Project 365, Watercolor, Day #304

Happy Halloween!

I hope you are having a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #304.


An obvious choice for the day.  I did write Happy Halloween in one continuous free hand line, except for the 'n' part, where I had to go off the paper.  I think it came out pretty nice.  The pumpkins and bat were just quick sketches with the pen.  That's all for me.  I am getting dinner ready and waiting for the '4' kids we have come by.  : )  We really don't get a lot of kids but I have candy just in case.

Happy Halloween and enjoy your evening!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #303

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #303.


I have another pumpkin tonight but this one was drawn with one continuing line.  I put the pen down and quickly drew the pumpkin.  I like playing with lines like that and I haven't done it in a while.  It's cool to see what you can come up with.  That will be all for now.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #302

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #302.


I let the inks spread in the water again for this one.  It reminds me of tie-dying and I think it came out kind of cool.  That's all for me tonight.  Have a good evening!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #301

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #301.


I changed things up a bit tonight.  It actually came about from a happy accident, which is always nice.  I was getting tired so I didn't think I would do that much but I ended up spending more time on it.  I am pretty happy with the outcome.  That's all for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by and have a good evening. 

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #300

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #300.


An underwater look tonight.  I really liked the background and wanted to add just a few simple elements.  I added just the two and decided to stop there because I wasn't sure what else to add.  I am happy with the outcome.  That will be all for tonight.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #299

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Sunday.  Here is my watercolor for day #299.


A bright one tonight.  Simple and fun.  I plan on getting to bed early tonight. : ).  Today was a day of cleaning up after the party, and going to a play at the high school with Mols.  I thought I might have snuck in a nap, but that didn't happen, so I want to make sure I get to bed early.  That's it for me then. Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly


Project 365, Watercolor, Day #298

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Saturday.  Tonight we had our Halloween party.  It was a get together of friends and their kids, that we haven't seen in a while.  I was up at 7am, even though I would have liked to have slept in, I just couldn't sleep.  So I got up and started cleaning and then went on to all the cooking and running to stores I had to do.  Well before I knew it it was time to hope in the shower really quick and get dressed before the guests arrived.  Everyone had a great time and it was so nice to see everyone again.  When everyone left I started putting food away and cleaning up.  I was just about done and then looked at the time...it was 1:30in the morning.  Yikes!  How did that happen?  I had no idea it was that late.  I grabbed painting supplies and did my painting.  Here is my watercolor for day #298.


Well 'technically' this was not painted on Saturday but it is still Saturday to me because I haven't gone to bed yet.  Crazy long day but it was a great one!  A happy jack-o-lantern smile for you tonight.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #297

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #297.


I have a late one tonight.  We are having a Halloween party tomorrow night and I am busy getting things ready for that.  I decide on a quick painting with some swirls and dots.  Simple but not to bad.  

That's all for me.  I started getting a migraine not to long ago, so I need to see if I can get rid of it, perhaps some sleep might help.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #296

I Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #296.


Today is Alyssa's 20th birthday.  I can't believe my first born is 20.  Where does the time go??  I know everyone always says that, but really?  Well, Alyssa loves frogs so I thought that I would paint one for her tonight.  I wanted to do the same fun style as my owl from last night.  I really like the way it came out and so did Alyssa.  I made a copy of it and turned it into a card for her.  She said he was so cute.  Alyssa is quite the artist, so it's always nice to hear that vote of confidence from her.

Well that's all for me.  Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #295

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #295.


I had a little more time to spend tonight and I wanted to do a fun drawing.  I hope you like this whimsical owl.  I had fun painting it and I like the way it turned out.  That's all for now, I need to go and find the glue gun for a project for Mols.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good one.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #294

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #294.


I am not really sure what this is.  I started out with just a swish and then added the background.  I liked that and then played with adding more water to have it bleed out more.  I let it dry and was going to leave it like that, but then added the pen.  Well, I don't like it now that I added the pen.  I wanted to start over but that is against my policy for this project.  There's always something to learn . That's what I have for you tonight.   Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #293

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #293.


I brought the pumpkins back again.  I really like painting these and just love how they turn out.  Rather easy design but the watercoloring is the fun part.  That will be all for me tonight.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #292

Hello,

I hope you had a good weekend.  Here is my watercolor for day #292.


A big flower pattern tonight.  Not sure where the inspiration came from because I am really tired and started out thinking I would do a quick one.  It took a little longer but I like the result.  That's all for now, I'm off to bed.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #291

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Saturday.  Here is my watercolor for day #291.  


We watched Up tonight and I was inspired by Carl and Ellie's house.  I wanted to do a simple colorblock with lots of color.  That's all for tonight.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #290

Hello,

I hope you had a good day. Here is my watercolor for day #290.


A simple one tonight.  I played a little with the background and I liked the way it came out so I wanted to add just a few line details.  

It's Molly's 15th birthday today.  It's hard to believe.  She requested one of my cakes.  I haven't made one like this in a bit because of the construction and such.  She likes to be surprised, so this is what I did for her this year.


She loves pandas and was totally surprised when she got home from school.  I'm always surprised how the cakes turn out too.  I don't always know what I am doing, so to see the end result is great.  

That's all for tonight.  Hanging with Mols and watching a movie.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #289

Hello,

I hope you had a good night.  Here is my watercolor for day #289.


Back to the Halloween theme.  I think I might have started to early, because I am pretty sure I am going to run out of ideas before I get to the 31st.  We'll see what happens.  That's all for tonight.  I am so tired because I was up for a few hours last night or should I say this morning.   I hate it when that happens, I can't fall back to sleep but I also can't get up and do anything.  Crazy.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #288

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my watercolor for day #288.


I wanted this to be abstract but also thinking that it could be part of the face of a jack-o-lantern.  It's an askewed face but that's what I wanted.  I am happy with this one and I like the coloring in the background.

Hope you have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

I wanted to do a colorful, simple, fun pattern tonight.  I think this looks good.  That's all again for me, not much to say lately.  Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #285

Hello,

I hope you had a good weekend.  Here is my watercolor for day #285.


Back to the Halloween theme tonight and my take on a skull.  Not to bad for my first skull.  I think it fits in well with the rest of my Halloween paintings.  That will be all for me tonight.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #282

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #282.


This is an odd one tonight.  I would like to say they are ghosts to go along with the Halloween theme I have been doing, but I don't think they really fit the bill.  This is not my favorite one but its ok.  I think I'll try moving on to something different tomorrow.  That's all for now.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #281

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #281.


I was having a hard time thinking of something to paint, so I asked the girls for ideas.  I got some good ones but I knew I would have a hard time painting some of them.  I decided to do an abstract cat.  It's ok but not my favorite.  I think I like th paintings better when I use pen in them as well.  I like the contrast of color and the use of the lines.  

That will be all for me tonight.  Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #280.


Same theme again tonight.  My interpretation of a hairy spider, not to bad.  I think it goes along with my other paintings so far.  That will be all for me.  Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #278

Hello,

I hope you had a good weekend.  Here is my watercolor for day #278.


We have been talking about having a Halloween party for a few weeks now, and we were talking about it again tonight, and that is where I got my idea from.  A little early for the spider web but I really like this one.  Simple but still good.  That's all for me. Have a great night and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Watercolor, Day #277

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #277.


Wanted to keep going with the same idea.  I like the simplicity of the watercoloring and leaving a little white space.  I usually tend to fill in the entire paper with some sort of color, so it is challenging to keep the open space.  

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

Take care,
Kelly

Working on a little of the same from the last few days.  Trying to think of new ideas but finding it hard to come up with new things.  That's all for now.  I hope you have a good weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my watercolor for day #275.



I really liked the way the watercoloring turned out in this one, so I didn't know if I wanted to add anything else.  I thought that maybe it would be to simple if I didn't add anything, so I added a couple of minimal elements.  I hope you enjoy this one.  Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,
Kelly
