Project 365, Watercolor, Day #181

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  We are in Missouri now, just outside of St. Louis.  I have a quick post because the wifi is not the best and I used up my data.  : ). Here is my watercolor for day #181.


An oddball painting tonight.  That's all for now.  Have a great night!

Take care,

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #180

Hello,

I hope you had a good Sunday.  We are in Nashville tonight.  We had a 6 1/2 hour drive today and it went well, just a long one.  We are sitting outside now and relaxing a bit and I just finished my painting.  Here is my watercolor for day #180.


I did a wash of color for the background first, then I added the tree and did a little outlining with pen.  Simple, that's how I like them.  

I guess that's all for now.  Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #179

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  We had a long day of traveling today and are settling in for the night.  We are all tired and ready for bed early tonight.  Here is my watercolor for day #179.


I just let the watercolors spread around tonight.  I lifted the paper and tilted it a bit, to play with the direction that the paint was spreading.

That's all for tonight.  I am super tired and we have an even longer day of traveling tomorrow.  

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  I have a late night painting for you.  Here is my watercolor for day #175.


A saw a commercial for a cake decorating show that had jellyfish on it, so that's where I got my inspiration from.  Just a couple of jellyfish floating for tonight.

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #174

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my watercolor for day #174.



I had a little help from my 3 year old nephew tonight.  He was asking what I was doing and then I showed him a few things and then he helped pick my colors.  He was very excited and then painted a few pictures himself.  Here are his paintings.


He painted his parents cars and then his house.  Aren't they great!  

That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!

Take care,

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #172

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  It's getting late and I just realized the time.  We are trying to adjust to the time change and just getting used to it.   We got to Waves, NC today and met up with the families.  We are looking forward to a week together to celebrate Chris's parents 50th anniversary.  

Here is my watercolor for day #172.

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #171

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Friday.  I actually have to look at the calendar to see what day of the week it is, crazy but true.  The constant packing up each day makes me tend to loose track of things.  We are in North Carolina tonight, in the middle of the smoky mountains.  They are quite spectacular and I got a lot of great photos.  Here is my watercolor for day #171.



My interpretation of the view from the road.  Of course it doesn't due justice to the actual view but it's my little nod to it.  That's all for tonight.

I actually don't have a signal so I will try and keep posting, but it probably won't happen until tomorrow.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #170

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  We are in Nashville tonight.  Hannah gave me the inspiration idea for tonight's watercolor day #170.



A perfect idea for where we are.  She also wanted me to add a boot, but I didn't have one to look at.  This is her hat that I was looking at for inspiration.  It is just a quick rendering as her hat has a detailed straw pattern, that I did not want to attempt. : )

That's all for now.  Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #169

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #169.



We were out looking at the stars tonight and trying to point out the little and big dippers.  We were trying to figure it all out.  The fog rolled in and we couldn't really see to well.   So we decided to try again tomorrow. 

That's all for me.  Oh, I dropped the painting and picked it right up because I forgot to sign it, and picked it right up and signed it.  Well I signed it upside down.  What can you do at that point.  : )

That's all for tonight.  Have a great night!

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my watercolor for day #168.



We are in Arkansas tonight.  We are here for two nights, so it will be nice to have a break and not rush off in the morning.  Everyone is a little tired and we are trying to get used to this whole RV thing.  We are doing pretty good though.

That's all for now.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #167

 Hello, 

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my watercolor for day #167.



Just some nice simple colors tonight.  We are in Oklahoma City.  It was a very windy drive today and a little tiring for Chris.  We made it fine and had a relaxing evening.   It has been so light out at night, it has been weird.  At 9pm, it is still so light out that we think it is 6 or so.  We are a little off with the time change but enjoying ourselves : ) 

That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #164.


We had a long day of traveling.  Can you tell where we have been?  We drove a lot of the historic Route 66.  It was a great day and had some fun stops.  We are on our way across the country and I may have time to fill you in an bit more tomorrow.  I need to type while we are driving, then paint my picture later in the day.  So much going on, just hoping for a great vacation with the family!  

That's all for tonight.   Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by!

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #161

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my watercolor for day #161.



I was trying to watercolor without filling up all the space.  I have a need to 'fill in between the lines'.  I am not sure why but I love watercolors that have that open space as well.  I will try and work on that some more.

That's all for tonight.  Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #159

Hello,

I hope you had a great weekend!  Here is my watercolor for day #159.



Playing with the background again tonight.  I like blending the colors, to see what I can come up with.  I also played with adding a little detail.  I could have added more to fill up the page and create a bigger pattern but I wanted to add just the one element.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #158

Hello and Happy Saturday!

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my watercolor for day #158.



This focus was on the background.  It's a little hard to see in the photo but I love the dimension and texture.  Just a simple wave to finish it off.  Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!  Have a great night!

Take care,
Kelly

I spent a little more time tonight.  I have to make it until at least midnight again tonight.  Hannah has her junior prom tonight and I am on pick up.  Here is a pic of her and her friend Valeska.

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #156

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  I have a very late post, here is my watercolor for day #156.



I drew the lines first and then added the color.  I decided to just add color with a loaded, watery brush, so the colors would just blend together.  I kind of lost the lines but didn't want to redraw them.  I just finished making a clutch bag for one of Hannah's friends, for prom tomorrow.  Last minute, I know.  We just got the fabric and it has been so busy around here, but I got it finished.  : )

Well that's all!  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #154

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  I have a little different painting tonight.  Here is my watercolor for day #154.



A little bit of color and a little bit of pen and ink as well.  I like the detail and simplicity of this one.  I really am drawn to the pen and ink, so I think I need to work on that some more as well.

That's all for now.  Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #152

Hello,

I hope you are enjoying your Sunday.  Chris and I went for a walk on the beach today and I was inspired by the sand today.  Here is my watercolor for day #152.



The waves move the sand around and when they pull back they make this design.



I didn't look at the photo when I painted, maybe I should have pulled it up.  (I was just going by what I remembered.)  My painting doesn't really do it justice but isn't Mother Nature incredible?!  I just love how the sand looks!

That's all for today.  Enjoy the rest of your evening!

Take care,
Kelly
