Charity Sales of Paintings & Illustrations
I have completed a number of Challenges, I find them great to get me back into the discipline of daily drawing, they push my ability to draw on demand forwards for a variety of reasons.
We managed to raise £300 for a local bird hospital selling the paintings I created during my June 30 day challenge.
September Challenge 2014
Following the success of my charity auctions for my daughter Ellie and the Meningitis Research Foundation. I devised a little challenge for myself....I planned to paint 30 small paintings in 30 days. I succeeded!
I made them affordable and had the potential of raising £300 for charity (we actually raised £560). The challenge started on the 1st of September 2014. All the paintings went out to my priority mailing list as soon as they were completed and I also posted them on facebook before the end of the day. The paintings were sold with a percentage split between my 3 chosen charities, A local Bird Hospital, Cornwall Wildlife Trust, Compassion in World Farming.
November Challenge 2014
This was the second 30 Day Challenge that I devised for myself....Last time I planned to paint 1 painting a day for 30 days this time it was to be 3 a day. I know I am a little crazy but it was supposed to be a challenge and there wasnt another 30 day month until April!
Most of the paintings sold I raised £900 for the charities (A Local Bird Hospital, Cornwall Wildlife Trust, Compassion in World Farming).
My last challenge was 100 things wild in November of 2015 in which I made 100 paintings in 100 days. Below is a sample of the paintings I made.
This year I am combining my challenge of 30 Paintings in 30 Days with the Wildlife Trusts #30DaysWild Campaign... the paintings will be shared each day on social media...any encouragement will be very welcome... !
