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.

By the way, the paper I used is the Hahnemühle Collection Sketch, which I will be reviewing in July, along with the Collection Watercolour papers. 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) …

WORLD WATERCOLOR MONTH

If you decide to join in, use the hashtag #WorldWatercolorMonth when you post your watercolor works so it will be included in the  online global gallery!

Any watercolor work with even a splash of watercolor is allowed. You can follow the daily Doodlewash prompts, but it isn’t required. Your work is welcome whether you join in for one or a few days, or whether you join in every day!

List of Doodlewash Prompts

Owl’s Eye -Postcards for the Lunch Bag

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.

Where does the time go? Out the window it seems – I managed to do a painting, but I didn’t get around to looking up facts about the hibiscus bug.

And today’s doodle…

Photos for a change III


I really am painting up a storm, but it’s all for art supply reviews and birthday presents so I can’t post any of it yet.

So paintings will be few for a while, and then I’ll inundate you.

I’m sharing the photos that I’m using for a Facebook challenge.

The Challenge: Kathy Delumpa Allegri nominated me to show a pic of my life, work, studio, or exhibition for 10 days. 10 photos, 10 days (with no explanation). I don’t like to nominate others, so if you are interested just jump right in.

No explanation! It’s a mystery, lol.

The photo above was Day 8.

And today’s doodle…

Doodlewash Prompt: Yo-yo

Did you know that the Leopard Seal is a predator second only to the Orca? They eat fish, bird, penguins, krill, and even other seals. They’ve killed humans, though that is rare.

And today’s doodle…

Photos for a change


I’m currently working on reviews, videos and trying to get another Diggory Wombat book done for hubby’s birthday at the end of July. So I’m doing lots of artwork, but can’t share most of it yet.

Which means I didn’t have a painting to post today. I accepted one of those challenges to post something for a certain number of days on Facebook (please don’t nominate for them! I won’t nominate anyone myself). I thought I’d share what I’ve posted so far. I’ll share some of the others later this week.

The Challenge: Kathy Delumpa Allegri nominated me to show a pic of my life, work, studio, or exhibition for 10 days. 10 photos, 10 days (with no explanation). I don’t like to nominate others, so if you are interested just jump right in.

And today’s doodle…

Buttons, Buttons

I realized I didn’t have anything but my daily doodles for today and tomorrow, so I did some quick abstracts to post.

Ever wonder why buttons are on opposite sides for men and women? Most men dressed themselves, and most being right-handed, it was easier to have buttons on the right. Most women of wealth were dressed by someone else, and left-sided button were easier to see. As usual in this world, poor people seldom had buttons so no one cared how they dressed.

And today’s doodle…
