Three French Hens Watercolor Illustration
Three French Hens

December 8, 2019

For our prompt of “Birds” today, I decided to sketch these three French hens. The song Twelve Days of Christmas was playing at my mother’s house and so the phrase stuck in my head. These are actually a special breed known as a Faverolles chicken, and they don’t actually wear fashion, but I just had to give one a little […]

Hot Chocolate Mug Marshmallows Hamster Watercolor Illustration
Drowning In Sweets

December 7, 2019

One of my favorite bits about this time of year is that everything is just a little bit extra. That mug of “Chocolate,” our prompt today, becomes so inviting that you want to just dive in! So, I decided to sketch a hamster doing just that, and we’ll assume the chocolate had cooled down a bit first. I’m currently visiting […]

Chihuahua Dog Portrait Watercolor Illustration
Furry Holiday Friend

December 6, 2019

The holiday season wouldn’t be complete without family and that certainly includes beloved “Pets,” our prompt for today. While staying at my mother’s house, my niece dropped by last night with her little dog, Cooper, so I decided to choose him for my sketch today. He’s a cute little chihuahua mix who was a bit shy at first, but then […]

Baby Koala Candy Cane Christmas Watercolor Painting
Candy Cane Dreams

December 5, 2019

As my inner child gets more and more excited every day, my head is filled with thoughts of “Peppermint,” our prompt for today, and fun! Today was a travel day as Philippe and I headed to Texas to visit my family. Since I’ve added dogs and cats to illustrate my delight in the season, I thought a sleepy baby koala […]

Bird Bell Holly Watercolor Illustration
Ringing Of The Bells

December 4, 2019

There’s something so nostalgic about “Bells,” our prompt for today. They’re certainly an icon of the season, but my family never had a fancy silver bell like this one. Our bells were plastic and plated in gold or silver paint and used for decorations. They didn’t actually ring. Trying to ring one would only produce an odd hollow clunking sound. […]

GUEST ARTIST: “My Profound Love For Watercolour” by Vasundhara (Piece Of Mind)

December 4, 2019

Hello! I am Vasundhara. I am born and was brought up in Satara, Maharashtra State, India. A beautiful scenic town situated amidst seven hills, Satara is a five picturesque hour drive from Mumbai. As a child, I was always fascinated by the beauty I found around me. My eyes used to form objects by seeing uneven shapes of stones, clouds, […]

Puppy Santa Hat Gingerbread House Watercolor Illustration
Little Gingerbread House

December 3, 2019

Our prompt of “Gingerbread” today, made me think of making gingerbread houses when I was a kid. Yeah, I know, this entire month makes me feel like a kid again. I’ve sketched pretty much everything on the planet by now, so I’m adding in happy animals whenever possible as a proxy to illustrate my delight. Today, we have a little […]

Cat In Christmas Tree Lights Watercolor Illustration
Mesmerized By Lights

December 2, 2019

While thinking about our prompt of “Lights” today, I thought about how I often to get a bit lost staring at the lights on our Christmas tree this time of year. Though I do have a penchant for sparkly things of all kinds, I just adore watching the lights flicker and pulse on the tree. It creates such a magical […]

GUEST ARTIST: “Ends and Beginnings, Beginnings and Ends” by Milena Guberinic

December 2, 2019

Hello friends! My name is Milena Guberinic. I was born in Yugoslavia and moved to Canada during the Yugoslav Wars of the 90s. I have mostly lived in Toronto since then. I always loved drawing, doodling, coloring, and creating all kinds of contraptions, but my first memory of falling in love with capturing something out in the world on paper […]

Cardinal Pine Cones Branch Watercolor Painting
The Season Begins

December 1, 2019

It’s the beginning of the month and that means a brand new Doodlewash art challenge! For our first prompt of “Pinecone,” I sketched a couple of them and added a cardinal for some festive color. Many of you know that I adore this time of year and that my inner child starts doing backflips the moment this month begins. And, […]

Day 30 - Fairytale Mushroom Fox Watercolor Illustration
Relaxing Into A Dream

November 30, 2019

For our prompt of “Fairytale” today, and our final prompt of November, I opted for this little fox resting in a field of storybook mushrooms. In fables, the fox is often presented as a trickster, but I figured even a trickster needs a little rest every now and then. Yet, I hope, as ever, you’ll keep right on painting with […]

Neapolitan Ice Cream Watercolor Illustration
Tasty Treats

November 29, 2019

For our prompt of “Dessert” today, I opted for a quick doodle of a fantasy one, since I couldn’t talk Philippe into having peach cobbler and ice cream for breakfast. That’s the dessert we had last night, but I forgot to snap a photo before I devoured it. In his defense, he did say the cobbler would be okay, but […]
