100-Day Project: Day 4 - Water

The prompt today was: Water.  At first I considered the "backside of water," but then I decided to focus on a cool water feature at one of my favorite tiki bars, the Tonga Hut.  Since I'm there just about every week for Tiki Tuesday (in an effort to cross off all the drinks on my Grog Log), I stare at this fountain quite a bit.  Since I've been back with my family in New York for the past week and a half, I've missed two Tiki Tuesdays in a row. Suffice it to say, I can't wait to get back to LA next week so I can resume sipping on delicious cocktails. Plus the weather's much nicer (duh).

Here's my interpretation of the fountain at the bar.  If I had more time, I probably would have added in all of the liquor bottles but I don't want to burn myself out on these 100-day challenge projects just yet!  Plus I have real work that needs to get done today. One thing to note - this is the first day I haven't used a perfect grid for the repeat.  The top/bottom of my sketch allowed me to "slip" the design half way for the repeat on the bottom.  I think I'm going to continue to play around with other techniques to skew my patterns throughout this challenge just so I can learn how to add more variety into the mix.

In case you're new to this project and want to know exactly what it's all about, check out the post I made on Day 1 of The 100-Day Project.
