9x9 challenge UPDATE!

If you don't know what the heck the "9x9 Challenge" is, please take a quick 2 minutes to catch up here.


I've posted 15/81 and it's going just okay, if I'm being honest. This second color palette is just not inspiring me as much as the first one was!


There are two big changes to the challenge that you should know about. The first is that I am pulling in an additional color from the previous palette. So, instead of six colors (plus black + white), there will be seven to help make the transition from palette to palette more smooth and give me a liiiiitle more to work with.


The second change was in the prompt category. To recap, the original nine things that I chose were:

  1. Water

  2. Books

  3. Art History

  4. Hiking

  5. Florals

  6. Sparklets (quotes/sayings + hand lettering)

  7. Interiors (lovely textiles, furniture, etc.)

  8. Favorite Beverages (I’ll change up the beverage between palette changes, sometimes I might do wine, sometimes coffee, etc.)

  9. Local produce (because I feel like giving myself “food” wouldn’t be limiting enough, and this way I can set up a still life!)

But I decided on swapping out "Interiors" for "Portraits" because interiors are more fun for me to physically move through/design than depict in a drawing/painting. I may change my mind and just keep this category a "free-space" and surprise you with a new prompt each palette change (ha!). Or maybe, I'll take a poll and let you all pick - stay tuned!


To see all 15, head over to my Instagram feed! Don't hesitate to comment or send me an email to let me know which are your favorite so that I can add it to the print shop.


I hope you're enjoying following along so far!
