Beagle Puppy and Donuts Watercolor Illustration
Sweet Temptations

October 19, 2021

For our prompt of “Ring” today, the first thing that came to mind was a stack of donuts. This was not because I’ve actually had a donut recently, but because I’ve been trying to avoid sweets in general lately. After I turned 50, my metabolism officially broke up with me completely without so much as an “it’s not you, it’s […]

Beagle Craft Project Glue Mess Watercolor Illustration
Making Messes

October 12, 2021

For our prompt of “Glue” today, I thought back to all of those fun craft projects I used to enjoy when I was a kid. Part of the fun, if not all of the fun, was being able to play and make a big old mess. I remember getting more glue on my body than anything I was actually meant […]

Owl Wearing Glasses Holding Candle Spooky Watercolor Illustration
The Middle Of The Night

October 5, 2021

For our prompt of “Bird” today, I decided to make a sketch of my little owl character holding a candle. I’ve not yet come up with a story for this owl, but one is starting to brew, so he might end up in a book at some point in the future. Last night, I woke up in the middle of […]

Cat Sitting In Blue Plastic Chair Reading Book Watercolor Illustration
Lost In That Story

September 28, 2021

For our prompt of “Chair” today, I ended up with a little doodle of a cat taking a break from reading a book. I’ve always loved reading and lately I’ve been trying to always have a book going. This usually means that I manage just a tiny bit of time each day to read before falling asleep. It takes much […]

Two Bees And Daisy Flower Watercolor Illustration Painting
Busy As A Bee

September 22, 2021

For our prompt of “Daisy” today, I doodled a daisy flower being visited by a couple of bees. Outside my front door there’s a cluster of flowers and I’m always fascinated watching all of the bees hovering around each individual flower and darting off to the next. I was standing there waiting for my dog Phineas to finish claiming a […]

Puppy Looking At Candle Watercolor Illustration
A Warm Glow

September 15, 2021

For our prompt of “Candle” today, I ended up with a puppy mesmerized by a glass votive candle. I have to admit to finding myself staring into the glow of a flickering candle and sort of getting lost in the moment. As we head into autumn here, my favorite season, the days will continue to get shorter, so candlelight is […]

GUEST ARTIST: “How Art Changed My Perspective” by Hridaya Keerthana

September 13, 2021

My name is Hridaya Keerthana and I’m a research scholar by profession from India. I started my journey with art at a very young age as my mother was an artist herself. Whenever I made any tantrums, some color pens or crayons would simply make me quiet. As a child, I would immerse myself in drawing and painting and that […]

Black Swan And White Swan Two Swans Love Watercolor Illustration
When We Meet Again

September 8, 2021

For our prompt of “Swan” today, I made a sketch of two different swans coming together in the water. Swans are such wonderful creatures! And, like most of nature’s creatures, I find them perfectly fascinating. They have such a beautiful elegance and they actually seem to be aware of this fact.  I remember being on a train a few years […]

Cat Kitten Tabby Looking At Green Butterfly Watercolor Illustration
Everyday Wonders

September 1, 2021

Welcome to a brand new month and our September Doodlewash Art Challenge! I’m jumping in as we begin the month to help kick things off using our first prompt of “Kitty,” with this little cat marveling at a butterfly. I have to admit to being like this little kitten when it comes to viewing things in nature. I find myself […]

Two Rabbits Bunnies Touching Noses Watercolor Illustration
Staying Connected

August 25, 2021

For our prompt of “Rabbit” today, I made a quick little sketch of a couple of bunnies meeting in the grass. I’ve mentioned before that there are lots and lots of rabbits in my neighborhood this season. There are more this year than I ever remember seeing in year’s past. What I didn’t mention is that I squeal like a […]
