Day 20….this is what happens when you get distracted 

Lol, I sat down to paint a rose but, but somewhere along the way I got distracted by the way the paint colors were flowing and bleeding into each other. Whoopsie 🙂 

There I a flower shaped thingy in there, but it doesn’t look like any rose I have ever seen. 🙂 

Day 19…By the pool

Lol, I’m not big on pools in general, so I painted a mountain pool. I think a swimming pool might have been easier. 🙂 

Day 18….Furry Friends 

My poor dog… I chased her around the house to get a photo for today’s topic. She was so confused by time I got a decent photo. She is still giving me worried looks every time I pass near her. 

I don’t paint dogs often and it kind of shows. Especially since I fell back on my stand by of grabbing my colored pencils when the painting started sliding sideways. 

Whole thing looks a little caddywampus if you ask me, but her eyes kind of look right. 

Day 17…. Welcome to my world

There are many things I like about being an artist. But one of the things I actually love is the way my brain works…. although at times I am pretty sure I have a few loose screws to say the least. 

Tonight’s painting is a perfect example of “WTH”. #WORLDWATERCOLORMONTH has an official set of daily prompts you can do if you want to or you can use them on days when you just can’t think of anything to paint. 

So today’s prompt was “Running Wild” just vague enough to jump start your creativity.

So here is what happened when I thought about Running Wild. 

Running down the street waving my arms….Running…  Wild horses… Running.. Wild animals.. I like animals.. I love giraffes… Giraffes look hysterical when they run… I’m gonna look up running giraffes…. OMG that giraffe has the funniest look on his face. 

Welcome to my world. 🙂 

Day 16… Trees

Well it was hit and miss for a bit…. Hot Mess doesn’t even describe it. But I think I ended up with a good painting. It has slight glow look that is kind of cool.  I like how it turned out, although next time I would try not to make it so dark. 🙂
