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.
