#WorldWatercolorGroup August 2016 Adventure

Wow, World Watercolor Month July 2016 seemed to fly by and so many wonderful connections were made! And the coolest part is that we came together as a community to form World Watercolor Group! To keep things simple moving foward, whenever you post your watercolors, simply tag them #WorldWatercolorGroup on all social networks so we can find you and link to your lovely work in real time! (even if you’re not participating in the optional adventure theme this month!) Also, if you’re not a member of our Facebook Group, please join us there as well!

AUGUST ADVENTURE – Share Your Favorite Things!

Want to play along? For the August Doodlewash Adventure, let’s get to know each other better by sharing things we love most! (anything you’d like to share: favorite places, favorite foods, favorite colors, etc!).  This is a broad theme, but the hope is that you’ll share a couple sentences of story along with your paintings (you know, like that Charlie guy is prone to do!) so we can learn a little more about each other! Join in whenever and as often as you like! At the end of the month, you’ll have a very unique self-portrait in the form of paintings and sketches!
