Project 365, Watercolor, Day #240

Hello,

I hope you had a good day!  Here is my watercolor for day #240.



Nice bold color with a bit of pen added in.  I think the photo came out better because I got it done early enough to use the daylight.  It definitely shows truer to with the sunlight.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #239

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my watercolor for day #239.



A nice simple one tonight.  I didn't realize until after I was done, that it sort of looks like the Pepsi swirl.  Actually, I didn't realize it until Alyssa walked by and said something.  I was just thinking flag colors and nothing else.  Funny how that works. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #232.


A really quick one here.  I almost forgot to do one tonight.  Lots going on today and I went to the airport at 9:30pm to pick up one of Hannah's friends.  I was relaxing on the couch and it just popped into my head at 11:30pm that I didn't to my painting yet, so that's why a quick one tonight.  

Take care,
Kelly

Not sure where this one came from.  I did the background and then wasn't sure what to add, then the swirls came out.  That's all for now.

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #230

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #230.


We watched French Kiss tonight, so that is where I got my inspiration from tonight.   A rough abstract version of the Eiffel Tower.   If you have seen the movie, then you know.  It is one of my favorite movies and if you haven't seem it yet, I highly recommend it.  That's all for me.  Have a good night.

Take care,
Kelly

Changing it up a bit from the last few days.  : ).  I had a great quick escape with Chris to celebrate our anniversary.  It was a much needed break.  Home again and back to the norm again now.  That's all for tonight.

Take care,

Another simple one tonight.  I painted this one earlier this morning before Chris and I left for an early Anniversry, one night get away.  I am just writing this post before we had out to dinner.  We are enjoying some quality time at Disneyland.  Having a great day so far!  

Have a great night and thanks for stopping by.

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #223

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #223.


A little different tonight.  I got the line detail by scraping my nail on the watercolor paper and then adding more paint.  The nail marks just became highlighted and did not go away.  I came upon the technique by accident because I was trying to scrape off a little piece if lint and then found that the lines stayed.  Happy accidents as they say.

That's all for tonight.   I am saddened by the death of Robin Williams today.  It is such a great loss.  He brought smiles and laughter to so many and he will be missed.  

Take care,
Kelly

Hello, 

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #220.



Today is our last night with my sister and her family.  We just got back from watching the sunset on the beach.  We are going to hang a little bit more and maybe watch a movie, so that's all for me.  Have a great night.

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #219

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #219.


Something a little different tonight.  I am finding this 'watercolor' project more challenging than the 'butterfly' project I did last year.  It's all about creating something, so I can really change it to anything but I feel I need to stick with the one idea.  I think I like the butterflies better because I could make them out of anything and I liked the versatility in that.  The watercolors are nice but I am finding it hard to have a variety within the paintings.  I feel I am repeating a lot of the same designs. (I even think I said this before).  I'm not sure though and I definitely don't go back and double check, not enough time for that.  : ).  I'll keep plugging along and see where it takes me.

As always, thanks for stopping by.  Have a great night!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #218

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #218.



I had a little more time to work on this one today as compared to yesterday's, but I am so tired from yesterday, that it is almost hard to focus.  I went with simple brush strokes again.  I added a little color to the edges of the painting tonight, something I haven't done before.  I loaded up the brush and just dragged it along the edges and let the paint do it's work.  I like the way the it turned out.  Simple composition but I like the overall look.

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

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #217

Hello,

Here is my watercolor for day #217.



I just got home from taking my sister and her family to Disney California Adventure for the day.  We were gone for 16 hours, crazy.  I have five minutes to do my painting and post before midnight, so this is all I have for you for tonight.  

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

A similar design to a couple that I did a few days ago.  I like the little bit of white in these paintings, it adds a nice pop.

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #214

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Saturday.  Here is my watercolor for day #214.



I'm back to the bold color and adding the pen.  I like the way they look.  Simple but appealing to me.  

We spent the day driving around the Los Angeles are with my sister and her family showing them the sights.  It was fun, but of course we ran into a lot of the great LA traffic, that's the norm unfortunately.  I'm very tired from all the driving, so that's about all from me.

Take care,
Kelly
