Cat Kitten Moon Galaxy Watercolor Painting Illustration
Daydreams At Night

June 6, 2020

For our prompt of “Half Moon,” I wasn’t sure what to make and then saw videos of a friend’s cat online and was suddenly inspired. So, I sketched the little kitty, named Theo, daydreaming under a crescent moon before heading off to sleep. At least that’s what seemed to appear after I just jumped in and started making something. I […]

Great White Shark Watercolor Painting Illustration
Swimming With Sharks

June 5, 2020

For our prompt of “Shark” today, the first thing I realized was that I’ve never painted a shark before in my life. So, I had to do a bit of research to study how they looked. And, as usual, I got lost in watching videos of sharks swimming around, and even people swimming with them. This is not something that […]

Brownie Whipped Cream Cherry Watercolor Illustration
Yummy Treats

June 4, 2020

Okay, so I got totally lost studying images of “Brownies,” our prompt for today, and I’m quite sure I was drooling at certain points during my research. I begged Philippe to make me some for a reference, but he just smiled at me, which is his polite way of refusing such frivolous requests. Now, of course, I’m craving brownies and […]

Beach Ball Ocean Sand Watercolor Painting
Having A Ball

June 3, 2020

For our prompt of “Beachball” today, after making a light sketch of just the ball, I decided to try something a little different. So, I skipped the doodle with my precious fountain pen and used only watercolor for this one. It was fun to play and try something that I don’t normally do. Even though it was still my usual […]

Nicoline Mann Art Therapy Personal Development Dog Watercolor Painting
GUEST ARTIST: “Art For Therapy And Personal Development” by Nicoline Mann

June 3, 2020

My name is Nicoline Mann and I’m from Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. I have always been deeply inspired by nature and animals. I loved drawing as a kid and even considered going to art school as a young adult, but my mom advised me that art was a hobby not a career. I didn’t trust that I could make a […]

Lotus Flower And Frog Watercolor Painting Illustration
In This Moment

June 2, 2020

For our prompt of “Lotus Flower” today, I sketched a single blossom being admired by a little frog. The lotus blossom is a symbol of enlightenment and hope. It rises out of the murkiest of waters and still manages to bloom. It’s my sincere hope that this troubled world will one day rise up and bloom with a spirit of […]

Ice Cream Scoops Watercolor Painting
Excessively Delicious

June 1, 2020

Welcome to a brand new month and the start of our June Doodlewash Art Challenge! The first prompt out of the gate is “Ice Cream,” so that’s what I sketched for today. Since I always make up fantasy desserts, it occurred to me that I don’t have to always stay with realistic portions and could “eat” as much ice cream […]

Tangerine Tree Watercolor Illustration
Fresh Stuff

May 31, 2020

We’ve reached the end of another month’s challenge with our final prompt of “Tangerines.” Actually, I can’t remember the last time I’ve eaten one. It’s not like they’re an exotic fruit or anything like that, as they’re readily available where I live. But, for some reason they just don’t make the shopping list. I want to give a huge thanks […]

Hummingbird Western Emerald Orange Flowers Branch Watercolor Illustration
Western Emerald

May 30, 2020

For our prompt of “Emerald” today, I was originally going to sketch the gemstone and then got sidetracked by a video of a little hummingbird known as a western emerald. So, that’s what we ended up with today. As many of you know by now, I very easily get distracted by videos when looking for ideas of what to sketch. […]

Greyhound Red Fawn Watercolor Illustration
Fast And Fun!

May 29, 2020

For our prompt of “Greyhound” today, I learned that these awesome creatures come in lots of various colors and sizes, so I wasn’t sure which version to sketch. I didn’t have much time at all, so I did a very quick sketch of one that made me smile most. And, I figured that a super quick sketch was a wonderful […]

International Burger Hamburger Day Watercolor Illustration
Happy Burger Day!

May 28, 2020

As I was going to figure out something to sketch for our prompt of “Wheat” today, I received an email from a food truck delivery service announcing it was International Burger Day. So, I ended up sketching a burger on a wheat bun. Upon learning of this momentous occasion, I first ran upstairs to notify Philippe. I told him in […]

Waffle Cup Ice Cream Cherry Watercolor Illustration
Waffle Bowl Dreams

May 27, 2020

For our prompt of “Cherries” today, I sketched a bit of ice cream in a waffle bowl with a cherry on top. Several months ago, Philippe and I were shopping at HomeGoods and I saw a miraculous appliance known as a waffle bowl maker. I immediately said that we should get it and almost had Philippe convinced until he once […]
