Fish fish fish!

My new obsession lately has been to paint fish, so I thought I'd share with ya'll some of the paintings I've done recently. It's been fun experimenting and finding new techniques to paint these fish, I'll post process pics of each individual fish in later posts =)

Original llama watercolor pen sketch

This was a super fun piece, I drew the llama in pen (BIC pen) and added some watercolor to make this painting really stand out. The mountains at the bottom are of Nepal.

It was really fun to paint this one because I took my paints outdoors and sat outside in the warm sun painting =)

I'm selling the original artwork on my etsy shop for $25 here. (I can include a frame for $5 extra).

Watercolor Lettering Painting - Something Beautiful is on the Horizon

I got some new watercolor paints and wanted to do something with this beautiful blue. This is what I came up with - a inspirational quote that says "Something Beautiful is on the Horizon".

Vintage Chanel Watercolor

I saw this vintage Chanel purse and just had to paint it. It was early on Sunday morning and I was in a happy mood so I decided to add flowers to the painting. It was really fun to paint and I like how happy it turned out.

On my etsy shop, painting AND frame included for $28 here.

Watercolor Trout - Hipster Art

I wanted start a series of paintings that were pretty much monochromatic and hunting related, so first up was this trout! I love using color so even though this turquoise color is so gorgeous and vibrant, I missed using OTHER colors and couldn't help but add on the tiniest touch of pink to it's body. I really liked how this turned out overall since I've never painted a fish before.

On my etsy shop WITH the frame included for $28 here.

Neon Ombre Mason Jar - Summer Inspired

I did this last weekend and really love how this turned out! I was thinking how it was spring and it's pretty soon going to be summer, so I wanted to do a jar that reflected these colors.

The pictures don't even come close to capturing how gorgeous this came out in real life, I can't stop staring at this jar!

I'm selling this jar for $17 on my etsy shop here.

Neon Pink Ombre Mason Jar

I spent part of this weekend making this mason jar, I LOVE painting mason jars it's sooo fun! This one has a slight ombre effect with white spray paint highlighting the words and contrasting nicely with the neon pin. I then frayed the edges of a gorgeous Chinese floral fabric and sewed on little seed beads to add a fun touch to the neck of the jar.

Overall I really liked how this turned out and can't wait to make a couple more similar to this...I want to use bigger beads next time though because it's so painstakingly slow to sew the tiny seed beads. I'm also going to play around with different colored jars.

Let me know what you guys think of it or if there's any color schemes you would like to see!

I'm selling this on my etsy for $17 which you can get here.
