Inktober – Day 14 – “Empty”
The feeling you get when you arrive at the beach and it is empty, which is not a rare occurrence on island Tasmania with its just over 500,000 population.
Wombatober – Day 27 – Prompt Word “Warm Drink”
Some of these original paintings are for sale on my website. Most are approximately 20 x 20 cm, painted on Khadi Mill paper made from recycled cotton rags. www.pjpaintings.com/collections/originals
What have you been up to during the month of October?
Wishing you a great month with prompts that result in satisfying accomplishments and a day of pampering.
Wombatober – Day 18 – Prompt Word “Pamper Day”
Cheers for now, Patricia Hopwood-Wade
