30 day art challenge: create daily

For the month of September, I am trying a 30 Day Art Challenge. A 30 day art challenge where I draw, paint, and create every day.

I love this idea as it makes you focus, and carve out time to make something everyday. And by trying to do something every day, you push and test your capabilities.


For week one, my supplies are a Strathmore Watercolor sketch pad, Big Brush pens, an aqua brush, and a Sharpie.

I am going to try and create a pattern or some repetitive design for each painting.

So far I am really enjoying the daily creative time. Even if I do not create something magnificent just the time I get to spend with the art supplies is enough to make me happy.

  1. Smitha,your work is fantastic you are really creative. looking at your i wonder why you spent for your academics? still i can’t imagine, full of academics and art. Great! Appajji created so many things, like paper sculpture, paintings using various media but hardly I appreciated him so sad to get a wife like me. Well all my blessings to you may achieve still more. You are lucky to have an encouraging and appreciating husband. GOD bless you ,AMMA
