GUEST ARTIST: “About Gouache, Watercolor, Paper, and Experimenting” by Ayna Paisley

July 31, 2021

My name is Ayna Paisley and I’m a self-taught, London-based artist. I divide my time creating commissioned works, teaching and sharing my art practice through my social media channels. My body of work consists of peculiar contemporary pieces created with gouache, acrylic, encaustic medium, and oil paint, juxtaposed with paper collages and vintage imagery. I’ve exhibited my work in London, […]

Two Birds Blue Jay English Robin Watercolor Illustration Painting
When We’re Together

July 30, 2021

For Day 30 of World Watercolor Month, and our optional prompt of “Feathered,” I sketched a pair of birds in a tree. When I first started sketching stuff, I would often sketch birds as I find them very beautiful and there are so many different varieties. Also, they are way more challenging to draw than they seem, so it’s always […]

Rabbit Bunny Leaping Over Mushrooms Watercolor Illustration Painting
Jumping For Joy

July 29, 2021

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 there are always around four or five that I spot on our walks in the evening. There were a couple of baby bunnies hanging out by […]

Fiddling Fox

July 28, 2021

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 and the violin was the one I played the most. I’m not sure I was particularly amazing when it came to this instrument, […]

Chameleon Rainbow Colorful Camouflage Watercolor Illustration Painting
Blending In

July 27, 2021

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 about colorful flowers. Though chameleons aren’t quite as capable of changing into any background they pass like we might see happen in cartoons, it’s […]

Sherlock Holmes Squirrel Magnifying Glass Watercolor Illustration Painting
On The Case

July 26, 2021

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 time. It’s very difficult for me to concentrate on one project for very long and I tend to bounce around between things […]

Lost Shoe Red Sneaker Mouse Watercolor Illustration Painting
That One Lost Shoe

July 25, 2021

For Day Twenty-Five of World Watercolor Month, and our optional prompt of “Lost,” I was again a little lost as to what to create. Then, on a walk today, I saw a single shoe on the sidewalk and so we ended up with a quick sketch of a little mouse discovering it. I often see a single lost shoe on […]

English Robin Blue Weathered Rustic Birdhouse Watercolor Illustration Painting
Fixer-Upper

July 24, 2021

For Day Twenty-Four of World Watercolor Month, and our optional prompt of “Weathered,” I have to admit that nothing came to mind right away that I wanted to sketch. So I worked on other projects for awhile and came back to it. By the time I did, I only had a few minutes left to make something so I just […]

Cat Kitten In Bed Under Covers Watercolor Illustration Painting
Hiding At Home

July 23, 2021

For Day Twenty-Three of World Watercolor Month, and our optional prompt of “Home,” I thought about how excited I was for the coming weekend. Most specifically, getting to sleep in a bit and stay home. Philippe and I don’t have any plans this weekend, which is always my favorite sort of weekend. Though I do love having fun things on […]

Coffee Jitters Jittery Dog With Mug Watercolor Illustration Painting
Just One More Cup

July 22, 2021

For Day Twenty-Two of World Watercolor Month, and our optional prompt of “Jittery,” a cup of coffee came to mind. Well, actually a few too many cups of coffee as sometimes happens to me when I’m not paying attention in the morning. I’ll normally just have a couple cups of coffee. But, if I’m also checking emails and working on […]

Cat Paws Playing Patty Cake Pat-a-cake Watercolor Illustration Painting
Pat-A-Cake

July 21, 2021

For Day Twenty-One of World Watercolor Month, and the optional prompt of “Tactile,” I imagined playing a rousing round of pat-a-cake, or sometimes called patty cake, with a cat. Not entirely sure how I ended up here, but it’s the first thing that popped to mind so I just went with it. I used to have a very complex sort […]
