My name is Rebecca Fish Ewan and I grew up in Berkeley, California, but have lived in Tempe, Arizona for the past 30 years. Even though I’ve been drawing my whole life and as a child declared I was going to be an artist when I grew up, I didn’t fall in love with watercolor until graduate school. Coincidently, also […]

Cricket Singing Watercolor Illustration
When Crickets Sing

May 12, 2021

Popping in for our prompt of “Crickets” today with a quick little sketch of a cricket singing. My mind wandered as usual and I ended up imagining a cricket who went beyond chirps and dreamed of a full performance and perhaps releasing a solo album. Entirely made up from my imagination, of course, but if I were ever to witness […]

Puppy With Teddy Bear Jack Russell Watercolor Illustration
That Next Hug

May 3, 2021

For our prompt of “Puppy” today, I made a sketch of a little Jack Russell puppy cuddling up with a teddy bear. When I was a kid, my mother used to make me teddy bears, and I had one in nearly every color. My mom and I share April birthdays, but we haven’t been able to see each other in […]

Little Baby Animals

April 26, 2021

There’s no way I was going to miss our prompt of “Newborn” today, which to me, always ends up as another chance to sketch baby animals. Here’s a quick little sketch of a couple of my favorites. I don’t have any young elephants or giraffes being born in my neighborhood, but there are lots and lots of little bunnies popping […]

Chipmunk Eating Colorful Rainbow Grapes Watercolor Illustration
Something To Treasure

April 13, 2021

Thought I’d jump in for the prompt of “Grapes” today, with a little chipmunk eating some ripening ones. While I’ve always celebrated April as my birthday month, today is actually the official day of my birth (and I was even born on a Tuesday!). Also, it’s a bit of a milestone as I’m turning 50 years old today. This was […]

Bunny Yellow Raincoat Umbrella Watercolor Illustration
When The Rain Stops

April 6, 2021

Jumping in again for our prompt of “Raincoat” today, with a little doodlewash of a bunny wearing one. I love a rainy day, though sometimes where I live it turns into a nonstop week of rain. So, when the rain finally stops and the sun begins to shine again, it’s really quite a wonderful thing indeed. Sometimes, on those special […]
