For Day Twenty-Nine of World Watercolor Month, and our optional prompt of “Carefree,” I made a little doodle of a bunny leapfrogging over some mushrooms. Our neighborhood is littered with bunnies this year so
Another amazing review. I have used the ZenArt Brushes and they are OK, not my #1 to go with but OK… I can see that they look vibrant…. By the way, your review is amazing and full of info and detailed and I might check them out… If Sandra Review it, well it seems to be an interesting choice to test…. Thanks for your work Sandra.
For Day Twenty-Eight of World Watercolor Month, and our optional prompt of “Instrument,” I ended up with a fox playing a fiddle. I thought about the various instruments I’ve played or attempted to play in my life
I can’t imagine not having something that I’m learning, whether it’s just improving what I’ve been doing or starting something entirely new. You always say you’re just a big kid. I’m not sure if that’s why you love learning and improving, or if it’s the learning and improving that keeps you so young at heart!
Thanks for a great painting and a great lesson. When I joined this site a couple of years ago, I immediately wanted to paint and draw like some of the fantastic artists here including you. I am humbly reminded that it still takes practice and perseverance to achieve the goals I would like. I still have a ways to go but if I continue to practice it will get better
Hugs and thanks for the encouragement 😍

For Day Twenty-Seven of World Watercolor Month, and our optional prompt of “Camouflage,” I made a little sketch of a chameleon blending in with some flowers. Or, at least some quick scribbles I made while thinking
You’re such an inspiration–24 hours without a “anything” happening to write about and you simply show up, managing to intrigue and entertain us readers with your imagination! Oh, and 20 lbs, lost over the past few months; that’s amazing!
I was totally a chubby kid, until I hit high school. My mother claims I wasn’t, but I wore husky jeans and was called fat by the other kids. I wasn’t huge, but not remotely skinny then. As an adult I was dancing, exercising, performing in shows and one costumer said she refused to alter my clothes to be any smaller. Things change indeed! lol And I agree! Those furniture gallery houses make me so uncomfortable!! 😃💕
Bonjour, Cathy! 😃💕 The tables are not really interesting enough to sketch… hehe.. and we have much healthier food on them than tv dinners – https://doodlewash.com/tv-dinner-day/ – hihi… Congratulations are returning in September! That’s wonderful you’re returning to the kids again! (and apologies, that I’m only fluent in French reading and not in writing yet😊)
Your chameleon is gorgeous as the colors you used! Enjoyed the story of the tv tables which always were a staple in our house. I have one now but it mostly holds books and pads(for drawing) by my tv chair 🙂 Good memories though thanks!
Traditional watercolor, gouache, watercolor inks. Just when you think you know them all there comes yet another kind of watercolor! Like many ‘new’ discoveries, Gansai Tambi watercolor has been around forever. So
Sandra, another of you informative and delightful reviews…. I have use these Gansai and I like them a lot, specially when I want to achieve that oriental look into my pieces…. But your review has been very educational, like always… Thanks.
Thank you Sandra. You’re a life-saver. I bought Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours (36) about 8 months ago and dropped the box, mixing everything up. Until you review, I had no idea the numbers were on the bottom of the pans. Thanks to you, I was able to put them all back in order. A thousand thanks to you.
Sandra, oh my gosh I absolutely love your reviews. You are such an incredible artist – I love seeing your work and I am constantly amazing how you do those dribbles and see such beautiful things that come out above those splotches (sorry – lol – I’m not saying any of that correctly). To me it is absolutely amazing how you are so creative. I can’t believe I have such an awesome mentor and once my world quits falling apart … lolol … I will be back here posting again ;). Maybe I’ll try next what you do and see what happens 😉
Thank you, Zoie! The Loose & Lovely drawings are great fun to do. I did do a tutorial video of my process. Unfortunately, the process is hard to show because you could do it a thousand times and it would never come out the same way. That’s half the fun, but also makes it harder to teach because you can’t do it as a step-by-step.
For Day Twenty-Six of World Watercolor Month, and our optional prompt of “Focused,” I ended up with a little squirrel trying to solve a mystery. Although I’m always quite busy, I tend to lack focus much of the
I used to be so super-focused. People would talk to me and I wouldn’t even hear them. But over time, my jobs required me to multi-task and I had to train myself to not to focus as hard. Now I can barely focus at all! What a difference a decade (or two or three) can make!
Thanks so much, Mugdha! 😃💕 Almost called him Squirlock Holmes, but wasn’t sure if that worked. hehe And thanks! I guess my lack of focus can create a superpower in a way! Here’s a more relaxed week again!
day 25: Lost
Not all who wander are lost.....
I have spent a good share of my life wandering through forests and never gotten lost....
cities on the other hand I often get lost.
