The 100 Day Project: Day Fifteen

Sunday 3 March 2024

Hello again,

Just a quick one from me this evening. I'm feeling pretty unwell and my itchy eyes (conjunctivitis x2) are driving me crazy. I cannot wait to get back into bed at last! I hope your Sunday has been in better form. I confess, my left eye was so annoying today, that I taped it shut with a plaster. My children found this most amusing, and my partner said I looked like I belonged in a computer game, haha.

This was a nice fun piece with acrylic inks in Process Yellow, Phthalo Turquoise and Purple Lake. I dropped them into water, plopped them down with the dropper and pulled them around with a brush. Then I took some bubble wrap to it (not super successful) and scraped around with a piece of card (much more successful). Finally, I took my little piece of charcoal for a walk around the page in whatever way struck me. It was colourful and full of freedom, and whatever it is, I think I kinda like it!

That's all for another week, loves. See you tomorrow to start a brand new one. Hopefully with two good eyes!!

The 100 Day Project: Day Fourteen

I didn't get around to writing this post yesterday despite being in my study most of the day. I was poorly and I got so into making art, that at some point I just forgot about the blogging bit. I then headed to bed pretty early and it only dawned on me this morning that I hadn't written...

For this bit of art yesterday, I played with watercolours again. This time with texture using salt and bubble wrap, something I did in a Domestika course a year or so ago and really enjoyed, but hadn't really done since I don't think! Out came that MaimeriBlu dot card again, haha. I painted on some of the Green Gold, Phthalo Turquoise and Payne's Grey in fairly random blobs to start with. I had intended them to merge together more, but never mind. I sprinkled some salt over that painted area and then splattered on more of the same colours over the top. I put some more paint down in the remaining blank are and placed some bubble wrap over it. Once it was all dry, I drew some botanical designs on in charcoal and then called it a day.


I like the textures in this one, the drawing on the top I'm not so keen on though. It is what it is.

The 100 Day Project: Day Thirteen

Friday 1 March 2024

Evening all,

I'm a little late to the party tonight because I'm feeling so poorly today. If I could have, I would have just stayed curled up in bed all day, but that's just not possible!

The page for today's project was a very quick watercolour situation. I'm using the heck out of that MaimeriBlu dot card, haha.

I pre-wet a cloud-ish shape on the page, added the watercolours in Cobalt Turquoise, Ultramarine Deep, and Payne's Grey, and then let it run down the page. Repeat. I then did some splattering in the same colours. I painted a wee rainbow with the Green Gold, Pyrole Orange, and Quinacridone Lake. Finally I added some rainbow, rain and bird marks with a Sepia Pitt Artist Pen. Done. 


It's nothing special, but it was a little pick-me-up on this very dreary day. I loved the texture in the watercolours of the cloud. I think as much as I chase mixed media in my work, my heart really lies with watercolours...
