Happy Independence Day to all who celebrate!


It’s the Fourth of July and Independence Day here in the U.S. Fireworks have been banned to due extreme heat and fire danger, so I thought I’d just cool off with color-coordinated treats!

Have a fun and safe day whether you celebrate or not. Stay cool (or warm as weather dictates)!

Pansies for Reflection


It’s July! It’s a month! It’s World Watercolor Month!

#WorldWatercolorMonth prompt: Reflection. One of the things that Pansies symbolize is reflection.

To prepare for a busy World Watercolor Month, I carved some Speedy-cut blocks into simple stamps as frames for  1 x 1 1/2 in paintings

Angela Fehr’s prompts are open to interpretation, so I decided to make them all about flowers – the prompt word in the flower name, or what the flower symbolized. Like that.

  • Paint-Aquafine Watercolor
  • Paper-Hahnemühle Grey-toned Watercolor Paper
  • Brush-ZenArt Black Tulip brush

REVIEW: Aquafine Watercolour in Tube and Pans


Today, I’m reviewing Aquafine’s tube and pan watercolors at Doodlewash. These are nicely priced starter watercolor sets with a great selection of colors, that are bold and intense. Not sure if Aquafine is the watercolor choice for you? Not sure if you would prefer tube or pan paints? This review may help you decide.

The Liberty Bell


#DoodlewashJune2021 prompt: Waffle. Uh, to waffle is to carry on without really saying anything. Did you know that today, we don’t know when the Liberty Bell was cracked and I’ll be that’s because someone waffled on when accused of doing it!

  • Paint: Schmincke watercolor and Van Gogh Metallic watercolor.
  • Paper: Hahnemühle grey-toned watercolour paper.
  • Brush: ZenArt Black Tulip

Refreshment When It Sizzles


#DoodlewashJune2021 prompt: Sizzle. When the weather sizzles, the cold refreshments come out!

Did you know that chocolate was originally used as an alcoholic drink, a cacao wine fermented from cacao fruits, that is one of the oldest alcoholic beverages in the world?

Loose & Lovely Garden with a Little Lavender


#DoodlewashJune2021 prompt: Lavender.

I was playing around with the wet-in-wet technique and decided to create a garden. And there’s some lavender in there. My gardens have every kind of flower, lol.

I was playing with this method as an idea for comparing different types of watercolor – pan, tube & watercolor inks. You’ll be seeing how I do this in some upcoming World Watercolor Month Reviews.
