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
