For the final day of World Watercolor Month, and our optional prompt of “Jewel,” I’m ending with this quick little sketch of a shiny pink gem and a happy little mouse. I’m so thankful to everyone who came together
How perfect Charlie. I so love it when you are able to post every day – but with your busy life I don’t know how you find the time. Just awesomely talented you are!!! 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend. I’m going to miss you! The little mouse with the heart is adorable 🙂
Charlie? New project? Now you have me going!!! And I agree with Philippe’s take on those horrid frozen dinners EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW preservatives etc etc. This Italian cook is aghast. Speaking of which tomorrow is spaghetti day — and the day I paint the tiger swallowtail butterfly I snapped on an early early morning walk awhile ago. It sat there and waited for me!! I look forward to seeing you here tomorrow too!
I feel like I really accomplished something this month. I think I did at least two or three paintings a day. It has to be a record for me, lol! I can’t wait to see what your next project is going to be!
Thank you for all your hard work and daily posts for World Watercolour month!
It is a lot of work, and you did a great job!
I loved reading your posts and your doodles are amazing!
I am looking forward to whatever comes next!
Have a great rest now!

Ayna Paisley, Art schools have one way of doing things: their way. Better to learn on your own and come up with your own little tricks and methods, like Jean Haines says. Your work is beautiful!! I definitely will check out your website.
#WorldWatercolorMonth prompts: Jewel. Pen:Zebra Zensations Technical The sap from the Jewelweed is an effective antidote to poison ivy! My last sheet of flowers for World Watercolor Month is complete! Yay! It’s been a blast!
Don’t forget that the limited time World Watercolor Month Bags will disappear Aug 1!
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
Thanks for joining us with your doodles and post this month, Charlie, your ramblings always make me smile! I look forward to heating about your next fun adventure and thanks for the wonderful community you created here!
Well Charlie, sniff, I will miss your daily missives and sketches, sniff. I look forward to seeing you when you do make an appearance. Enjoy your pizza — fried rice, red pepper, baby choy, and garlic for dins over here.
I’m sending you the biggest hug ever my friend! 😃💕 I’m so sorry to hear that, but so happy to hear that it wasn’t something worse. 😘Oh, and pizza helps with just about everything I’ve found! haha As for the French version, it can be “fin de semaine” but they usually just use the English and say yep, “le weekend!” 😉
Thank so much, Mugdha! 😃💕 That’s so sweet of you to say! Yes, the daily posts take pretty much all my free time, so I have to curb those when I’m working on something new. Which lately seems to be all of the time… hehe… but it’s so fun to DO! Hugs to you my friend and hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!
Marisella see a chiropractor and always always bend your knees and do a pelvic tilt (stick it out) before bending. And always bend your knees before lifting. Strain doesn’t always hurt when you do it and it can catch you later. Take care and see a c hiropractor once a month for sure for maintenance.
Marisela I think the Covid thing will come to be like TB and polio.They surface once in awhile and are taken care of right away. It might even be like the annual flu shot. While you work your daily art and other things think of all the others doing theirs and know that you never walk alone.
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
Another amazing review. I have used the ZenArt Brushes and they are OK, not my #1 to go with but OK… I can see that they look vibrant…. By the way, your review is amazing and full of info and detailed and I might check them out… If Sandra Review it, well it seems to be an interesting choice to test…. Thanks for your work Sandra.
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
I can’t imagine not having something that I’m learning, whether it’s just improving what I’ve been doing or starting something entirely new. You always say you’re just a big kid. I’m not sure if that’s why you love learning and improving, or if it’s the learning and improving that keeps you so young at heart!
Thanks for a great painting and a great lesson. When I joined this site a couple of years ago, I immediately wanted to paint and draw like some of the fantastic artists here including you. I am humbly reminded that it still takes practice and perseverance to achieve the goals I would like. I still have a ways to go but if I continue to practice it will get better
Hugs and thanks for the encouragement 😍
