Busy with Inktober and map-calendar

Still doing my Inktober-ladies, and still enjoying it :-)

It looks like this year I will be able to finish Inktober for the first time!

I've also been working on my map-paintings. I should be able to upload everything to my Lulu-shop this weekend. We have one extra hour since the time is changing this weekend to winter-time again. Yippie. I always love that extra hour :-)

Here are 2 map-paintings that are finished:

I will have more than 12 paintings, so I'll have to make a selection of which ones I want to use for my calendar. That's quite a luxury I must say ... ;-)

That's it for this week! I will be linking to Paint Party Friday tomorrow. Now the only thing left to do is post my funnies and thinkies :-)

Hope you're having a wonderful day, and that the weekend will be amazing :-) 
Take care! I'll be back next week ♥ ♥ ♥

Still going strong!

Yep, I'm surprising myself, I'm still doing Inktober!

I've told myself a few times already to stop it and get on with the stuff for my market and my group-exhibition in December.

But I can't. I'm a bit addicted to drawing these women, giving them all their own character and searching for quotes that fit them perfectly.

I just enjoy it :-) So  I keep going ....

Although I must admit I started panicking a bit when my daughter mentioned she only has one more week of school before the autumn-break ...

November is going to be a very very busy month with family-business, so I won't have much time to do anything art-wise.

I'm not even sure I will be able to blog ...

So yesterday I sat down at my art-table, whipped out my roadbook, put on my headphones and made 7 map-paintings! Seven! They're not all finished yet, but boy did it feel good to make such progress :-) Here's the first one completely finished:

I'm not sure how my doodle-calendar will proceed. I have all the drawings in pencil, I just need to put them in marker, which isn't a lot of work, but I also need to add all of those small details. Not sure whether I'll find the time and/or the patience for that. We'll see. My map-calendar will be finished though!

That's it for this week! I'll be linking to Paint Party Friday tomorrow. Only one thing left to do now: post some funnies and thinkies :-)

Thanks so much for your visit and your uplifting comments! Have a wonderful day, take care and I'll be back next week ♥ ♥ ♥

Inktober series

Despite expecting that I would only be doing a few ink drawings, I am still going strong!

I draw every day, it's just the words that sometimes take a while longer.

And I don't succeed in posting every day.

But who cares? I'm enjoying making these ladies.

After I've drawn them I search for a quote that fits them well. They all have their own character and carry their own message, so it can sometimes take a while before I find a quote that fits them.

I try to post on Instagram every day. A lot of people are participating.

Who knows, I might even finish this challenge!

I'm already thinking of maybe making a little booklet out of these ....

But first of course I need to finish my calendars. Hopefully by next week I'll have a few more pages done!

That's it for now. Linking to Paint Party Friday tomorrow. In case you haven't had enough yet: here are my weekly funnies and thinkies :-)


Thanks for visiting! Enjoy your day, and for those in the path of a storm: stay safe! ♥ ♥ ♥
