Flying Dog Super Hero Watercolor Painting Illustration

September 18, 2020

For our prompt of “Hero” today, I thought of comic book heroes, and how I’ve always envied the ones who had the ability to fly. Well, I always thought it would be super cool when I was a little kid. These days, I don’t really like heights, but I guess if I had the power to fly I could quickly […]

Just One Bite

September 17, 2020

For our prompt of “Snack” today, I had only a few precious minutes to come up with something to sketch and indeed actually sketch it, so I just sketched the first idea that popped into my head. A little squirrel, and then what he might like to snack on, which was followed with the idea of strawberries. Indeed, as summer […]

Happy Corgi Dog On Beach Watercolor Painting Illustration
That Happy Place

September 16, 2020

For our prompt of “Happy” today, I went to where I often go when I’m trying to think of something happy. Straight to the beach! Well, at least an imagined one that I’m sitting on as I’m nowhere near an actual beach, but have the fondest of memories of my visits there. However, a bit of just sitting and relaxing […]

String Game Cats Eye Kitten Childhood Games Watercolor Painting Illustration
String Games

September 15, 2020

For our prompt of “Childhood Game” today, I tried to think of a game that I hadn’t yet sketched. Then I thought about that game we used to play with string. Though not really a competitive game, it was more of a mental challenge that consisted of creating shapes by pulling a loop of string back and forth through one’s […]

Flightless Birds Emu Ostrich Emperor Penguin Kiwi On Airplane Jet Watercolor Painting Illustration
Flightless Birds

September 14, 2020

For our prompt of “Flight” today, the things that came to mind were flying on a plane as well as flying birds. This made me wonder about flightless birds and how they might enjoy a chance to sail through the sky. So, we ended up with a group of flightless birds chartering a private jet for a bit of sightseeing. […]

Kitten Cat Playing Tennis Ball Watercolor Painting Illustration
Eye On The Ball

September 13, 2020

For our prompt of “Sport” today, I wasn’t sure what to sketch as I’ve never really played or been interested in sports. Though, I did sometimes bat around tennis balls with my best friend in high school. He was actually good at playing tennis, and I was complete rubbish, but it was still rather fun. Keeping my eye on the […]

Harvest Mice On Sunflower Watercolor Painting Illustration
Time To Relax

September 12, 2020

For our prompt of “Harvest” today, I made a little sketch of two little harvest mice taking a break in a sunflower. I’ve been spending my Saturday as I always do, which means I’ve been relaxing all day long. Well, I took a break from that to watch videos of harvest mice running around before drawing and painting them. They’re […]

Playing Dress Up Cat Wearing Shirt Tie Shoes Watercolor Painting Illustration
One Size Fits All

September 11, 2020

For our prompt of “Dress Up” today, my mind immediately went back to when I was a little kid and would try on my father’s clothes. This was equal parts wanting to be a big kid and wanting to be just like my dad. The shirt was a mess of fabric and it felt like being inside a big tent. […]

Grey Crowned Crane With Baby Chick Watercolor Painting Illustration
When I’m Older

September 10, 2020

For our prompt of “Crane” today, I chose a crowned crane with her baby chick. I can only imagine the sheer wonder a baby chick must feel upon seeing mom with her elegant golden crown and lovely feathers. It must be something along the lines of, “Wow, I’ll turn into that when I’m older!” Indeed, it’s quite a transformation as […]

County Fair Ferris Wheel Tents Rabbit Family Watercolor Painting Illustration
Going To The Fair

September 9, 2020

For our prompt of “County Fair” today, a ton of lovely memories came flooding back to me. When I was a kid, I remember going to a local fair and I would first see the ferris wheel in the distance towering above everything as we approached the fairgrounds. I can still remember the excitement I felt, even before I got […]

Chimpunks Having A Birthday Party Watercolor Painting Illustration
Wild Party

September 8, 2020

For our prompt of “Wildlife” today, the first thing that came mind was a little chipmunk. One dashed in front of me as I was walking home yesterday and it was the cutest little thing. The chipmunk didn’t even seem to notice me, and after stopping briefly, it shot off in another direction as though it were going to be […]

Tea Time For Tabby Cat Kitten Watercolor Painting Illustration
Tea Time

September 7, 2020

For our prompt of “Tea” today, I ended up with a couple of kittens enjoying a classic cup. I suppose one could call this one “tea time for tabbies.” I love the concept of taking a break for tea and nibbles in the late afternoon as it’s all so civilized. Something to tide one over until it’s time for dinner. […]
