#365DaysOfArtPBQChallenge Week 8, #50-56

#50:  Design a pattern from the grid.  

I so wanted this to be spectacular.  First attempt got screwed up.  Then I used my colored pencils and was getting an idea about a tessellating design.  Didn’t get there, but liked it better

#51: Add patterns to the vases

I enjoyed this one.  Not spectacular, but fun.

#52:  Continue the pattern

These are always fun. I really want to get some watercolors to enjoy these a bit more.

#53:  Design a pair of trousers

Good thing I didn’t pursue fashion design.  Rainbow pants are everyone’s favorite…NOT.

 #54: Add trees to the forest

I liked this one.  Some of the trees don’t quite fit, but I had fun with them.

#55:  What has the pen just finished drawing

I thought writing so this is what I am thinking.

#56:  Fill the bowl with a mixture of colorful fresh fruit

Kind of enjoyed this, but feeling like I should add a few more.

Well not the best, but not the worst!  It was a busy week professionally, so to get this done in the in between time felt good.   This week will be more relaxed and I may get some of these things I’d like to have…a calligraphy pen or watercolors.

Also, expecting to finish my OMG…keep your fingers crossed!

    Enjoyed your doodling and why not rainbow pants, they would have been great in the 70's…(smiling)

    You're doing well on keeping up to date. I'm behind, a whole week, and with a trip coming up, I think I'll be falling even further behind. I need to work on this tonight while I'm watching a show. I like what you've done! I would think rainbow pants would be just the thing these days – ha! I do have an idea for the pants, based on many of the ski suits I saw this weekend. It'll be a stunner, just you wait!

      I decided to just move on from those weeks. Yes, travel will make it slower and maybe then you again skip the travel week and pick up later. Yes, the rainbow pants would be a kick, but not for me… Can’t wait to see your ski-suit pants. Rose is trying to get a gang at QuiltCon next year. Right now I am planning on it!

    It's so much fun to see what you're doing with these. They all look like winners to me!

      Oh, Nancy, you are too kind. They certainly are fun and often challenging in ways I didn't expect.

    I am enjoying watching you participate in this challenge and you're doing great. I think our QuiltCon crew should be wearing these rainbow pants; that would be an appearance.
