Today we have a super last minute and fast doodlewash, before I head out the door to meet up with friends, of this empty glass jar and red lid. There’s really no story behind this one, as I was looking for something simple to sketch and this seemed to fit the bill. Also, I wanted to try playing with just three colors again, so this one features just Cobalt Teal, Burnt Sienna and Pyrrol Red. This isn’t a combo I’ve ever used before so I hadn’t a clue how the colors would be when mixed together. It was a fun exercise and the complete lack of time made it even more of a practice in speed as this was done in less than 20 minutes.

I now have less than 5 minutes to write this post, and I just learned that I can paint faster than I can type as there’s only a couple minutes left. So I’ll just say that I hope everyone had a wonderful week and has a fabulous weekend! We’re in the third week of World Watercolor Month and it’s been amazing! I really am overwhelmed by just how many people have come together to paint the world with watercolor. There are around 3,300 members of the Facebook Group and already over 10,000 posts on Instagram of beautiful watercolors from people all over the globe. In a world that often seems uncertain, it’s nice to know there’s still a lot of beauty in the world. And that makes me so happy.

  1. A quick treat, Charlie! I love the caustics coming from the glass, smartly (and surely snappily!) done. Hmm, I’m wondering if this could be the jar of Nutella that you licked clean after yesterday’s gorge?😉

    Have fun!

  2. You have a magical touch with glass just as you do detail. Love this painting, and not just because I love green tinted glass jars, glass balls, glass…stuff. ;D If you had not said there was no story, I would have read something very profound into the imagery…and may still, but your color combination is wonderful and striking with the splash of red. Beautiful painting!

      1. I tried painting a little jar I’ve saved for eons…but man it’s awful, because I don’t have your skill with drawing perspective quite yet. It’s not post worthy, but it’s given me an incentive to keep on trying! Thanks again for the inspiration!

  4. Have fun, Charlie! 🙂 And your jar is AWESOME! Maybe you are “opening up” your jar of creativity and letting your imagination spill out?! Hehe! 🙂 And have a great week! I’m off to the lake for my vacation…

  5. Less than 20 minutes to paint?! I’d still be trying to get the cap off the watercolor paint. But of course you chose a subject at which you are exceptional – glass. So beautifully painted. I’m thinking of all the magic in that jar and all the magic in your hands.

  7. Wow and woo! Stunning, my friend! Beautiful work and I hope you had a good time. Sometimes I think fast is better, particularly with WC as we don’t Fuss or Fiddle! Thank you for sharing and I’m really glad you’re enjoying one of my prompts lol! I actually tried it myself last night, as I really should do at least one of them lol. 💜💜💜💜💜
