World Watercolor Month Begins

July has arrived and along with it the first annual World Watercolor Month celebration.  Charlie at Doodlewash, who initiated the World holiday, has proposed 31 days of painting with watercolors to celebrate, and along with artists from around the World, it seems like a fun thing to do.

It all begins with one step, or in this case…one painting. Happy World Watercolor Month!

Sweetens gentle ocean trades

Singing island songs


(With no theme for the month it is just play and have fun, make mistakes and splash around. Arches #140 CP; 11″x15″ using only a flat 1″ brush with transparent Daniel Smith and M. Graham watercolors…and plenty of coffee. lol.)

      You are so kind, thank you for such a sweet comment. I am horrible at keeping up with the reader and my email, anything high-tech really, but I do love our blogging community and miss them when I am away too long. Thanks for visiting.

    I’m just catching up in the blog-sphere,,, This painting is incredible! I love how she is just melting in light. And amazing that you have done so much work in a month. (I just did my own marathon recently, but your paintings have so much more finesse.)

      Your marathon was a beautiful symphony and inspiring. I appreciate your kind and thoughtful words and am glad you liked the first offering for this month’s challenge as it was painted with just as much heart as it was mind.
