100 Watercolour Afro-Ladies

100 Watercolour Afro-Ladies

Are you doing the 100 Day project this year? It started on January 31st, but you can totally still start this if you like.

I am making daily watercolour afro-ladies. One week in I am feeling pretty good about it! It’s a bit of a challenge, which is great. I am learning about both watercolour and painting faces, both of which have been goals of mine for a while.

Here are my ladies so far.

My process is to choose something in my house to inspire a colour scheme. Then I do a palette of the colours, then I paint the lady. I am trying different watercolour techniques, and learning more about portraits as I go.

It’s all happening on my artsy Instagram, so follow me there if you want to see my progress!

Are you doing the project? Link me to yours!

    • Oh, thanks so much! I grew up thinking I had no artistic ability but I was wrong! It’s a skill that can be learned 🙂

  • What a good idea. Love your ladies. I’m doing the project, too. I’m sewing a log cabin quilt square a day. Hopefully I’ll have 100 squares, enough to make a queen sized quilt.

  • wow, I am already two days behind on the Ultimate Blog Challenge and now you have me wanting to join the 100-day challenge. I like acrylic paints, but I have watercolor paints, colored pencils, and pastels just waiting for me to explore… I just got a nice large room for all my crafting things so it is time to put it to good use. I love what you are doing. As a chef, I think I could focus on food. It will be abstract but looks like a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing your ideas. By the way, I do not think of my brain so much as a scatterbrain more as a multidimensional brain

    • Multidimensional brain is a great description. Sometimes I will say I am multipassionate. You should definitely go for the project!
