Inktober 2018

This year, for Inktober, I am doing illustrations in Procreate, a drawing app for the iPad. The illustrations are loosely a folk art theme, being inspired by Liz Kohler Brown’s classes on Skillshare.

These are the first 8 days…thank you for visiting 💜

Meet the Artist

I’m Amanda…I rediscovered art about 5 years ago, a year after being diagnosed with advanced cancer. I love working with watercolour and pen, and my style is more illustrative than painterly. I draw everything and anything. Recently I have got back into digital art, using an iPad Pro. I have an Etsy Shop where I sell small pieces of original art and handmade cards. Note: it is very rare to see a photo of me!

A Little Sketchbook of Fruit

Over the last couple of months, I have been doing little watercolour and pen sketches in various sketchbooks based around different themes. They really help me to start my day as I tend to do them in the morning. My go to watercolours is the “Sakura Koi Watercolors Pocket Field Sketch Box” and my favourite pens (at the moment, because I’m a fickle little bunny) are Sakura Pigma Microns (and no, I’m not affiliated to Sakura in any way).
