Facebook 52 Illustrations Challenge 2016

In 2014 Tania McCartney created the The 52-weeks Illustration Challenge on Facebook
She said For 2014, I wanted to set myself a challenge – to hone my skills and saturate myself with art. Won’t you join me?
Free yourself, get creative and maybe even face your fears {just like me}.”

The Challenge is now entering its third year and I have decided that this year I will try to incorporate my Persona Dolls into the weekly theme if possible and post the resulting pictures here once a month.I intend to try a variety of art media and do one picture each week which includes my Persona Dolls (possibly I will do pictures of other subjects for each theme as well)
There are 52 weekly themes and each new theme begins on a Wednesday
The themes for January are 
Fancy dress 6/1, Outdoors 13/1, Theme park 20/1 and Swimming 27/1.
Here are my January responses.
