August challenge!

Time to challenge myself!
30 paintings in 30 days. But there are more rules to make things interesting 😈

1. One subject. For me, horses obviously.

2. Six mediums: Watercolour, gouache, acrylic, ink, pastel, graphite.

3. Only 5 paintings in each medium.

So... I have put the name of each medium on a straw, to be drawn each morning, so I never know what I will get! Once I have drawn/used a medium 5 times, that straw will go in the bin so potentially the scope could narrow fairly quickly. Time will tell.

Day one was graphite.
Not my favourite medium and one of the reasons for the challenge; to get me out of my comfort zone and try different things

Day two was ink and another medium I don't usually use, talk about in with a bang! I thought I would try my hand at zentangling for this one. It hurt my eyes!

I now have to wait and see what tomorrow brings!
