My project is to do a small painting everyday for a year, that's 365 8" x 6" oil paintings, a huge undertaking that I am hoping you can support.

 I am surrounded by a fantastic and varied landscape in South Wales but during the year I have an artist residency in Cornwall, as well as painting trips planned to Devon, North Wales, The Malverns and possibly Scotland and London.

As well as showing the locations I travel to during the year, the paintings will also document the changing seasons and weather conditions. I am not afraid of painting in extreme weather so you can expect moody skies, heavy rain, blue skies and possibly snow!

Your kickstarter funding would help me achieve this project by buying art materials, painting boards, covering travel costs and helping me put on a final exhibition for all 365 paintings. In return you will have a unique painting that would usually sell for £175 alongside updates on my progress and an invite to the final exhibition. 

Thank you for your support!

 I've reached my funding target! So now any pledges from now on will help me travel further to vary the views, put on a great exhibition and possibly a book to accompany the project.

Risks and challenges

My biggest challenge will be the weather, but with careful planning I hope to still paint in the extremes especially as showing the changing conditions is a major aspect of the project.

Being inspired by the landscape should not be a problem but I do plan to focus on different aspects of views to keep the paintings fresh and exciting to do.

There is a risk that I might miss the occasional day due to illness or other unforeseen circumstances but in that situation I will aim to resume painting as soon as possible and do additional paintings as necessary to complete the project within the time.
