Art Challenge 2019 - #MerMay

I’m probably bonkers for committing to an art challenge this month, but here I am!

This month, like I did last year, I’m participating in the MerMay challenge! Last year was done fully traditional with watercolors and inks, and I liked how most of my paintings turned out

This year, I’m craving some practice with digital tools, so I’m using the Procreate app on my iPad Pro and using randomly generated color palettes to guide my paintings. Digital art is still challenging for me, and that’s super frustrating! I have to approach it very differently from how I approach watercolor painting, but this month is about challenging myself and growth! Expect some radio silence in a couple weeks because “The Big Move” is happening right in the middle of the month! It will derail me a bit, but I’m committing to seeing this challenge through to the end! After I get settled, I’m going to start on some new paintings, product designs, and tons of shop updates.

Feel free to follow along with the challenge on IG (#mermay) and wish me luck in leveling up!
