Doodlewash Prompt. Favorite color. Did you know that foxes are the only canine with partially retractable claws? From a reference photo by Malcolm Smith https://www.flickr.com/photos/143966226@N06/50004572781

And today’s Doodlewash Prompt. Favorite color. I don’t have a favorite color. I’m more about the way colors work together. One of my favorite color combos is Aussie Red Gold and Lavender.

Did you know that baby turtles use the natural light from the horizon to find their way to the sea? Car headlights, porch lights – any other light can cause them to go in the wrong direction.

And today’s Doodlewash Prompt. Texture. I decided this painting would be all about figuring out how to get the texture of sand. I’m not totally satisfied, but overall, I’m happy with it.

Did you know that bee-eaters only go after insects that are flying? They will ignore an insect that has landed.

World Watercolor Month


As you might know, this month I’ve been posting small daily doodles based on the Doodlewash prompts for June. I did all of these on one page and here you have them all.

Be sure to look for it at Doodlewash – along with other reviews, featured artists and tons of giveaways and cool items for sale only until the end of July. The goal is to raise money for The Dreaming Zebra Foundation and support arts education and our future artists.

Because July is (drum beat) …

Did you know that owls don’t have eyeballs? Their eyes are immobile tubes that boost depth perception. Fortunately, they can rotate their necks by 270 degrees in order to see in other directions.

And today’s doodle…

Doodlewash Prompt: Owl.

Even though they often act like a goofus, the Siamese cat has the soul of a tiger.

Did you know the farther from the center of the body, the darker the fur on a siamese cat, due to a temperature-sensitive enzyme? If you kept one in the freezer, you’d have a solid-colored cat!

And today’s doodle…

Doodlewash Prompt: Tiger’s Eye.
