30 Paintings in 30 days :)

I decided to start September with a challenge to myself – to complete 30 paintings in 30 days !  I had been given lovely watercolours from a colleague who didn’t use them.  This prompted me to start some floral wreaths in various tones.  Happy to say I’m keeping on course … here they are ….. so far!!

Update – LeakyCon Dublin 2017

Well …to say that my session ‘Doodling Harry Potter’ this month at LeakyCon Dubin..was a success…would be an understatement!  I am always a little nervous when I teach and think that no-one will turn up!  This time I was hoping for 10-15 folk …. what a surprise when we arrived at the room and we counted how many came …140!! Wow… I’m still smiling!

I was so impressed with all of the participants – aged 4 – 54!!  They were all really responsive and talented too!  It made me realize that I love to teach …and to see people drawing/painting again.  See the photos below for their happy, smiling faces 🙂 !!

My thanks go to my sister Denise (check out her lovely assembled boxes at Denise’s Boxes) and my brother in law Norm who ran around to try to find more paper and pens!!  I also want to mention the lovely lady from Australia – Doodles by Sarah – who very kindly gave me permission to use her Harry Potter art to run the session … (it would have be difficult to paint my acrylic landscapes in the session!!) Thank you!

Doodling Harry Potter!!

Excited about doing some Harry Potter doodling at LeakyCon in Dublin this month and so happy to be alongside (even on a page!) to Miraphora Mina of MinaLima !! From Harry Potter’s Hogwarts letter and the Marauder’s Map to the MACUSA crest and magical items inside Newt Scamander’s case, graphic designers Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima have brought all of J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World to life, down to the tiniest detail.

Hi everyone!

This is a new kind of artwork for me!  One of my colleagues asked if I knew of someone who could draw her dog as a gift.  I said ‘I can try’ (never having drawn any kind of animal before!)…nothing ventured …nothing gained.  Thankfully she loved it and that lead on to drawing quite a few before the New Year.  It’s a different kind of art …not as free and easy as painting abstracts in acrylic but satisfying nonetheless!

 

Hope you enjoy them !    Mo x
