Coco Chanel

Here is a new print of my original watercolor of the Coco Chanel perfume  bottle.
Coco was Chanel's nickname throughout her career.  When Jacques Polge's created the perfume in 1984, he chose the nickname as tribute to the legendary designer.  

The Fragrance is Mandarin, Orange Blossom, Bulgarian Rose and Indian Jasmine over notes of Tonka Bean, Sandalwood, and Vanilla.

"Simplicity is the Keynote of all true elegance." - Coco Chanel

Spring Must Haves!

There are a couple of things that are on my wish list for Spring.

This dress from Modcloth epitomizes Spring.  It reminds me of Monet's Waterlilies.

Watercolor Me Stylish Dress  $117.99

Earthies Rosarito Sandals in Jazzy Red $148.95 from Nordstom
  These  sandals are so cute, but still comfy enough for me to run after my 5 year old in them.

This Kate Spade New York Grand Street - Quinn Shopper is perfect for Spring! -$398.00

How stylish is this Kate Spade Tudor City - Lacey Zip Around Wallet?  - $198.00

Daisy by Marc Jacobs Perfume Bottle Print

I've added a new 5 in. x 7 in. print to my Etsy shop.  

Marc Jacobs designed a beautiful yet playful bottle for his Daisy perfume.

Daisy is a floral fragrance with violets providing a vintage edge.

Notes:  Strawberry, violet leaves, ruby red grapefruit, gardenia, violet petals, jasmine petals, musk, vanilla, white woods.

This is the Daisy watercolor painting in progress.

I'm using a couple of different brands of watercolor paints.  Each brand has some colors that I like.  Winsor & Newton, Aquarelle, Grumbacher Academy, and Sakura Koi.

The paper I used here is Aquarelle Arches 140 lb. 100% cotton cold pressed watercolor block.
