Inspired by my Artist friend Alexandra Buckle who did a 50 print challenge in 2017. I decided to embark or my own version of a 50 painting challenge of architectural aspects found on local buildings.
The 49 50 Paintings Challenge
To complete 50 paintings of Architectural Aspects by 31st December 2018
Using #4950Paintings on Twitter and social media.
About the 49 50 Challenge
In January 2018 I set myself a challenge to create 50 paintings in a year. All the paintings are/will be 49 sq inches and are of architecture details. All the paintings will be 7″ x 7″ – that’s 49 square inches. Hence the title 49 50. I kept them small intentionally, with the focus on architectural aspects or details allowing me to bring out the details in the same way I can in my larger paintings.
Here's the first finished piece.
Scouting around Buckingham and surrounding area for inspiration. Each painting had a working title of a number and description so Number 1 is 1-Clock. (Including the numbers in the title allows me to keep tabs on where I am when I do a project of this nature.) I gave them more creative titles as I progressed but my first priority was to do the paintings. So 1-Clock now has a title of
1 Marking Time
Here are the rest of the paintings
I had a working list of Architectural Aspects. Here it is as a pdf
And here they all are on the 31st December, 2018!
