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.

Latest in June/July 2019 

We managed to raise £300 for Mousehole Wildbird 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, Mousehole 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  (Mousehole 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... !
