Watermelon on Seagreen


Artwork: Da Vinci Gouache in a Hahnemühle 1584 notebook.

Have you entered my Giveaway for Hahnemühle Toned Watercolour Books? Ends tonight!

It’s the first day of May, so it’s time to start the new Doodlewash prompts! And, not to toot my own horn, I was the one who came up with the list this month (okay, I tooted. The horn, that is).

Doodlewash prompt: Watermelon

Earlier this year, came out with the 1584 notebook, which is a dot grid journal with 40 pages of blank colored paper. I’ve been using one with lilac pages for a while now, but recently I received one that has a section of seagreen pages!

These books are not formulated for watercolor, but I like most Hahnemühle paper I’ve used, it handles it fairly well. So I grabbed a brush and some gouache and painted a watermelon on the green paper.

I want whole books of these colored papers! I love them! I got on of the books with peach paper too, so that will be up in a day or two.

To learn more about the 1584, you can read my review here at Doodlewash.

  1. awesome! that shell looks so real! I haven’t gotten brave enough to try the green pages yet. I’m using the dotted pages to make notes from various art classes I’ve done. keeping them all in one place. I love the book so far.

  2. This is beautifully rendered, perfect textures. You captured the juicy fruit and the shiny hard rind, and I like the splashes of color on the ground – looks like spurting watermelon juice.
