The Next Challenge
Recently, along side my workshops I've been taking on some mini personal challenges, which will be written about in a little more in-depth within my blog.
My new drawing challenge is somthing I've been wanting to do for a while and I finally have some time to put into it. I have taken on the 100 day challenge of creating work, whether its a painting or a quick sketch, every day for the next 100 days. Today I have reached up to day 34, and so far it has been a little stuggle, BUT! I feel like my techniques are improving and my ideas are coming forward a little faster than before.
As it is now October, and Inktober was another challenge which i figured might be good to get involved in aswell!I decided to take on both! making 2 sketches a day for this month, so here goes, my 100 days of drawing together with Inktober, its going to be a full on month of sketching.
Keep checking back for updates!
Heres a little sneak preview of my work for these projects.

Between 2017 -2019 at Lambhill Stables I have run a series of different art based workshops some of which included an October week Drawing and Sculpture workshop. The participants were mostly aged 16 and for other art workshops using clay and printing participants have ranged from ages 8 to 24.

Pigment making workshop: With the Youth Club at Lambhill Stables
This workshop focused mainly on finding types of soil and rocks that could be dried or crushed down to a powder to make pigments for painting. We started off looking for different coloured rocks, and minerals in the garden which we collected up and crushed down.
Once turned into a fine powder we mixed it with small amounts of water to create our paints, we also experimented with egg whites and linseed oil to see the different outcomes of the paint.
