That is amazing! I absolutely love it!

I just started painting (with watercolors), and I'm having a lot of fun with it. I agree that showing my paintings to people is a little intimidating at first, but it is really nice to get comments and feedback from people. You should definitely try some bigger pictures!

Mountains and Clouds: Super cool that you make your own reeds! Eben when I played clarinet all the time, it never occurred to me to try to make my own.

Lovely Miss: Those are beautiful paintings! I really like the wildflower/daisy one!

roler: It's a Tree of Love, but April Fool's Day changed "love" to "eat" and I guess it never changed back? Haha but thank you for all of the kind words. Smiley Those Easter eggs are awesome! I love how bright they are!

Prompt: April Flash Mob
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Mushrooms Watercolor
Project Link:
Brief Description: Inspired by my favorite British author - Lewis Carroll, who wrote Alice in Wonderland. In Alice in Wonderland, mushrooms are pretty big imagery throughout, so I painted some mushrooms I thought would look right at home with the caterpillar perched on top.
Project Picture:


Prompt: Downton Abbey
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Tulips Watercolor
Project Link:
Brief Description: Inspired by the grounds of British castles, and the beautiful tulip beds in so many of them.
Project Picture:


Prompt: The Queen's English
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Daffodils Watercolor
Project Link:
Brief Description: Inspired by another of my favorite British authors - C.S. Lewis, who wrote The Chronicles of Narnia. Susan and Lucy were my role models growing up - their strength and intelligence were valued more than their beauty, and I loved that. In the movie, Queen Susan the gentle wears a crown of daffodils in the coronation scene.

Thanks for all the love, guys!

Here is the link for the how-to I used to figure out the pattern tiling, for those of you that were wondering about that: http://www.designsponge.com/2008/05/welcome-julia-and-how-to-make-a-repeat-pattern.html

It didn't work so great with the watercolor paper (too thick) but thinner paper would probably work really well.

As for artsy-crafty play time, I would LOVE to get together with anyone local! I'm in Orange County, California, if anyone else is close by! (Do we have a board for local meetups? If so, how have I missed it for this long? If not, WHY NOT?!)

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Care of Magical Creatures
SPEW:
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Mushrooms Watercolor
Project Page Link:
Brief Description: As much as I love the Harry Potter universe, when I think of gnomes, I don't think of the potato-headed guys from the books. I think of the little fat dudes in the bright red or green waistcoats that sit on peoples' front lawns. That said, I painted some red-topped mushrooms that always seem to hang out with those type of gnomes (do they live in them? under them? I don't even know! But they always seem to be there!).
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration
SPEW:
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Wild and Free.
Project Page Link:
Brief Description: I wanted to make a quote framed by a flowery wreath. My quill (in this case, my paint brush) seems to be working wonderfully! Smiley
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott Bean - Red Apple
SPEW:
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Floral Pattern
Project Page Link:
Brief Description: This was an experiment in pattern-making. If you tile the image, it is a repeating pattern. It is inspired by all of the flowers that were braided into Rapunzel's hair in the movie Tangled!
