Getting Ready For World Watercolor Month 2022

July is World Watercolor Month! To learn more about this, visit Doodlewash.

I really want to do all the prompts in a journal just for the occasion, but worry a bit that time will be an issue (don’t we all?). Then I had an idea for a theme – silhouettes.

I’ve got a Hahnemühle 100% Cotton Watercolour book and I’m getting it prepped by writing the prompts for each page, and doing a loose and lovely background. Those are quick and easy to do, so I can do a page here and there, ahead of time.

Then when the prompt rolls around all I have to do is some kind of silhouette.

Easy Peasy – right? Okay it probably won’t be as easy as all that, but definitely easier than coming up with a full painting each day.

These are the two backgrounds I’ve done so far.

  • Hahnemühle 100% Cotton Watercolour book
  • Aquafine Watercolor
  • Malden Flake Salt added to second page

  1. Great idea! I have a sketchbook for my florals and whenever I am painting and have leftover paint, I add that to a sketchbook page or even a watercolour pad. When I am ready to work in my sketchbook, or on that separate piece of paper, the colour has already been applied so it is much easier, and quicker, to get my sketch on paper. Cheers!
