I hope you had a good day. We had a long day at the zoo today and then a 2 1/2 hour drive home, (an hour longer than it should have been). So I am a bit tired and I have a quick painting tonight. Here is my watercolor for day #212.
Not sure what this one is about but it is a completed watercolor. : ) I'm off to eat a late dinner and hang with the family. Thanks for stopping by.
I have a quick post tonight. Here is my watercolor for day #211.
Hope you had a good day. We are in San Diego tonight with the family. We went to the Safari Park Zoo today and then had a nice dinner. I am super tired now from spending the day in the sun, so that will be all for me.
I hope you had a good day. Here is my watercolor for day #209.
Another simple one tonight. My sister and her family arrived today! We just got back from dinner and are now watching a movie together. They are trying to stay up a little later to adjust to our time zone(they are from the east coast). So that will be all for me.
I hope you had a good day. Here is my watercolor for day #207.
Lots of cleaning going on today, not fun, but necessary. More of the same tonight but I am not thrilled with this one. I think I was trying a little to hard and didn't let the brush just flow by itself.
I hope your Thursday went well. Here is my watercolor for day #205.
Another quick abstract tonight. I really like the way these look. Simple is my thing, or the thing I'm drawn to at least, for the paintings. That's all for now, really tired again and looking forward to unwind a bit.
I hope you had a good day. Here is my watercolor for day #204.
A nice simple one tonight. I worked in Alyssa's room again today and I am beat. I am doing a Venetian Plaster technique on the walls. I love the way it looks but it is quite the workout. I always forget about that, until I start it up all over again. : ) A couple more days of work and the walls should be done.
That's all for now. Have a great night and thanks for stopping by.
I hope you had a good day. Here is my watercolor for day #202.
I have my watercolor and inspiration for you tonight. Chris picked up a few of these shells for me when we walked on the beach last week. It thought it would be nice to paint from an inspiration tonight.
We have a lot of work going on around here again. I started working on Alyssa's room because my sister and her family arrive next week and we will use her room for the adults. We also have a huge landscaping project going on. Lots of stuff to keep me busy and stressed. : ) I just look forward to the day when things are done. (Not sure if that ever happens...but hopefully).
I hope you had a good day. Here is my watercolor for day #196.
A nice quick one tonight. I saturated the paper with water and then did my stroke. I was planning on adding more but I liked the way that the paint spread with this one stroke so I decide to leave it alone.
That's all for now. Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.
I hope you had a good Monday. Lots of work going on around here. New landscaping, new sewer pipe and still trying to organize and finish the inside. I still feel like it doesn't seem like it will ever end but I think that is the norm. Here is what I have for you tonight, my watercolor for day #195.
I started with a background similar to yesterday's thinking I would try and add a design. I added some design details and didn't care for it, so I brushed over it with a watered brush. This has worked in the past and I liked the result. I can say that I am not very happy with the result tonight. I didn't want to start over though, because I am trying to stick to that principle. So I am not thrilled with tonight's painting but that's the way it goes.
I hope you had a good weekend. Here is my watercolor for day #194.
Just a background tonight. I liked they way this one looked and I didn't want to add anything to it, and perhaps make a mistake, so I left it as is. I like the color and texture. That's all for tonight.
I hope you had a good day. It's very busy around here and I can't seem to get a handle on everything. There is definitely not enough hours in the day. : ) Here is what I have for you tonight, my watercolor for day #191.
I really like tonight's painting. It's fun and bright and makes me smile. I hope you enjoy this one as well. That's all for tonight. Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.
I hope your day was good. Here is my watercolor for day #188.
A background painting for tonight. I was working on a base, that could then have a different pattern or image drawn on top of it. I knew I just wanted to start with different base ideas tonight. I am going to try and work on ideas for fabrics, so then I can get them printed and use them in my bags. We'll see how it goes. That's all for now.
I hope you had a good Sunday. We are back home, yeah! I took Mols and Han to the doctor and they have tonsillitis. Mols ears are also infected, so they got antibiotics. I am happy they will feel better soon. I still have a little bit of a sore throat but the doctor thought I got through most of it. Lots of unpacking to do and we got some done tonight, but there is still lots to do. Here is what I have for you tonight, watercolor #187.
Similar idea again as the last few evenings. That's all for now. I am pretty tired and hopefully will get a good nights sleep now that I am in my own bed. : )
Happy 4th of July! I hope you are having a great day of celebrating and relaxing. Here is my watercolor for day #185.
An obvious choice for me. I wish I could say we are all feeling better but it is not the case. I started to feel better today but it hit me like a rock tonight. So that will be all for me tonight. Have a great night.
I hope you had a good day. Today we drove from Colorado to Moab, Utah. I can honestly say it was one of the most spectacular views I have seen. Every turn there was another beautiful sight. I probably took 1000 photos, thank goodness for digital photos. : ) That was my inspiration for tonight's watercolor #184.
Once again this painting does not do any justice to the views I had today. I am still battling this cold and am finding it hard to stand up and do anything. I hope I wake up tomorrow feeling better.
Here is one shot I took with my iPad to show you one of the views. Not the best clarity on the iPad but you get the idea.
I hope you had a good day. We are in Aurora, Colorado tonight. We got here in good time but to many of us are sick, to go out and do anything. It's to bad because we would have liked to go around and maybe see a little bit if Denver. Hopefully there will be another time. Here is what I have for tonight, watercolor #183.
Color and pen and ink. These are my favorites overall, so I think I will focus on these again, at least when I have the time. That's all for me, I am starting to get a migraine and need to get some rest.
I hope you had a good day. We are in Junction City, Kansas tonight. Molly and I are a little under the weather. I think Mols is worse than me now. : ( It stinks to be sick while traveling. Hope fully she will feel better tomorrow. Here is my painting for day #182.
A little watercolor and pen and ink. A little more interesting than the least few nights, I think.
