People - flying kite - Sandee Setliff

Last Saturday, I spent the early afternoon watching people fly kites out at the 18th Annual Kite Festival in Flat Rock, NC I did discover that doing watercolor sketches of people running around "on the fly" was just too hard for me, so I water colored the background and took some photos to draw from of the kite flyers. It's a mixture of Peerless Watercolors, Inktense Blocks, and Micron Pen.

"Red Kite"


  1. Love this painting Sandee, I can feel the fun of flying the kite.

  2. What a nice way to enjoy a day!
    And lovely painting, too. :)

  3. I would think that kite flying is difficult to capture on paper in person. You had a great idea and it made a super painting.

  4. This is so delightfully full of color and fun. I feel as though I am running across the grass with him.
