🎨📹 HELLO DEARS! TODAY WE’VE GOT A DIDACTICAL VIDEO TO FOLLOW THE PROCEDURE OF A FRESH AND GENUINE WORK. ENJOY
Hi friends! I was planning on doing Inktober this year but decided that I would just do my own thing. I wanted to improve my figure drawing skills so I am drawing people every day this month.
This was day 2 of my personal art challenge. If you want to see the daily artwork you can follow me on Instagram. You can see the time-lapse of this painting below!
Supplies: (Affiliate links used)
- Sketchbook 9″x12″ Arteza Watercolor book *(“x12″ is sold out so I linked my other most useful size, the 8″x8”

That’s all for today! Are you doing an art challenge this month? I might try to work in the 6 Drawtober prompts this month as well. I think personal art goals are really great for growing your skills. I am looking forward to working on…

1. Draw a dot
For Marcus Kan, the founder of Draw a dot, it all started with a blog he created in late 2009 ‘Fusion of effects’.

🌹👔 SO TRUE, SISTERS. THIS WORK BY MICHELLE IS TELLING US THAT GENUINE MIXED ART HAS NO LIMITS.
The third image in ‘Daughter Of Woman’ series is finished!
I love the patterns and colours in this image and the contrast between the two.
The lightbulb is original, only cut out and not warped or anything. I hunted down all these unusually shaped lightbulbs in the series.
The wallpaper is a book of scrapbook papers based on designs from the Natural History Museum in London. They resemble more closely the vintage wallpaper I had in mind when I was conceptualising this series.
Many thanks to my almost husband for modelling the shirt!
I’ll post some information on how to get your hands on limited edition prints soon!
📌✂📎 CHERISHED SISTERS, AS YOU CAN SEE, ART CAN MADE WITH ANY STUFF.
I began this project by designing my own fabric into a panel that can be used by students and the public alike. I drew it in my iPad Pro
As you can see, I’ve added pattern and detail, and in this form, it is still in the iPad. My idea was to create a sampler of sorts including stitch styles, colour combinations and the method of using the quilting to form a whole cloth quilt. The design was printed on fine cotton by Spoonflower in the USA.
I used 12 weight cotton for the hand stitching.
80 weight cotton for the free motion stitching. I added a ceramic face, turquoise buds and buttons.
The printed panel is placed onto a background of ShweShwe fabric from South Africa. It’s heavy until washed. It appears to have a wax or starch coating so I’m using that to my advantage. The panel is…

📝📎💜 HELLO LOVELIES! THIS WORK IS SO GREAT. I ONLY WOULD LIKE TO CONTRIBUTE, WITH A QUOTE BY THIS IMPORTANT FEMINIST: ” I don’t ask for favors for my sex. All I ask of our mates is that they take their feet off our necks”.
As I contemplated how I would memorialize the most inspiring woman of my lifetime, I read the words of eulogy spoken and written by so many other voices of our times. I watched the videos about her life and experienced the same heartbreaking loss as others who revered her. And I wondered if democracy may have died with Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
And then I opted for a bit of everything I like: painting a watercolor portrait, adding lace fabric collars (since the prompt I’d given my Muse friends this week was fabric collage!) and those words of praise she so richly deserved.
And now, what will life after RBG bring?
🔴 🔵 OH SUGARS! IT’S TIME FOR THIS MYSTICAL AND SUBLIME WORK. HERE LESS IS MORE.
Good writing, like good art, is inspirational. It can change the way you see things and do things; it can cause you to appreciate things differently; and it can help you become more conscious of your art.
I stumbled across the on-line magazine IDEELART and happened to read a description of the Argentinian artist Martin Reyna’s gestural abstract paintings, executed in ink of differing colours and patterns. The paintings were striking, but it was the description of them that grabbed my attention. The author wrote how the ink reacted ‘spontaneously and unpredictably as colors dispel and scatter, graciously vibrating, and transgressing its initial boundaries’. Although the artist composes his work carefully and consciously he yet allows ‘the forces of nature to seize the process and lead it most erratically’. This is no mere description of the precise elements of art the artist used, it…
