The 100 Day Project

A daily drawing practice for Summer 2017.

Follow me on Instagram for daily updates

All through this summer I’m taking my morning coffee, not with the usual onslaught of information from social media, but with a new friend: this little sketchbook.

Together we ease into the day. The light mornings mean my days begin earlier in the summer, it’s still quiet out in the world and nobody knows I’m awake, not even the internet. Shhhh!

As someone who obsessively takes photos wherever I go, I've got plenty of visual inspiration in my phone, so each day I choose one to inspire my morning doodles.

Every day I learn more, not just about drawing.

2017: Year of Color

2017 is all about color. This year I'm taking a journey round the color wheel, one color per month.

This adventure is called TWELVTY.

Everything I've ever painted, dreamt & doodled has been leading up to this year & this adventure. 

Everything.  All of it. 


Each month this year I'm creating a collection of mixed art in just one color.  Month by month you can find the fruits of my one-color work in my Etsy shop.

Each month I take another step around the color wheel. Another adventure in another color.

Watch this space to see the project unfold...

January is all about Yellow: everything lemony lush, bright sunshine color to welcome in the new year.
February is a month of Yellow-Green, bright lime to opulent olive.
March is all the verdant grassy Greens, the colors of springtime.
April is Blue-Green, the aqua turquoise and teal tones of mermaids & peacocks.
May is all cool Blue, from cloudless sky through to deepest midnight.
June is Blue-Violet - from inky midnight indigo through bluebell & lavender to misty lilac.
July is Violet - delicate mauves through to the opulence and luxury of deepest purples.
August is Red-Violet - Magenta to Mauve and a hint of pink

Some of us come on earth seeing.

Making personal, authentic art gives the rest of the world permission to do the same... What begins quietly in your studio by no means stays there. It becomes part of something moving, something bigger.
