Day 6 – 30 Days of Art 

I decided to sketch a few every day items today and use my favourite colour combo again for a little painting. I’m working on depth, and shading with these pictures. Items in every day life can sometimes be boring but when you try to draw them in real life it’s actually quite difficult. If I’m ever stuck for something to draw I look to what’s around me. There’s always something to draw in the house!


The girl is out of the Next catalogue I just happened to be flicking through during the day. I really loved the back ground and decided to do it in watercolour pencils. Fabric is really hard to do, so I really enjoyed doing the girls dress. Again I’m working on shading and also trying to get the proportions right, which is the hardest thing for me to figure out.

Totally loving the Happy Pear Dudes!

I love these guys! I’ve done a few of there recipes now and I particularly like he burritos! I’ve just watched this video and I think it’s a great idea for those of you who are crazy busy in the week and don’t have a tonne of time. I love leek and potato soup!

I love these guys….. and their accents! 😂

Other things I love

I love many different things. I love to sing, horse riding, reading and doing nails! I’m a fully qualified and insured nail tech and it’s one of my favourite things to do. It helped me stay creative even when I wasn’t able to find the time to paint or draw. I like to do natural nails the most, but acrylic extensions can be a lot of fun as well. 

Here are just a few of my recent favourites!

Day 5 – 30 Days of Art 

My journal is becoming more of a brain dump for my ideas as well as sparking creative flow. I’ve now not only got lists of what I would like to improve on but also what I want to try and a few ideas I could really get into! I’m not used to drawing buildings, I would normally lean to landscapes so improving in that aspect of my art I think will be of great help to me. As I’m trying to broaden my knowledge I’m finding more and more websites and artists that I enjoy watching/reading about. 

I really love the colour combination of Orange, Blue and White. It’s turning into a hot favourite of mine. Since my focus is becoming better at painting and drawing people, the colour combos are proving to be useful. As of yet I haven’t seen much of an improvement in people, in fact they still infuriate me 😂! But I’m hopeful you tube can help. 


Remember, I have many prints and original drawings for sale on my etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ChrissyTurleyArtist

Painting of the Day – Solitude 

Today I will be placing my painting of Solitude in the spot light.  Love this painting. I love the ‘quietness’ of it. The thought of being in a cabin somewhere remote under a beautiful night sky all alone makes me feel calm and relaxed. 

What would you do if you had the chance to get away? I’d be reading, hiking and just generally letting my mind wander. Of course I’d have my camera and my art journal with me. I wouldn’t want to miss anything inspiration that I would find.

If you would like to purchase Solitude, here is the direct link to my etsy listing.

Day 4 – Art Journal Entries

The beach. Oh, how I love it. The sound of the waves, dogs being walked, kids having fun. It’s one of my favourite places to be. 

Saundersfoot beach has a special place in our families hearts. It’s so peaceful and pretty. We go to the same hotel every time we go. We enjoy the long walks and the fact that it’s not too touristy…..yet. 

For the top left Canvas I used acrylic paint and used only the 3 colours Orange, Blue and White to create the whole piece. It is part of my 3 Colour Challenge Series where I limit my paintings to use only 3 colours. Having to mix colours and create new tones and shades using only 3 colours can really test an Artist. 

The purchase either of the two top peices of art or see any of my works you can visit my etsy store at https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/ChrissyTurleyArtist

Day 3 – 30. Day art journal

Isabelle’s eyes! This kid of mine is just amazing. She’s sweet and kind and clever. And her eyes just as amazing. So, I’m not great at faces. I do need to work on them – a lot! I’m breaking them down to components and then I’ll try to put them all together. 


Here are my angels eyes, not perfectly done but I don’t think it’s a bad go. I especially love the purple eye were I have only used red, blue and white Acrylic paint to produce this. I am fascinated with only using 3 colours to create a painting.
