World Watercolor Month 2022 Day 4; ICAD2022 Day 32

Standard

Today’s WWM prompt is patriotic. Happy 4th!

Ms. Liberty

Watercolorists, do you tape down your paper when you paint? What kind of tape do you use? I have some blue painter’s tape, and it takes paper with it when I peel it off.

Today’s ICAD prompt is quatrefoil or ogee. I had to look those up. I felt that I’d seen ogee worked into zentangle patterns, so I started out by making an ogee grid with onamato. (I used one of my sky fails from yesterday as the background so it would qualify for WWM.) Then I realized that part of the A.L.F. pattern by Anneke de Reijke would fill the ovals nicely.

I think it looks like peacocks playing peek-a-boo.

Today’s ICAD prompt is sky. Skies are challenging for me in watercolor. Here is my best attempt of three tries:

ICAD2022 Day 31; World Watercolor Month 2022 Day 1

Standard

For the month of July, I will be participating in both the Index-Card-a-Day Challenge and World Watercolor Month. My intention is to make 31 small watercolor paintings on an index-card-sized piece of watercolor paper. We’ll see how many actually happen. I will used either an ICAD prompt or a WWM, whichever tickles my fancy, or something totally random.

Today I chose a mini-challenge for this week from the ICAD prompts: draw a pattern in black & white, which immediately brought zentangle to mind. My zentangle Facebook group, Tangle All Around, is also participating in ICAD, so I checked out some patterns on their page and selected a new one to me, Ramble by Carolyn Dorfman. I decided to add some color to it with water color paints so it would qualify for WWM.

ICAD2022 Day 30

Standard

I used a smaller nib so that I could fit all the words in. And I used a lined index card to make it easier.

Oh no. I’ve missed too many days. I wanted to get through the alphabet by the end of June. I’m going to have to double and triple up.
