Pattern-A-Day #5

Something fresh for Pattern #5 the December Pattern-a-Day Challenge with A is for Anika!. This is 1/2 of an A4 moleskine page, so a bit more than 6" x 9" in size.

So I thought I would tell you a little about each pattern. First I painted the pink and then the blue. There was more paint on my brush when I painted the darker blue and the lighter blue is actually the same blue but unintentionally there was more water on the brush. I painted this with a #6 round brush. 

I see a 1970's retro wallpaper or fabric. What do you see in this pattern? I find it interesting that patterns evoke emotions or memories or little visions. They are simple yet complex. Sometimes the prettiest fabrics are simple backgrounds with one color of polka dots.

This is really pretty and bright. Thank you for hinting to me that you were doing this project in advance to I had time to digest and ponder it before diving in! Will you fill the whole moleskine with just patterns you think?

Hanna, I started thinking about this project back in October when I started to notice Anika's patterns on instagram and got curious. But I started working in this A4 Moleskine watercolor journal perhaps a year ago with abstract watercoloring. So it is already 3/4 full. I will paint patterns on the rest of the pages and then go and work on the backs of a lot of pages (that's the benefit of heavy watercolor paper, you can use both sides) and then move on to the Fabriano watercolor paper I brought back from Italy. Each pattern will be about 6" x 9" in size.

Thanks for sharing Tammy. I jumped right in on this challenge. I'm pushing myself to play with markers this month. Maybe watercolors in January. Love seeing what everyone is creating. I love patterns!
