    Pattern-A-Day #9 - 12

    “They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn't.
    I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.”
    Frida Kahlo


    Designing patterns in watercolor in the Moleskine A4 watercolor journal. These are the first four patterns for the December Pattern-a-Day Challenge with A is for AnikaEach pattern is about 6" wide x 9" tall or half of the page.

    Here's the part where I talk about all of the patterns. The Pink + Orange marks are random brush impressions. I like this a lot. The teal + purple hourglass shapes {I'm thinking there's another name for this type of 70's retro pattern} are fun to paint. I'd like to explore this idea further in doodles. The pink + green random wiggles were my daughter's idea. She drew the concept on scrap paper - the idea was to paint a continuous line and have it work back in on itself but not really swirls. It was harder than it looks! This might be fun to explore too. The rainbow circle chains were fun to paint. I like when the paint pulls into the next circle. I alternated the color as I went down the page for each chain.

    Go see all of the patterns.

    Love the circle chain pattern! When I did a similar pattern I was inspired by a chain your daughter drew and you posted a few weeks ago.
