I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

Inktober Week 3

Hello all, thanks so much for your company on this bright autumn day (well, it is here anyway).  I'm keeping it short today but with lots of photos, as it's time for another Inktober catch up.  Here are days 15 through to 21, and the daily challenge is definitely paying off in terms of what I'm learning as I go.  (You can find out all about what I'm up to and what materials I'm using in Inktober Week 1.)  With no further ado...

UPDATE - dash it all, I was in such a hurry I completely forgot to say that some of these are from photo inspiration by Helen Lindfield of stampingbyh and photosbyh, from her weekly visits to Kew.  It's the rosehips on Day 17 and the Physalis on Day 20.  Sorry, Helen - I'm going to blame it on moving-brain!

Day 15



Day 16




Day 17



Day 18



Day 19



Day 20


Day 21



That's your lot and I hope there are some new favourites for you to enjoy... I know I have my own particular delights (and frustrations - but we won't go into those!).  




I hope you are all managing to stay safe, well and creative.  Take care out there and I'll see you again soon, either here or elsewhere in Craftyblogland.

The tastiest berries are often hidden.  Do not despair if you haven't found true love.  Look under the leaves and branches of convention.

I'd like to join in at Paint Party Friday where they have reached the Week 34, Year 10 check-in

And the lovely Chris still wants us to Hold the Line at Art Journal Journey - my line and wash technique is how I'm holding the line

Again, there's one painting where I've got Purple, Orange and Green, so I'd like to play along at the Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog too

Beautiful art, all of it, one lovelier than the other. Thanks for joining us at AJJ, much appreciated. Stay safe, hugs, Valerie

Astrid Maclean said...

They are all stunning Alison!! My favourites I would say are October 16, 20 and 21. Thinking back over your first watercolours a long time ago, it is obvious that practice truly does make perfect. This is truly a fantastic collection, I am in love!

Cestina said...

No stunning autumn day here sadly. Misty,moisty morning. Days 20 and 21 for me please...

I see a range of beautiful mugs looming one day....where can the kiln go I ask myself?

These are amazing Alison. I love this topic of nature, there is something especially gorgeous about the leftovers (Ok maybe not exactly leftovers) as the season changes. You splatters add wonderful details too. These are quite inspiring. Thanks for sharing with us at Chris' Hold the LIne challenge. Always much appreciated. Hugs-Erika

Leave it to me to be late visiting. Story of my life this month. You have created some incredible beauties and I am in total awe of each of them. I really like the ones that were mostly brown. They are more your style and I think that's why I prefer them. However, they are all fantastic. Also, thanks beyond belief for sharing these with us at Art Journal Journey using Chris's theme.

Beautiful artwork Alison, the images look so lifelike. The leaves on 21 have to be my favourite, there's a wonderful depth to them.

Sue said...

These are so beautiful Alison, no way am I trying to choose a favourite. Take care, Sue xx

craftytrog said...

Impossible to pick a favourite, but I do love your leaves Alison! X

Nan G said...

Oh wow! They are all fantastic Alison. I have no faves ‘crept to say”All”. :) You’re picking up watercolors brilliantly. Hugs Nan and the Girls

Craftyfield said...

They are all good but I find Day 21 technically excellent, I get a 3D impression of the curvature of the leaves and all their textures. All that practice is worth the frustrations, Alison!

Rain said...

Beautiful art! :) Days 20 and 21 are my favourites, I love those colours!

nwilliams6 said...

Gorgeous art! I feel so inspired looking at them. TFS! Wow.

Paper Profusion said...

Definitely too tricky to choose Alison as they all look beautiful!! x

Felix the Crafty Cat said...

Just simply gorgeous. Happy creative week, Angela xXx

sarascloset said...

Oh my goodness, Alison! What a treat for the eyes! I love your ability to observe nature and mimic it so beautifully through your watercolors, paper and pens! I'm delighted you've shared your artwork in our Purple, orange green! Eek it's Halloween challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog!

WendyK said...

Lagene said...

Beautiful creations, I especially love the hanging orange pods, to me they look like fall rosehips.

You know I love these...oh those berries!

Helen said...

thanks for taking the time to go back and add the links, it is much appreciated - I recognised the inspiration anyway!!

Jenny Marples said...

More beautiful artwork Alison. They remind me so much of the style seen in Diary of an Edwardian Lady and I bet they would look fabulous published in a book together. Thank you for sharing it with us at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog x
