Delightful: Calendar Challenge Update

This was such a beautiful experience for me. I had a delightful time making these patterns, so I titled this project the same. 

Here's a shot of my watercolors:

I didn't have a mood board because I like to relax when painting watercolors and a mood board would have caused me to think too much. I went a little overboard, but watercolor painting is a relaxing experience for me, so I just let these motifs flow out.

Here are the motifs I chose to use for my pattern:

Here's my first set of color groups:

And here's my second two groups:

I ended up adding a darker background to my second color theme. Here are my final patterns:
