Paint September

This month on Twitter the hash tag for online artists has been #PaintSeptember. As painting takes more prep work than simply finding something to sketch I've been attempting to get a little more familiar with water colours. I think in the second half of the month I will look at using watercolours as part of pen and ink drawings instead of going in cold with paint alone.

The best thing about doing something like this on twitter is that it forces you to do....something. Doesnt have to be the bestest artwork ever, just has to be done and posted. People can choose to like it, ignore it, comment on it or retweet it for others to see. But more important than the feedback is the process of gentle accountability and the feeling that you really should do one more painting for the month.

Here are some of the little studies that I have done for #PaintSeptember
