For the month of May, we’re going to have some fun with words that have multiple meanings! (see prompts below) This Doodlewash art challenge is open to anyone who wants to participate with just watercolor painting, just drawing (ink, colored pencils, crayons, etc.!), or a lovely mix of both!* Simply add the hashtag #doodlewashMay2022 when you post on all of 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!

*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 to post. It’s free!

Want to play along? We have a list of prompts for this month that seem, on the surface, like the usual list of things to draw and/or paint. (prompts supplied by Doodlewash Community member Mary Roff). Each word on this list is actually a homonym, which means there’s more than one definition of the word that you can choose! You can go with your first instinct, or think about the word’s other meanings and come up with something to illustrate one of those. It’s all up to you! And it’s going to be super fun!

Here are the daily prompts for the challenge. You can use these prompts if you like, none at all, or combine them with other prompts for even more inspiration! Join anytime and share when you can! (no matter what you create, make sure it’s whatever inspires you most in the moment, and remember to simply add the tag #doodlewashMay2022 when you post on social media so we can all see your lovely art!)
