JUNE 2019 ART CHALLENGE: Fun In The Sun!

During the month of June, it’s time to celebrate all of the fun and lovely things we find outdoors on a clear and happy day that’s filled with sunshine. Even if the days aren’t quite as sunny where you are, June is still the perfect warm-up for World Watercolor Month in July! This Doodlewash art challenge is open to anyone who wants to participate with watercolor painting and/or drawing (ink, colored pencils, crayons, etc.!) as well!* Just add the hashtag #doodlewashJune2019 when you post on all your social networks, and if you also use lovely watercolor add the #WorldWatercolorGroup hashtag as well so we can find you and link to your lovely watercolors!

Join us all month long or simply jump in whenever you like! 

*NOTE: World Watercolor Group on Facebook and the associated hashtag is still only for works that contain watercolor, of course, so be sure to join us here in Doodlewash Club to post your drawings! Simply log in to Doodlewash.com with your chosen social network to post. It’s free! 


Duck In The Sun Illustration - Charlie O'Shields - DoodlewashThere’s just something wonderful about being outdoors in the sun. Whether you’re on a beach with ocean waves and a cool breeze or taking a lovely walk through the park. Looking at the world around us is always an awe-inspiring experience, but looking at the world with the eyes of an artist is even more thrilling! Every shape, every color, becomes a moment of pure inspiration. It can also be a wonderful chance to try a bit of plein air painting or urban sketching as well! Sketch from our prompts or practice whatever you’d like to try and I hope you’ll all feel enthusiastic and excited to try some watercolor as we prepare for the official month-long celebration of watercolor with World Watercolor Month in July!
