Christmas is over and the kids are back at school so its time for me to set myself a new challenge for the year.
About 6 months ago I came across the ’52 week Illustration Challenge’ on Facebook – A word prompt is given, one for each week of the year, and you interpret the word in any way you like and produce an illustration on that word. I found myself fascinated by all the wonderful artwork shared and felt in awe of the people who could create magical worlds with pencil and paints and wanted to have a go, but they were half way through the year and, being me, felt it wrong to start half way through (despite the ‘rules’ clearly saying that it is totally fine to do so). I gave myself the task of getting enough courage together to start in January and I did!
Week 1 : Whimsy
Watercolour and colour pencil for the face.
I’m hoping to push myself over this year to improve my drawing and painting and will be sharing my weekly picture on my blog, as well as Facebook.
Hoping to catch up on all the blog posts I’ve missed over the Christmas holidays 🙂
