I am a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by linking to Amazon.com. This doesn’t affect the price you pay at all, and we never link to products that we don’t actually use and enjoy. Affiliate programs allow me to continue running Doodlewash® (and bring new awesome features to our community!) and World Watercolor Group™ and cover the fees associated with doing so. And it also helps me to continue to provide a forum for artists around the globe to promote themselves on this website at no charge to the artists or my readers, so I’m incredibly grateful for your support!
I also participate in affiliate programs with Bluprint (formerly the Craftsy platform, it’s where I got my start with painting instruction!), ConsumerCrafts.com (great deals on open stock fine art supplies!) and Angela Fehr (love her fun and accessible classes!), Birgit O’Connor (just totally gorgeous paintings!) Jean Lurssen (her style is so unique and amazing!), Da Vinci Paint Co. (adore their watercolors!) under the exact same conditions I mentioned above, and in many cases, I’m allowed to give my readers an alert when products are available at a discounted price!
All of these programs help me cover costs associated with running this site as well as World Watercolor Group™ and allow me to keep Doodlewash free of banner advertising and focused on the lovely art and artists that appears here, so I really can’t thank you enough for your support!
