Last week I discovered a new painting challenge that involved using prompts and painting on 2″x2″ pieces of watercolour paper. Amy from firstname.lastname@example.org is hosting the Inchie Challenge for 12 days. It started on August 16 and goes to the 27th but you can start in anytime. There’s no charge for this challenge and it’s a great way to re-energize your creative juices.
On the weekend I packed up my travelling watercolour set, a brush and a few micron pens and 30 little squares that I had pre-cut. I wasn’t sure I could paint this small but once I started I was hooked. I managed to make 19 little paintings using the prompts, bundle, egg, mend and yellow. Here’s what I came up with.
I’ve started my day by drawing in my new art journal 500 Drawing Prompts. Today the prompts are flags, tattoos and family crest. I drew the flag from memory, the crest I made up and the tattoo I referenced from Google. Unfortunately you can see how the pen from the previous drawing has bled through. I’ve switched to Micron pens and that seems to help.
