Boy With Slingshot Watercolor Illustration
Slingshot Memories

October 19, 2019

For our Doodlewash prompt of “Rock,” paired with the Inktober prompt of “Sling,” we have a much younger Charlie with a slingshot. Thinking back, I’m not sure I remember actually owning a proper slingshot when I was a kid, but I do remember trying out a friend’s once. The target was a series of aluminum cans stacked on a small […]

Sloth On Tree Branch Watercolor Illustration
The Magic Of Misfits

October 18, 2019

For our Doodlewash prompt of “Sloth,” combined with the Inktober prompt of “Misfit,” I ended up with this little drawing. I’ve always loved sloths and find them to be remarkable creatures. They have the distinction of being the slowest animals in the world. This also makes them a bit of mammal misfit, in many ways. While speed in movement is […]

Penguin Polar Bear Christmas Holiday Ornaments Watercolor Illustration
Friends Across The Globe

October 17, 2019

For our Doodlewash prompt of “Glass,” combined with the Inktober Prompt of “Ornament,” we have a couple of holiday ornaments. I thought a penguin and polar bear would be fun to place inside and realized I’d unknowingly created a bit of a concept. Though you often see polar bears and penguins around the holidays depicted together, they are actually worlds […]

Squirrel Grabbing For Acorn Nut Watercolor Illustration
Wildly Curious

October 16, 2019

For our Doodlewash prompt of “Squirrel,” combined with the Inktober prompt of “Wild” I opted for a squirrel going nuts over an acorn. Actually, a few days ago, when I posted an illustration of our dog Phineas and his friends, the squirrel got sort of lost in the background. So, I figured since Michael the squirrel is Phineas’ best friend, […]

Baby Unicorn Watercolor Illustration
A Little Unicorn

October 15, 2019

For our Doodlewash prompt of “Unicorn,” paired with the Inktober prompt of “Legend,” we have this tiny little napping unicorn. Though often depicted as large horses, I love the depictions found on old tapestries where you’d often find a much smaller unicorn laying in the lap of some lucky maiden as though it were a small dog. The earliest stories […]

Mushroom Forest Storybook Watercolor Illustration
Entering The Mushroom Forest

October 14, 2019

For our Doodlewash prompt of “Forest,” combined with the Inktober prompt of “Overgrown,” we have this fairytale mushroom forest. I felt like doodling mushrooms, so I just made them gigantic as you can see by the Little Charlie whom I added for scale. And though it’s Halloween month and ripe for something spooky, I opted for an impossibly happy forest […]

Tree Frog watercolor Brenda Cunningham
GUEST ARTIST: “Creative Spark” by Patty Cunningham

October 14, 2019

My name is Patty Cunningham and I’m from Greenville, South Carolina. When I was a young girl, I thought anyone who created art was special, somewhat god-like; that they had a special talent, gift or vision specific to them and denied to mere mortals, such as myself.  As I grew, I realized that we are all artists.  We all have […]

Animals Bonfire Campfire Watercolor Illustration
Phineas And Friends

October 13, 2019

For our Doodlewash prompt of “Bonfire,” paired with the Inktober prompt of “Ash,” we have what is no doubt my oddest doodle yet this month. I decided to sketch a bonfire attended by our dog Phineas and his friends. Philippe and I have crafted elaborate narratives for the set of creatures that occasional show up on our balcony. We assume […]

Dragon Baby And Mother Watercolor Illustration
Dragon Dreams

October 12, 2019

For our Doodlewash prompt of “Reptile,” combined with the Inktober prompt of “Dragon,” I nearly opted for a Komodo dragon or some other actual lizard, but decided to try a fantasy illustration instead. Dragons are typically portrayed as rather fierce, attacking castles and whatnot, but that’s not really my style. Instead, I opted for a happier moment just before all […]

Fox Snow Scene Watercolor Illustration
A Fox In The Snow

October 11, 2019

For our Doodlewash prompt of “Fox,” combined with the Inktober prompt of “Snow,” we have a sleepy little fox in the woods. There used to be a little red fox that lived in the cemetery next to our home and we could watch him from our window. Seeing that familiar pop of bright rusty orange in the white snow, was […]

Sunlit Tulips - Watercolor Painting by Brenda Jiral
GUEST ARTIST: “How Art Helps Me Through the Difficult Days” by Brenda Jiral

October 11, 2019

Hello, my name is Brenda Jiral and I am originally from Rochester, Michigan. I currently live in Hamilton, Michigan with my husband and two of my three children. I have been drawn to art for as long as I can remember. I see beauty in things that most people would simply pass over or dismiss. Like the way bright sunshine […]

Apple Pie Cooling Window Cat Watercolor Inktober Illustration
Craving A Slice Of Pie

October 10, 2019

For our Doodlewash prompt of “Pies,” combined with the Inktober prompt of “Pattern,” I ended up with a pie cooling in the window of a completely imagined place, up to an including the wonky perspective. There’s actually a crazy amount of various patterns on display here as I kept adding things to the scene as I went along. No doubt, […]
